Travel is often less about the places you go and more about the people you meet when you get there. It's the conversation you strike with locals sitting at the next table in the café, or the charming family who run the little winery you stumble across by accident, that stay with you long after you return home. Increasingly, touring companies are including these authentic exchanges in their itineraries. For example, APT Tours offers a 15-day trip to the Kimberley which includes a visit to the indigenous-owned Home Valley Station to discover how these properties are managed.
