A quick summary of the kind of things I have been involved with through my life so far.
Viaventure Central AmericaFounded Mar 2001
I started Viaventure Central America in 2002 with James Goller from a grotty bedsit in Antigua, Guatemala with straw mattresses and a noisey cockrel outside. We grew it with Beat Brunschwiler into a leader of tailor-made travel in the region working closely with staff and suppliers to raise the level of service, authentic products and safe, quality opertions. Always investing in our systems, technology and people Viaventure has grown to operate almost all of Central America and we continue to be one of the most highly respected and valued DMC / Tour Operators in the region.Read More
