GET MATCHED WITH A LOCAL GURU

When planning your trip on baboo, we’ll connect you directly with one of our local specialists who are skilled at customizing trips built around specific interests. The local travel gurus have a deep destination knowledge and the ability to offer off-the-beaten path ventures and expert advice and will help you create and book the ideal trip.

 

By focusing on nature and the local population, we are able to offer travel in a responsible way, so we can all help to make the world a better place!

UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS

We believe that every trip is an opportunity to discover something new about the world around us and about ourselves. It may be the heavenly flavours of your new favourite dish, a fascinating cultural celebration, a breathtaking scenic landscape or setting foot in a new city for the first time. The possibilities are limitless. You may re-discover yourself in places you never would have imagined. 

 

To us, these unforgettable moments are the true essence of travel and we want to share as many of them with you as possible!

Whatever you seek, we are here to help you!

CUSTOMIZE YOUR IDEAL ADVENTURE

Your tailor-made itinerary will include personalized approaches to accommodation, experiences, guides, routes, and even transportation. 

Our travel gurus have been selected to be able to support you in creating the most meaningful experience whenever possible, whether you want to hike an alternative way to Machu Picchu to avoid the crowds or want to experience a place while caring for the planet by riding a bike.

FOCUS ON PERSONALISED EXPERIENCES

baboo differentiates from the most conventional travel platforms. Most of our trips are private, tailor-made and catered to fulfil all your specific interests. Your adventure will take place when it best suits you, and accommodation, including activities, type of transportation and itinerary, are all customizable to your needs.

PERSONALIZED ATTENTION THROUGHOUT

You will receive personalized attention from your local expert throughout the entire process of trip planning as well as during your trip. Your local expert knows the ins and outs of their destinations and can give you the best recommendations from the start.

Plus, they will be there for you if anything comes up while you’re travelling.

FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE & LOCAL EXPERTISE

Our travel gurus are passionate about their destination and know the ins and outs of their city or country far better than anyone else. They are eager to share their first-hand knowledge with you while helping you plan the perfect trip. They will take into consideration all of your travel preferences and needs, combined with their understanding of local attractions, climate, festivals, seasons and more.

This valuable local expertise will make your trip an ultimate success.

REINVENTING POPULAR ATTRACTIONS

Travelling off-the-beaten-path doesn’t mean skipping the highlights of a place. Our local gurus can help you customize any type of experience in any location so that you can make the most of it! We want you to see all of the popular attractions of each place you visit as well as the hidden gems you never knew existed.

 

Your local travel guru will give you insider tips on the best way to visit popular attractions so you can avoid crowds and make the most of your time. 

They can recommend alternative activities or cool new places to visit and can help you decide what suits you best. For example, they can explain the pros and cons of trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu vs. the Salkantay trek vs. taking a train excursion.

RESPONSIBLE & KNOWLEDGEABLE GUIDES

Having a fantastic guide can add unparalleled value to your travel experience. They are key pieces of a well-planned trip because they not only give you local insights; they also help you make the most of your time and keep you safe. We work exclusively with certified guides who are responsible, experienced and knowledgeable about their destination. All travel gurus are hand-picked and verified local experts who specialize in day and multi-day custom trips.

FEEL AT HOME EVERY NIGHT

Choosing your accommodation can be one of the trickiest parts about planning a trip and our local experts are here to take the guesswork out of this tedious process. Whether you want to be steps away from the action or prefer staying outside of town in a quiet secluded spot, our local experts will ensure your accommodation fits your needs perfectly.  

DETAILED TRIP ITINERARY

Once you’ve booked your trip you will receive a detailed trip itinerary with specific information on all of your activities, transfers, pick-ups and accommodation. Our local experts will also send you recommendations on places to eat, things you can’t miss out on, and cool new spots to check out. 

OUR PRICES

We put you directly in contact with local experts in order to eliminate middlemen such as travel agencies and tour operators so we can pass the savings on to you directly. This also puts you in touch with the local experts directly which helps to boost the local economy

ON-SITE SUPPORT

While you are travelling, both the travel guru and baboo staff will be available to give you support should you have any questions, concerns, or if something doesn’t go to plan. We will also be there to help you make changes or customize your experience while travelling, of course as long as the changes are doable and realistic, and to help you make the most of your vacation by suggesting where to eat or shop, or find a dentist in case of an emergency.

EVERYTHING IS TAKEN CARE OF

Most of the experiences we offer and help planning, include everything from the moment you land to the moment you return home. This means that you don’t have to worry about any extra expenses and can better manage your trip’s economy. In all our quotes you will clearly see if a cost cannot be included so you can prepare for it beforehand.

What is generally included:

Airport transfers to and from your accommodation
All transportation during the trip (flights, boats & ground transport)
Accommodation (with breakfast generally included)
Experienced local guides

 

What is generally not included:

Your international flight from and to home
Travel insurance (mandatory)
Meals if not specified
Tips for guides and drivers

Our local gurus will make sure that everything will run smoothly, from the moment you arrive at the airport to the moment to say goodbye.
Before the beginning of your trip, you will be provided with all the necessary arrival instructions as well as on-site emergency contact details,
so that you will never feel alone!

SYNERGISING WITH THE LOCALS

We understand that unity is the key to communal growth, which is why our gurus always try to work directly with local communities and services supplied by people who belong to the local communities you explore. This means working with local drivers and guides and staying in a local homestay, boutique accommodation or luxury accommodation owned by local people.

Business as a force for good in the world

Our society and environment are calling out for a big change. Rather than waiting in a loop for governments to do something about it, we can be that change! This is why baboo.travel is working towards being certified as a B-Corp, meaning that we are now assessing our impacts on & contributions to the environment, our staff, our customers and the local communities we partner with, to ensure that we are doing no harm and benefiting all!
