Difficult to reach them, they often don’t have a website or social media. Workshops with the Master will be the cherry on the top. They all stand behind unique accommodation, fantastic restaurants and vineyards.
We follow the motto “man is the master of his own destiny”, so choose wisely what you do for a living and you will never be tired”. For year our focus was and still is on the team that follows their passion-within there are philologists, cultural scientists, ethnographers, engineers, graphic designers and economists. During our trips, we cooperate with passionate guides and tour leaders. We take care of the climate conducive to establishing and strengthening relationships and building positive emotions. We successfully integrate teams in unusual and surprising settings. We motivate by participating in interesting meetings and journeys.
