We Do The Research – So You Don’t Have To
Welcome! The Loftus Guides helps travelers by crafting destination guides, articles and e-books that are focused on experiential travel.
The Loftus Guides is here to help you make the most of your trip – to destinations both popular and a bit off-the-beaten-path.
We’re dedicated to bringing you helpful tips and great content on many of the world’s best travel destinations. We use our resources to create lists and posts for you that are practical, inspiring and interactive. Have a question? Get in touch and let us know! Interested in a destination or attraction we haven’t yet covered? We’d love to hear from you!
But just what does “Experiential travel” even mean?
It’s become such a ‘buzzword’ in the travel business that it has entered the domain of over-use! Here’s what it means to us: this is the sort of travel for those who not only want to visit the top 10 attractions in a place and take pictures – but to really experience the daily life, the culture, the history of a place. To immerse yourself in a destination, and return home feeling like you’ve really gotten to know a people, their culture, traditions and lifestyle – up-close and personal.

Because of its climate, the Niagara region also has many orchards, famous for their soft fruit production and numerous summer fruit festivals. Apple orchards at the ready has also led to a new development: cider production.

Next Up? Sites Coming Soon
Our next sites to launch this year will be “Secrets of Croatia” followed by “Secrets of Bordeaux” sometimes – most deservedly – referred to as “The Little Paris” (you’ll find out why) and “Secrets of Languedoc”. The last of these is an area of southwestern France also known as “the other Provence”, another very apt nickname. There are so many ‘hidden’ gems to share with you, for all of these truly wonderful destinations- some off the beaten track and others simply extraordinary.
