This week's companies of the week take us to three European countries and three new companies, each led by tour operators currently using TrekkSoft booking software. We hope you enjoy the insight!
For our first feature company of the week, we travel to Rome, Italy to visit Wine & Food of Rome. Wine & Food of Rome is a food and wine tour company dedicated to showing the wonders of the undiscovered food world of Rome. Run by Evan Firestone this local company has become a hit with both locals and tourists, go on their highly ranked TripAdvisor page and you will spend the rest of the day reading and the excellent comments people have left about this company.
They have all kinds of tours for anyone. Guests can go rafting or canyoning on the Cetina River. For either activity you will be given all the equipment you need to make it a great tour. Professional licensed guides will take you to the best part of the rivers. “The natural harmony in and around this river is still untouched. Here you'll see nature in its best, beautiful lakes, vegetation cliffs, waterfalls, caves.” There are city and walking tours that guests can also partake in to learn more about the heritage and culture of Croatia. There are boat excursions, outdoor adventures and even multi-day tours. They can plan every aspect of your trip when you are in Croatia.
To cap of this week we head out to Portugal to visit My Tour Portugal. My Tour Portugal is a new kind of tour company, a company that prides itself on thinking outside of the box. One of the first lines on their page is “Want to escape the boring guide?” Its a tours and activities company that shys away from the conventional 10-15 tour group with a guide that takes you to the usual spots. They specialize in providing tours to a small group, avoiding all the other tourists, and as they put it a way to see “Portugal quietly.” All tours are given in Portuguese, and they offer some great prices, some of the best on the market.
Tours are mainly centered in the capital city of Lisbon. The folks at My Tour Portugal say its a tour for people who have little time in Portugal and do not want to lose what's best and most beautiful about Portugal. They take guests to all of the best places that Lisbon has to offer. It is a nine hour tour, and the afternoon portion takes place in Sintra “where everything is magical, fascinating and charming.” They also have tours for Porto. Porto is an historic city in Portugal. A city known for its museums, architecture, and not to mention cuisine. The four hour tour will have you feeling like a local after all the stuff you will be exposed to and what you will learn. And since they have quite possibly the best “Book Now” button I have ever seen it makes it more appealing to book one of their unique tours.
