Jay and Zee are ready for a tour. So what will it be a Guided Tours/ Guided Small Group/ Group Travel/ Private Driver/ Self Drive Tour? Listen and hear which one is best for you.
First thing I would do is see who goes where? You don’t want to pick a South African Safari when you plan on going Ireland. So now you have narrowed down where you want to go and what tour companies go there. Tours can be pricey. You want to go with a reputable tour company. Of course you can go on line and find who has the best rating etc. I however recommend that you talk to people that may have used that tour company. Word of mouth goes a long way. If you can use a travel agent. Travel agents know which tour companies would be the best to suit your needs. They are looking out for your interest….they want to make sure you have a great time. Because if you come back and had a great time you will use that TA again and again and recommend your friends.
But if you are bound and determined to do it yourself, remember the word of mouth first. Then you can go on line and see all of the tours available in the area you are looking into. Research several different companies for that region. Some tour companies go all over the world. Take your time do your homework…
Make sure of what the company is suppling to you. Are they supplying air/train/transfers/hotel pickup drop off/tickets to the sites to see/food inclusions and any events. Luggage handling….Do they have a cancellation policy…insurance inclusion for the trip…
One thing people always forget to ask is about the Tour buses. Are they airconditioned…do you have wifi capabilities on the bus. Are there facilities on the bus.
Again….a travel agent can help you with your ideal tour.
