What is our number one tip before you book a tour with a tour company? Call the company!
We receive probably 95% of our bookings via the Internet without ever having spoken to the traveler. In many cases, we have never even emailed with the individual.
And to be honest, that works for us!
But if we had to distill our 22 years of wisdom into one most important tip, it would be this: Call us first before you book or even just when you are considering traveling. Here is why:
- Signing up for a tour is a big decision, not only in terms of time and money. Just as important, you will be spending 5, 7, or more days with a group of people. Isn’t it worth talking to the company putting together that group to see what sort of culture it has?
- Calling us allows us to get to know you. Yes, we’ll send you an Information Form before your trip but a phone call will allow you to tell us about your bum knee that sometimes acts up or your dietary restrictions or needs.
- You might just change your mind about what trip you want to do! Let’s say you are ready to book our Dolomites Biking & E-Biking Adventure but then call us, talk to one of the four of us in Zephyr’s office, and realize you might actually be a better fit on the Spain Biking, E-Biking, & Wine Adventure later that year. It could be a very worthwhile five-minute phone call.
So even if you do not have any questions, consider giving us a call. And if you are not yet decided on a tour or not yet decided on a tour company, definitely give us a call!888-758-8687
