Tomo Petek

With a degree in economics and tourism, Tomaz “Tomo” Petek created a vagabond lifestyle traveling to different continents and exploring new cultures. From Italy to India, Morocco to Belize, he immersed himself in new environments, and picked up a few languages along the way (he’s fluent in four, to be precise). Yet after so much time away from his home country of Slovenia, he decided to return and has been guiding trips ever since. “My wish came true—I live in a country with a lot of natural beauty and I have one of the best jobs in the world,” he says. When not leading trips, Tomo enjoys climbing, cycling, and photography.

Tomo has a warmth and enthusiasm that is hard not to be drawn in to. He added so much to our trip with it, as well as with his deep historical knowledge and our yoga breaks!
