Recent case studies
A Day Tour in Cairo
Kathie M. was on a recent trip to Egypt and wanted to learn more about the Egyptian revolution. Our director Nicholas spoke with her and created an itinerary that incorporated meetings with the people as diverse as the Muslim Brotherhood, the youth movements involved in the Tahrir square protests, as well as a visit to a local neighbourhood to understand the dynamics that led to the revolution. Her guide for the day works with the New Yorker and other leading western newspapers and magazines.
“It was a great day with Hassan. It made what would have been an otherwise insular trip something pretty special. Meeting a family in their home was probably the highlight. I am definitely interested in this kind of travel again, so you may be hearing from me next year!”
A private tour of Georgia
Richard L. and his family were travelling in Georgia and wanted an introduction to the region’s politics and economy. The family had a specific interest in finance and the media. Political Tours’ Georgia Expert, Ketevan Tsikhelashvili, accompanied them for one day in Tbilisi where they met with the editor of a leading newspaper, toured a TV studio, and met with two former ministers and the head of a leading commercial bank.
“We had a fantastic time. The group organized by Ketevan was diverse and fascinating, not least Ketevan herself. Huge credit to her both for being a fantastic companion all day and for having the credibility and resourcefulness to organize a schedule of such quality. We got a great insight into the Georgia of today and tomorrow.”
