Travel Experience

Backstreet Academy is a peer to peer travel platfrom for the most amazing experiences anywhere. Connecting with people when you travel is one of life’s greatest experiences. Even better when you happen to meet someone with similar interests, or someone really devoted to his craft, like local fisherman who can show you his traditional fishing techniques or a chef who can teach you secret native cooking techniques and introduce you to the flavours of the land. Language barriers and travel schedules make it almost impossible, but it doesn’t have to be. With Backstreet Academy, we make it as easy as a click to experience the best, everywhere.

Responsibility

We bring back the lost lustre of travel in the age of mass tourism. We bring back the lost human connection that we lost in our rush to see each and every attraction. We bring back the curiosity in traditions, skills and culture and not just in the form of looking, but by having an intimate, hands-on experience with a master of his craft. Travel different, travel the backstreets of the world and experience its wonders like never before. Sit down with a master, take time to understand how things are made and feel like an apprentice learning the great arts exactly like how it used to be in the Renaissance Age. Appreciate the wonders of the world, hands-on.

Business Case

Backstreet Academy is also a social enterprise dedicated to impact. We work with many NGOs and disadvantaged communities to help them create a tour experience at Backstreet Academy, helping them to access the tourism market monopolized by tour agents, building better livelihoods and dignity through providing them with education, training, income and respect. We do this through our special program where these individuals are classified as BA Hosts (Backstreet Academy Host). Through this program we allocate facilitators who will act as the translators for a BA Host booking, as most BA hosts cannot converse in English and we do not want language barriers limiting their ability to accesss the tourism market.
