Why we created Trekerie

For a long time we believed that planning trips on ourselves would be the best option. But as the number of options and reviews on the internet grew exponentially, we realized this way of planning our trips was critically time-consuming and the result was not guaranted anymore. Looking at the figures, planning a complex trip takes an average of 42 hours.

Then, when preparing a trip to Argentina, we enjoyed the service of an expert boutique agency specialized in making clients have a real experience of local treasures. The agency made the trip of our lives!

The agent was so knowledgeable, so attentive to our preferences and so flexible that, as a result, the full experience, planning included, was absolutely wonderful.

Since then, we carefully started selecting local boutique agencies we shared with friends who wanted to have unique experiences different that usually tourists have.

Those boutique agencies were real insiders, they carefully listen to what we were expecting, then create the perfect trip for us spending very little of your limited time. All about details! Today Trekerie wants to recreate this successful experience for discerning people with two priorities :

1- ensure the travel planning is an hassle-free and pleasant experience

2- make sure our travelers are in the right hands. Keeping always in mind the right hands are not the same for each traveler.

We know the trip creation process can have multiple shapes. Some travelers will invest more time, some will have very limited time, some will not have time at all. Our agents are prepared for that. We make sure the top agents we select have this flexibility as it is key to give birth to a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

Why we chose the name Trekerie

Trekerie was born out of the combination of two words that, together, symbolize our way to create unique trips.

We started with the word “Trek”, because we do not create the regular tourists’ trips. We make sure each of the trips we prepare will be plenty of surprises, adventure, delights, memories and encounters that will make the trip unique and authentic.

We decided to call ourselves “Trekerie” because we honor and replicate the handmade and highly knowledgeable way artisans work. The Founder comes from France. There, artisans hand-made bread and world famous croissants and baguettes in a Boulangerie, French pies and cakes in a Patisserie and cheeses in a Fromagerie and so on. At Trekerie, we are the artisans of unforgettable travel and we will tailor-made your trip with the best boutique travel agents.

We wish you a wonderful year traveling! Please keep in mind what John Steinbeck said “People don’t take trips, trips take people.” Enjoy!
