Res Tech/Booking platformBookeohttps://americatourcompany.comsales@bookeo.comWe have been happy with Bookeo for over a year. Our goal was not to pass extra fees to our guests and Bookeo is a flat monthly rate. We compared that total cost of a percentage model to the flat rate and the flat rate has always been much less expensive. Their customer service is via email but they always respond very quickly and include screen shots if needed. For our unique needs, we have always been able to execute our plans using this service.America Tour CompanyAlan Rusthttp://www.bookeo.comalan@americatourcompany.comUnited States (US)

Digital MarketingDorene Whartonhttps://www.impulsetravel.codorene@travellifex.comI met Dorene though Travel Massive on 2015. We started off with an exchange of tours for some video content and some copywriting for our site. From then, our relationship kept growing and we have worked on several project since then. On 2017 we did a whole rebranding and that entailed developing content strategies, copywriting and digital marketing. The results of the transition were stunning. It was not only about how customers perceive our brand, but also how me and my team generated more ownership and a personal connection with the purpose of our company. Dorene was key on this process. After that, she we have done a couple other projects related to strategic marketing and communications. She has become a good friend over the years working together and also a mentor on my path as a travel entrepreneur. I really recommend her both as a professional and as a person.

BookTourism Marketing Agency, Chris Torres, the book How to turn your online Lookers into Bookershttps://tatrabis.mdhello@tourismmarketing.agencyThe book Lookers into Bookers initially became a textbook for us, but now it is a manual, according to which we follow and do real things in the field of digital marketing. Exactly according to the instructions from the book, we started the promotion of our tours and activities on Facebook. Our greatest success was the compilation of a marketing strategy and the elaboration of a specific content calendar for the following month. But the biggest benefit of the book is that it changed the thinking of our company. We are no longer just a tour operator, we are also starting to be a Media company, about which the whole book is about.TatrabisEmilian Dzugashttps://tourismmarketing.agency/emilian.dzugas@tatrabis.mdMoldova

Online Course (Paid)How to Start a Tour Business (TheTripSchool)https://www.tourpreneur.comI have often said on the podcast that you can't go to school to learn how to build a tour business. I now believe the How To Start a Tour Business 3 week online course designed and taught by Mitch Batch and Alan Armijo has proved me wrong. I signed up to this course (and yes I paid full price) because I have a great idea for tour business but unsure if it has legs. Also as the host of Tourpreneur I am always looking to learn more about the process of building a tour from idea to execution. This course was intense, several hours a day online for 3 weeks but the payoff is well worth the time and money invested. They teach topics such as how to build and design your tour, the business of tour operating, how to market your tour, how to brand it and much more. I especially enjoyed how Mitch and Alan brought in other tour operators to talk to us students through real-life situations. There was no sugar coating here, the speakers were all brutally honest about the struggles they have faced in getting off the ground and sustaining their tour businesses. Many of you know that I have zero tolerance for 'empty suits' and savvy information marketeers with their funnels and promises of riches. So I was smiling when in the 10th minute of module 1, Mitch warned us that 'if you are in this for the money, find a new job. This had better be a passion play or this is going to fizzle.' Honest and authentic. I rarely endorse courses and products so when I do, you know it is the real deal.TourpreneurShane Whaleyhttps://thetripschool.com/tourbusiness/shane@tourpreneur.comUnited States (US)

Tour Guide TrainingTripSchoolhttps://Greatfallstravel.comI stumbled upon TripSchool when another destination training course cancelled and left me high and dry. My Win! TripSchool's destination trainings are comprehensive, packed with information, logistics and hands on learning opportunities with a strong focus on storytelling. The connections I have made with vendors, attractions, lodging and transportation have translated into increased profit for my TO business. The Company/Founders- TripSchool founders Mitch Bach and Alan Armijo are not new faces to the tourism industry. With a combined 40 years in the industry, they have experience and worked in multiple facets of the tour business including marketing, itinerary building, business development, tour guide resource publishing, tour management/guiding and destination training. When selecting a course I want to see relevant experience of those developing and teaching the course. TripSchool hits the mark as both Mitch and Alan are active and current tour guides, tour managers and business developers. This is important to me as they have the insider view to the industry, being active participants in the process of daily logistics and touring. In short they know and understand current industry and industry trends from the inside out. The Course- I have taken a number of courses with TripSchool both in person and virtual courses. The most recent class, the Start a Tour Company: Intensive Online Workshop, with an emphasis on Intense, was a challenging dive into creating and honing a tour business, conducted via Zoom. Classes are recorded and uploaded to the resource portal along with all relevant course material and contact information for presenters. As with all TripSchool courses, you have immediate access to the Facebook page for the particular class. The custom Facebook page provides space for participants to connect, share their work and ideas, ask questions, share resources, build community and receive feedback from course mates and from Mitch and Alan. The format of the class was 5 days a week 2-3 hours a day for 3 weeks (15 sessions). There were activities/assignments for each day ideally leading up to the final creation of our individual travel product. Businesses developed in our class varied from Garden tours to Coffee tours and everything in between. The course took us through logo design, marketing, branding, the monumental task of obtaining a domain name, website creating, legal, licensing and the launch of our tourism product. Most every class session hosted at least one and sometimes more, leading travel industry professionals relevant to the current topic. Guests included business and marketing development professionals, tour operators, travel industry web developers, legal/insurance professionals and travel bloggers. As a participant we were able to ask questions, receive feedback about ideas and were provided contact information for these professionals as future resources. We also received at least one private session with Mitch and Alan to discuss our business and receive candid feedback. The outcome- While I have already been operating tours and a tour operator business for a number of years, this course was valuable in so many ways. I used this course to develop an additional niche tour product soon to be launched in the Washington, DC market. Skills learned in the course, in particular marketing, branding and online booking to my current company. With an undigestible amount of information available on the web, this course provided actionable business development steps specific to our tourism products and really helped to fast track and identify both strong and pain points in our product.Great Falls TravelSean Granthttps://thetripschool.comsean@greatfallstravel.comUnited States (US)

Online Course (Paid)The Trip Schoolhttps://unexpectedtravel.comTo say that being part of "Start A Tour Business" with The Trip School was fabulous is an absolute understatement! Mitch and Alan really delivered the in depth material professionally and with tremendous humor, keeping everyone engaged and interested. Mitch and Alan are dynamic presenters and set the bar high. They are also straight shooters, and manage to encourage you to take serious action, though still being funny, so that it's never taken offensively. They both poured their hearts, soul, time, energy and detail into each aspect of this program and it showed! It was refreshing to pay for a class where you were given everything you need to start your own business and not be up sold to another level. I had been in Real Estate Investing in the past and they never quite gave you the entire enchilada with their expensive trainings, which was beyond frustrating. This wasn't like that at all. They gave you everything promised and much, much more. The workbooks with tough questions to answer are so valuable! I highly recommend ANYTHING with Mitch and Alan! You won't regret it!Unexpected TravelKimberley Indovinahttps://thetripschool.com/tourbusiness/Contact@UnexpectedTravel.comUnited States (US)
