Dear Agency Partners,
Over the last months, we have tried to give voice to the voiceless in Peru and Colombia. We hosted two virtual ride-along experiences for participants to gain a first-hand look at the humanitarian work taking place around Cartagena. Across the planet, we are being challenged to do better. How do we keep the new connections we have made as alive and viable three months from now as they are today?
The Big Five team has access to bright and talented people, personalities who are eager to share stories of their country’s own struggles with movements, either through first-hand encounters or from the point of view of respected historians. Showing yet another side to the power of tourism, we share these amazing people, who clients can meet while in country. They are the Faces of Five.
