Luxury Travel Reviews

Who are Our Man On The Ground?

Our Man On The Ground focuses on bringing you luxury travel reviews. We are a unique advisory service, providing independent travel reviews for people who are passionate about travel, food and culture. Our reviews vary from hotel reviews to ski chalets, spas to city highlights; what makes OMOTG different is our preference for 'positive reviews' that can help a fellow traveller in finding a hidden gem.

What do we mean by Independent Reviews?

Whether you’re looking for things to do in your chosen city, an independent hotel or luxury restaurant, OMOTG can be your independent travel advisor. We have a team of independent men and women on the ground locally based in towns and cities arond the world whose joint goal is to find those hidden and sometimes not so hidden restaurants, hotels, ski chalets, health spas or bars and pubs. We will also advise you on how best to get around a city with local travel tips, not to mention our special feature on city highlights

Our main aim is to help our users find quality ‘local’ information and our growing network of independent men and women on the ground make this possible. They play a vital role in giving you insider knowledge on cities. You could say it’s almost like having a local friend to show you around

We only focus on positive reviews and so if a place does not meet our criteria we don't write a bad review, we simply don't feature it.  As well as reviewing the more upmarket restaurants we also bring you some good value places we have discovered.  After all sometimes you just want to have a great pizza with some friends without paying an arm and a leg for it.  On the hotel front we tend to focus on the higher end of the market.

We do hope you will find our service a breath of fresh air in comparison to some of the other review websites out there, as we try to cut through all the clutter and bring you some of the great places we have visited and think you will like.

You will find a seal of approval on reviews carried out by our team of men and women on the ground in towns and cities around the world.  Our contributors are a mix of passionate locals who love to travel and explore, freelance writers and professional travel journalists.  All our contributors are food lovers and are sensitive to style and good taste.
