The locals who lead the way.

At TrovaTrip, we work with trusted local Guides who know their destinations better than anyone else. These Guides know the local land and customs inside and out. They will teach you about their culture, provide you with great recommendations for spots to eat, make sure you get to your scheduled activities on time and help you safely navigate travel in a foreign land.

Why we keep it local.

There’s another reason to love local Guides. We believe that when we travel with more intention, the experience can become transformative — travel not only impacts our lives, but it also impacts local communities for years to come. Using local Guides helps keep money flowing into local economies, making life better for everyone.

Meet some of our top Guides.



Baddi, Iceland

“Another fun week on the road with a bunch of great folks. I love the way I've designed my life around the two different things I love to do professionally. Do what you love and be you — everyone else is already taken anyway.”



Aggy, Bali

“I love being a Guide because it allows me to learn more about my own culture’s history and also gives me a place where I can practice my English and learn to speak more confidently.”

Hygi, New Zealand

“Working as a Guide has taught me so much about our guests’ cultures and has taught me to be patient and calm, but also to act quickly when needed. I love showing off our home of Aotearoa, New Zealand.”

What Travelers have to say about our Guides.

"The trip was just perfection. Everything went so smooth and Emily and our guide Kris were perfect. Kris was so nice, he seriously spoiled us. The landscape and the people on the trip were wonderful. I have just booked the same trip for next year."

"Tati the tour guide made the whole experience. Her expertise was invaluable to the group. She was always there to translate and answer all questions about wildlife, geography, politics, culture and more. She was a true ambassador for Costa Rica."
