The Context vision is to create an atmosphere—a context, if you will—for curious travelers to engage with local experts; to give them access to places and cultures that might otherwise remain out of sight to the casual visitor; to invite them off the tourist track and into the real life of the people, history, and culture that makes these cultural capitals amazing. In other words, to travel deeper. Deep travel helps build cultural bridges that foster tolerance and understanding. But it doesn’t just change travelers. It changes places, too.
