Call to Tour Operators

Text directed to Tour Operators:

In the selfie generation where the authentic experience is the most that money can buy, our Discovery Tours aim to create a new form of tourism experience that is both priceless and addictive by forming real and sustained bonds between tourists and the local people in tourism destinations.

In Summers 2018 and 2019 we will be running prototypes of our Discovery Tours in Senegal and Mallorca. A rich consortium of partners on the ground and global partners are fusing know-how, learning instruments and unparalleled access to mould the Discovery Tours as recipes for authentic local discovery and enriching personal development as well as catalysts for local, sustainable and regenerative growth.

If you are a tour operator, we also want to partner with you. We want to offer our Discovery Tour to your clients so that we can reach the diversity of socio-economic, cultural, age and leisure preference segments of the tourism market. Likewise, our Discovery Tour will expand and diversify your business offering. Together we can contribute to shaping the tourism sector; stimulating a closer, more meaningful and impactful relationship with destinations everywhere.

Start a conversation with us today by telling us about yourself, and we look forward to speaking!

We have “go ahead” in Senegal!

IMG_0218We are pleased to announce our partnership with REDES (Senegal). We have agreed to launch a new concept of tourism that we call “Active Leisure”. It will be offered in the form of  “Discovery Tours”. We will start to organize them by the mid of 2018. We are very excited about this partnership.

Ousmane Pame, President of REDES, said in a statement, “”We believe that it is possible to reverse the current ecological and socio-economic trends in tourism if the right community dynamics are established. One way to implement those community transformative processes and changes is through a vigorous comprehensive partnership within and between local communities and the tourism sector”.

Alex Plessl, Co-Director of DNA! said, “We are thrilled to be making this first step towards DNA! Discovery Tours and are excited about the prototyping we will be doing in Senegal with our experienced partners on the ground. Most importantly, we feel confident that deep knowledge and local connections of REDES will ensure that DNA! Discovery Tourists experience truly enriching and memorable moments right from the very first tour”. This will help local Communitties of Social “Teampreneurs” all around the world to recognize and honor their local resources, maximize their value by handeling them in a regenerative way and use them in the most efficient and effective manner thanks to the channels that the most advanced technologies of the 21st Century provide to Open Source collaborative networks.
