We think that we have a pretty amazing tour concept which is centred around the guest experience. You’ve worked hard to have a holiday so here a a few ways we operate a little differently to ensure we provide you with a great travel experience.
Although we travel as a group, we really want to make sure that a YourTrip tour is all about you. We provide a great mix of included activities and time for you to explore on your own. With our Adventure for Anyone touring style, we provide suggestions of what you can do in each location. Before you travel we develop a personal day by day itinerary to match your travel style and desires. In addition, your tour director will be able to give you plenty of suggestions every day. We think that by getting to know what you want out of your holiday before you travel helps you get the best out of your travel experience.
All our tours are small enough that you’ll be able to get to know your fellow travellers well with a maximum of 18 guests on any of our Canada tours and just 8 on our Sri Lanka tours. Our small group size also means that we don’t overcrowd a place we visit such as a small town, attraction or event. This allows you to appreciate places for what they are, and not just for the masses of tourists. It also means our tour director has more time to get to know you and deliver you a tour that’s all about you.
There is much more to visiting a place than just being there – you need to get out and do things in the places you visit to really experience them. We include local experiences in each destination we visit in the base price of our tour packages. This means you’ll pay for less attractions and experiences during the tour as they are already included in your tour. Of course we still leave plenty of time for you to go and explore on your own while ensuring the essential must see and do’s are included. This saves you money and provides real value for money.
We visit all the must see destinations on the general tourist routes, but we are proud to branch away from the beaten track and explore smaller towns and regions where the masses tend to bypass. This allows you to get a different (and we think more holistic) perspective of the country you’re visiting and get up close and personal with local operators and attractions. You’ll have a much more unique story to tell when you get home form our tours, visiting places that others may not have already been. Learn about the destinations we visit with our destination guides and itineraries.
We make a big deal about the local perspectives we provide on our tours and consider the best way to do this is by having local people share their communities with you. What that means in practice is that in each town or city we visit we engage local tour operators, guides, attractions and restaurants to provide you with an authentic taste of the local area. You still have the ongoing assistance of your tour director throughout the tour however each time we do an activity its supported by a local from that area. We call these local experiences!
By using local operators we support the local economy in each place we visit. We don’t just drive a bus into town, get off the bus, take a few photos and use our own guide to tell you the story – we hire local operators to provide this local perspective. This ensures that the local communities we visit benefit from our presence. The value you get out of these local encounters is priceless. We also think its only fair that we give back to the communities that give us so much in return.
We have an optional addition to our tours that allows us to keep your friends and family updated on your travels – no need to write emails, we do it for you via our social media. If you opt in we will tag you in regular posts during each tour which will include photos and a short description of whats been happening that day. We share this on our Facebook wall allowing your friends and family to keep up to date with your movements. This is free on every trip, and all you need to do is ask us and we will include you.
