About Gary Bartelings
Born in Africa, Gary has had travel in his blood from his early years. During his childhood he used to travel from his native Holland with his parents to many traditional European summer holiday destinations. As he grew up, undertaking travel by bike and car was the start of his growing passion of seeing the world, its sights and meet its people.
During the course of his career in travel companies (including Qantas, APT and Captain’s Choice) in the Netherlands, Germany, the UK and Australia he developed his skills and creativity in developing interesting and exciting itineraries for travellers of all nationalities. Eventually he became a recognised expert in touring by private jet, which he not only curated but in many cases led groups around the world visiting the African Continent, Asia and many other places. Now living in the UK he is delighted to have the opportunity to showcase visitors the often unknown delights of his adopted home country.
