I have been in the tour business for 26 years to just China and Tibet. I started out doing standard group tours to the usual sights. I wasn’t much different than the rest of the tours on line. People would often ask if they could see a sight that wasn’t on the tour and I quickly learned that I should do private independent tours to people’sinterests and needs rather than general off the shelf tours. Today I do mostly private tours designed to the customers interests and needs. I also do some group tours for groups that come to me with their own specific needs and interests. After all you should see what you are interested in rather than spend valuable time seeing things you may not have any interest in. Some people love museums and others often feel it is a waste of their time. Each has their own likes and dislikes. Rather than group standard meals, it is nice to be able to express your likes and dislikes and be able to sit down at a table and be served food prepared just for you rather than stand in line for a Buffett with steamed food. My blog contains much information that I have gathered over the years but if you have any specific questions, feel free to contact me without being added to a spam list or be subject to a sales pitch.
