Europe Trip Leader

Tomo Petek

With a degree in economics and tourism, Tomaz “Tomo” Petek created a vagabond lifestyle, traveling to different continents. 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, and has become a certified yoga teacher.

Client Testimonials

Tomo's deep knowledge and affection for Slovenia came through strongly; his outdoor knowledge and skills ensured that participants engaged safely in activities appropriate for their skill, fitness, and interest levels. His engaging personality and knowledge of history and politics strongly enhanced participants' experience, and allowed serious discussions of recent and current events when participants wished to initiate them.
