Current owner Michelle Barkersays that while the business has built happy and loyal customers there has been one key group that were looking for something a little different.
“We noticed agap between those that were looking for say a Contiki tour and those perhaps considering a river cruise. These people wanted to truly immerse themselves in the culture and day to day life of a destination to get the most from the trip and see life through a local’s eyes,” says Michelle.
Out of this came Jayes Travel Experiences, an end to end travel service that enables travelers to tap into a destinations’ true culture.
