And it’s not just adventure travel. With the explosion of foodie events there are an ever-growing set of opportunities to experience the local cuisine and wine of the area whether as a group or on a private journey. Go behind the scenes of the top museums in Europe with guided tours from art history PhDs who provide access and insights on the very best art in the world. See Sicily, Norway, or Scotland through the eyes of the very best local boutique tour operators who provide truly off-the-beaten track experiences and avoid the mass tourism mobs of the big cities.
We also know the best resorts in the world if you want to dig your toes in the sand. Fly to private islands to your separate cabana; scuba dive off a luxury spa ship that allows your non-diving spouse or partner to relax the day away; or take a small ship cruise in the Indonesian archipelago with only 200 fellow passengers to islands the giant ships could never visit.
With so many options, how does one narrow down the choices? DragonSlayer is a powerful app and platform that utilizes the very latest technology to help you not only understand how *you* like to travel but learns about your interests in order to help you come up with a short list (bucket list!). Netflix makes recommendations for movies you may like, we make smart recommendations for travel experiences you may like.
I had a great experience with a tour operator. Why don't I simply use them for future travel?
Most likely they are one of our partners and we love them too. But just as you wouldn’t use an expert fishing guide as a museum guide, tour operators also have specialties. DragonSlayer recommends the local experts wherever possible. Often, it is an in-country boutique tour operator who has unparalleled local knowledge. We have many of those in our system as well. Also, we will take care of every aspect of your travel experience including the tour but also air, transfers, additional days before or after the tour, hotels, restaurant recommendations, and activities.
Why do I need DragonSlayer, I have a travel agent?
Please keep them, we understand that over time, a good travel advisor is worth their weight in gold. Simply use DragonSlayer to help with SAFE-T insights and as a tool to decide where you may choose to travel next.
What makes DragonSlayer different from tour operators such as Abercrombie & Kent or Tauck?
A&K and Tauck are DragonSlayer partners just like scores of other tour operators, activity providers, charter companies, villa consolidators, yacht charters, and local boutique tour operators. We are an aggregator of travel experience providers as well as the curator of our own Authentic DragonSlayer trips.
Can I use DragonSlayer for business travel?
Absolutely. You have the option to have a separate business profile that allows us to curate special travel requests when you are on a business trip. Let us know when/where you are traveling and we will set you up with a hotel that caters to your personal preferences, not simply corporate chain hotels. We can help identify preferred restaurants and other activities that reflect your personal tastes. DragonSlayer learns your preferences and matches you with establishments that will make your trip a bespoke experience. And don’t forget, if your spouse joins you for an extended weekend, we will make smart recommendations and coordinate all the details.
What is your philosophy of travel?
We believe that travel is to be personalized and inspirational delivered by knowledgeable experts whether they are our Travel Slayers or your local guides. The world is a big place and time is precious. Make the best use of your travel time with DragonSlayer.
