This week we learn how to kiteboard with South Florida Kiteboarding, take a photo with Montreal Photo Walking Tours, and the best places to view the Running of the Bulls with the PamplonaMan.
South Florida Kiteboarding is a watersports company located in the Miami-Dade and Broward areas of Florida. South Florida Kiteboarding specializes in kiteboarding lessons, a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, and gymnastics into one extreme sport. Their mission is to safely teach their guests to kiteboard and ride upwind in the least amount of time as possible. This is mission is accomplished by some of the best guides the state of Florida has to offer. Guides who are IKO or PASA certified, with extensive training in kiteboarding instruction, not to mention they speak English, Spanish and French so they are ready to assist anyone.
South Florida Kiteboarding offer different packages. The packages are arranged by how much time the guest desires and their skill level. They offer everything from shorter lessons that offer guest a quick initiation into the sport and the teachings of basic skills, to a package called Unleashed which is a 15 package of kiteboarding instruction and coaching. Beginner or advanced South Florida Kiteboarding is constantly looking for new ways to make the lessons fun and safe. They spend the most money out of any Florida school on boat assisted support system to get guests into the best waters for lessons.
The idea is to make sure the guests feels safe, including the booking process. South Florida Kiteboarding features TrekkSoft’s booking system. This allows guest to stay on their website and book a lesson without any third party interference. Weather plays a major role in kiteboarding and unfortunately sometimes there are cancellations. However, with their booking system South Florida Kiteboarding can offer refunds right away without going through a long stretched-out process. Next time you find yourself in Miami, head over to one of their two locations and book yourself a lesson. You won't regret it!
Next we head up north to take a look at Montreal Photo Walking Tours in Canada. Montreal Photo Walking Tours is an activity company that provides walking tours in the heart of Montreal. They also offer cooking lessons. Unique activities offered by one company allows them to attract different types of customers and all kinds of people. The independent traveller who just wants to go for a walk and take pictures of the Montreal skyline can book a tour. The family that wants to spend a day together can make a booking. The couple who want to go on a date learning how to cook a delicacy can book a cooking class. The company looking for a team building activity can do a corporate tour together.
Photo walking tours are for a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 12 people. They offer four different photo walking tours, The Montreal Sunrise, The Old Montreal and Chinatown, Montreal Mount Royal and my personal favorite Montreal Underground and Olympic Stadium tour. These tours can be customized if you want a private tour for you and your group. Also they have customized baking classes, where you and a group learn to bake Austrian bread. So whether you are by yourself or with your corporate group, Montreal Photo Walking Tours has something for you to do.
The Running of the Bulls and The San Fermin Festival in Pamplona are world famous activities that attract guests from all over the world. The yearly ritual has even paved the way for similar running of the bull festivals in other cities in Spain, Portugal and Mexico. Every year guests gather in Pamplona to witness the festival and the spectacle that is running of the bulls. Michael Murphy, owner of this company and self proclaimed PamplonaMan, is determined to make sure all guests have a good time during the festival. Along with his partner Sofia, they have spent the last eight years providing the best service to guests who want to witness the event. They offer lodgings, balconies and seats to attend the bullfights. The lodgings and balconies are in prime locations to provide an optimal view of the event.
The San Fermin Festival 2015 will take place from July 6- 14. It starts with the opening ceremony "chupinazo" and ends with a candle light closing ceremony. The festival is not just about running of the bulls: “It's 9 days and nights of non-stop fiesta incorporating a multitude of free family events and fairs, such as traditional basque dancing and music, basque cultural sports, international firework competitions each night, live concerts... so much more for all your family and friends to enjoy.” With so much demand, the lodging and balconies are booked-up quickly and guests sometimes book a year in advance.
This can be hard for Michael and Sophia to manage, but not anymore. PamplonaMan uses TrekkSoft as a booking tool. With the newly released resource manager, they don't have to worry about overbooking. The resource manager keeps track of how many bookings both the lodgings and balconies have. Once they are filled to capacity the resource manager will make it unavailable. So if you are planning on going to the festival, I suggest you book a balcony now...time is running out!
