Hi, my name is William Rutta and I am 42 years married and have 3 children. I am passionate about traveling and giving back to my community. Therefore I started my own organization 11 years ago that is focused on Community Based Tourism to support local families. We work with 11 different local families. My goal is to let you experience our culture and the other way around. Hope to see you as my guest one day!
