Dear honorable partner
We are aware that our success depends on your local knowhow and on our mutual exceptional relationship. In an era of nonstop digitalization, only companies that can offer an exclusive yet intimate product to its clients, and identify themselves with it, will survive. There is a saying that fine feathers make a fine bird, or understood another way, that the people with whom, and places where you spend your holidays reflect your character. But most of all it is the place we grow up which forms us and our ideals. We have been creating new experiences for more than 30 years. That is 30 years of excellent service to our clients and an honest belief in our mantra: “Only those who really experience something can also understand it.” This is also the reason we often push your boundaries, why we proudly call our clients Adventure Hunters and look for experiences that open minds and last in memory for a lifetime. We strive to be unique - this is a never-ending process. We think ahead, as we always want to be a step ahead.
LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF
After finishing my studies at the medical faculty of Comenius University and the completion of my residency, I was present at the first three successful heart transplant surgeries in Slovakia. Despite this early success in medicine, my heart was stolen by travel. I map this choice back to my time as a student participating in Czechoslovakia’s “velvet” revolution, when I literally helped to cut the barbed wire to freedom, and afterwards travelled to every continent, every country, and every part of the world. I wanted to share this spirit with others. Two notable adventurers I supported were the first Slovak women to reach both the North and South Poles, these epic journeys were also undertaken with my guidance. 2011 was also memorable, that year we won the Ernst & Young “ Entrepreneur of the Year” competition, and in 2012 the BUBO brand entered hall of fame in Monte Carlo. While I am a father of three, I also consider every BUBO tour leader one of my own. This is reflected by the establishment of the BUBO Travel academy in 2003, it is the program we created to train and educate our staff. However, I want this job to remain a hobby, so that a passion for travel and an understanding new cultures remains a crucial part of the BUBO experience for both my leaders and our clients. Again, I hope that our cooperation will be successful for both sides and that “Adventure Hunting” will be in your DNA as well. I believe that we are only at the beginning of our journey, and that our mutual business will grow continually.
