People to People Connections
We believe that the best travel experiences can only be provided by local people. The Western travel industry needs that local flavour. Local knowledge, cuisine and culture makes the difference!
That’s why EastguidesWest is growing a global network of tourism professionals cooperating all over the world. We believe that professional connections are the foundation for fruitful working relations: both onsite & online.
Delivering your promise is the weakest link in the tourism value chain. Your paying guests are trusting the linking pins in the value chain: inbound tour operators and local guides. Make sure these valuable assets understand the promise you made to your customers!
We partner with many inbound tour operators and local suppliers. We cooperate with area managers, who value our connections and enjoy going the extra mile.

Tour Operator Testimonial
“Planning our next event with EastguidesWest”
In November 2019, we decided to organise an event for our tour guides in Samarkand. They had delivered excellent service throughout the year. We knew they would like to get some training and international tourism industry insights. We connected with EastguidesWest and asked what could be done in a short time. EastguidesWest did everything to accommodate a time frame within two months!
This was the very first time in Uzbekistan to hold a private company event for tour guides and tour operators. In cooperation with EastguidesWest, we achieved a big result. The Samarkand Guide Forum grew out of this and serves as knowledge sharing and team building tool.
The tour guides realised how important hands-on training from a guest perception is and, they realised that they have colleagues! That they don’t work alone, even if they don’t see each other often. Now they cooperate, share knowledge and socialise to enhance our tour products. This is truly a great eye opener for us and our guides, and we are planning our next event already together with EastguidesWest.
