Mr. Waleed Al-Khamis started Baitalkhairan to solve his own travel challenges. As he is from Kuwait, he wanted to explore number of new international destinations each year. Planning a complex international itinerary using online sites would take him forever. Using a traditional travel agency will not help either, because the agents were usually generalists without expert knowledge of chosen right destinations and spots.
Mr. Waleed did find several travel specialists with expert destination knowledge and insider access to incredible experiences. They typically worked in small boutique companies with few employees. When Waleed used these exceptional specialists, he got exceptional vacations.
In the process, he identified a pressing need for a one-stop online service that could reliably match discerning travelers with proven, pre-qualified specialists in specific fields of travel. And thus, Baitalkhairan was born. As well as a unique ‘matchmaking’ system linking travelers with top planning specialists, Mr. Waleed designed a series of rigorous standards and systems to ensure that only the best companies ever make it onto Baitalkhairan database.
Every agent is personally interviewed and must demonstrate exceptional destination knowledge and local contacts before they can join Baitalkhairan network. They must also maintain a minimum rating of 4.25 out of 5 stars in their reviews from Baitalkhairan travelers.

He usually pull out next year's public holiday calendar and try to maximise His trip days and map out a high level plan of where he would try to go.

From being a tourist to being able to travel more adventure trips, one thing has remained constant – He is the happiest when he is travelling - discovering the world and himself one step at a time.
His experiences have been amazing, surreal, and eye opening but also at times tiring and challenging. You learn to appreciate it all. Some of his key lessons learned:
