Experiential Travel

What is Experiential Travel?

Recently there has been an increase in the global demand for a style of travel that is enriched at a much deeper and emotional level. Experiential travel is about discovering authenticity – the tastes, sounds, smells and touches of a destination are as important as the sights. All of the senses combine to form a travel memory that becomes more meaningful to you. 

With experiential travel we seek to engage all of our senses, and enjoy dynamic participation with locals and the culture of today. Ironically, the overwhelming amount of information on the internet now makes it harder to get the real, authentic, experiences people are craving.

Travel like you mean it

Make your travel worth it in every possible way. Build priceless long-lasting memories and compelling stories that come naturally because of the cultural exchange that takes place when people from different cultures meet and share their worldviews.

Wandering through museums is a passive experience where you take in the culture of a bygone era. Experiential travel is about taking an active role in your vacation and engaging all of our senses by enjoying dynamic participation with locals and the culture of today.

Experiential travel will have you coming back changed, inspired, and more complex, holding on to something that no tangible souvenir can ever replace.

A day in the Life

Dive deeper into what it truly means to be an Italian, a Malaysian, a Peruvian, a Brazilian, an American and so on. Capture these moments with your soul and not just with your digital camera. Experiential travel is about finding the local’s perspective, the true culture (not what the local’s think tourists are interested in).

Going behind-the-scenes and immersing yourself in experiences is the most fun way to travel as you get to see the coolest things that are easily missed without insider knowledge.

You should travel to stimulate your mind and stretch your thinking, build memories and share them with loved ones. Meet new people and make new friends, and expand your cultural footprint across the world. The more people and cultures you become familiar with, the more informed, intelligent, and understanding you become.

do what the locals do

You often hear “go where the locals go,” or “do what the locals do,” but unless you know a local this is a lot harder than it seems. Experiential travel allows you to get a leg-up on the logistics and gain insights from locals that you cannot get any other way.

With experiential travel you can join a local for a day or afternoon of engaging and active fun. The interaction with a local provides great and realistic guidance on how to visit their city. 

When you travel with a local it’s so much easier to stumble upon events and ceremonies in towns and villages off the beaten path bringing surprise and additional unexpected excitement making you feel you are experiencing a culture from the front row.

“VoomaGo has ruined me, all further trips will be compared to this Italy vacation and I doubt they will measure up. I will carry the memory of the warm and welcoming hearts of the Italian families that I was privileged to meet. To get to know the culture and history of Italy was wonderful. To truly get to know its people was the dream I couldn't have dreamt.”
