Who are we?

Everyone,  meet NotInTheGuidBooks.com. We are learning holiday specialists. We don’t do contrived. We don’t do manufactured excursions. We don’t do the tourist trail. Instead, we offer the inspirational, the magnificent, the innovative.

Quite simply, our holidays last a lifetime.

From PADI scuba diving trips to luxury jewellery making courses. Perfume making to horse riding whilst wine tasting. Whatever your passion, we have a holiday course to inspire you.

It all started back in 2006 when our founder, Vanessa Lenssen took a kite surf holiday in Tarifa on the glorious Costa de la Luz in Spain. After a windswept day of kite surfing and being rescued after flying out to sea without a board, the thought occurred to Vanessa that there might just be other people out there who would be equally as excited by the idea of learning a new skill on holiday. Several years on and GoLearnTo.com are the leading learning holiday specialists with holidays courses covering everything from cocktail making to gladiator fighting.
