About Skyhook

Adventure is in our blood at Skyhook. Our booking platform is a space where intrepid travellers (Guests) come to book unique adventure trips with trusted local guides. That’s where you come in.

Every trip on our platform is led by a local expert guide (Host) who shares our values. We hand-pick our Hosts based on a strict set of criteria that meet our gold standard promise.

As our tribe of adventure-seekers grows, so does our need for partnering with the cream of the crop in local guides. As an approved Skyhook Host, we’ll help you shine even brighter.

Think you make the cut? Here’s what we’re looking for.

Who are Skyhook Hosts?

We’re setting the gold standard for service, safety, and sustainability in adventure travel. Hosts who meet Skyhook’s qualifying criteria and get approved to list on our platform reassure travellers that they can book with confidence.

Without a doubt, part of what makes Skyhook so appealing is the diverse community we partner with. No two Hosts are the same, in the same way that every trip on the platform is unique. That said, there are some common threads that tie our Hosts together:

🥇 Local, small-scale, independent tour guides, tour operators, or travel companies.

🥇 Engaging Hosts who know their stuff and focus on a specific local destination or activity.

🥇 Directly execute tours and don’t resell trips that belong to other operators.

🥇 First-hand knowledge of the destination and its local community, having spent years living and working there.

🥇 Stellar reputation within the local community, with past guests, as well as online.

🥇 Uphold and demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and positively impacting the local destination.

🥇 Hold the relevant operating licenses, registrations, certifications, and insurance that apply to the trips on offer.

🥇 Excellent customer service. Ready to respond daily to customer enquiries, including on weekends and holidays.

Ultimately, the purpose of this framework is to help our Hosts thrive. The goal is to have sold-out trips so you can do more of what you do best.
