Who we are:

Context is a mission-driven organization at the intersection of travel and education. We believe in a global community built on mutual understanding. Our team is a close-knit group of travel-obsessed foodies and pet-lovers who all share a passion for lifelong learning. Pre-covid we were Context Travel, a premier walking tour company with PhD-level guides in over 80 cities globally. In March 2020, we pivoted with resounding success; we empowered our network of scholars to bring their curated content online so that they could continue to make a living off of their knowledge and expertise. 

As the world re-opens for travel, we’re charging ahead to build a curated marketplace fueled by both our in-person and online learning experiences.  We’re on a mission to bring context to our world by inspiring learning as a lifestyle -- are you with us?
