Bastien Pailloux – Founder:
“In 2014 I went to live and work in Mexico. When I had just arrived in the country, the Mexicans wanted to show me their country, sometimes in remote and non-touristic regions. They really wanted me to love their country the way they loved it. Often the only “tourist” among the Mexicans, I took part in parties and did activities that still today I do not find on the guides… Result: I loved it!
In 2015, I leave for India, the situation was the same and I (re)discovered with a new eye a country I already knew. By leaving the tourist circuits to follow the advice of the Indians, I understood better their culture, their religion and caught the richness of this country… It transformed me.
I understood that whatever the country, the local inhabitants love their country and want to make discover it. They are ready to recommend places outside the tourist circuits… And I enjoyed my travels much more.
In 2016, just returned to France, Mexicans and Indians visiting Paris ask me for advice on activities to do, places to visit… I loved making them a personalized program of places that I enjoy.
I was not the only one who wanted to leave the tourist circuits, to want to discover the countries differently. But we all need someone to reassure us and advise us on our journey. We want to make sure we enjoy our trip.”
