Why travel with Altai ?


In each Altai destination, our staff is mainly composed of native people, or foreign expats who has been living there for many years. Some of us are or have been professional guides, others are outdoor activities specialists. In the end, we are all driven by the same desire to share our passion with travellers.  We spend much time on the ground to improve and deepen our knowledge about each destination. The selection of our partners is made carefully, according to their professionalism and expertise. It is never based on price considerations. Our guides are carefully recruited and cherry-picked; we train them regularly during field trainings in our destinations or in France. Thanks to Altai Campus and to this training program, our guides are all qualified to lead nature and adventure travels. Beyond the technical knowledge necessary for their activity, they all follow a specific training in First Aid and Security. Following these training courses, they are certified Altai Guides, the only label that allows them to lead your travel.

If we consider the classical and historical process of tourism; usually, when a customer wishes to go with an organized tour, he contacts first a tour operator in his own country, which, on its turn contacts a local incoming agency. Altaï Base Camp has the great advantage to undertake both responsibilities of travel organization and sale; with no additional margin applied by an eventual go-between. Thus, when you choose to trust us, you benefit from the very best possible value. Thanks to our long-lasting presence in each destinations, and trough the trustful relations we have built over time; we have now access to attractive prices, which allows us to provide you with attractive offers too. As a consequence, we can ensure competitiveness while compensating well our guides, drivers and employees, so they remain committed and loyal to us and strengthen our experience on the ground.
