Context Travel Tours

Our global cities have long been hubs for ideas, art, science, commerce, culture, social development and more. But the frenetic urbanization of recent decades is jeopardizing their historical function as melting pots of culture and diversity. As the world becomes more populated, and urban areas more dense, cities become dehumanized—prone to violence, inequality, discrimination. Sustainable travel company, Context Travel, looks to help by turning informed, impassioned travelers into empowered cultural advocates. Context offers guided tours for curious travelers in 50 cities around the world, with a focus on immersive cultural and educational experiences. Their walking tours are led by scholars and experts in their respective fields, including local architects, art historians, ecologists, chefs, and more. These natural teachers and storytellers guide small and private tours around some of the most beautiful and culturally-rich destinations in the world. By visiting local small businesses and eating authentic foods, travelers get exposed to the living fabric of a place. And as certified B Corp, Context is dedicated to supporting local philanthropic projects and running a socially-minded business—by treading lightly on the places they operate and contributing to the well-being of the cities they travel. Explore deeper. Experience more.
