We arranged a custom tour of Ireland with “off the beaten path” features for a group of 28… including a private concert by a world class pianist at his home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Had a small scale Irish dancing show just for the group with an instructor to let the group try it out. Visited several less known spots. Arranged golf tee times for members electing that overlooking the Wild Atlantic Way coast.
A high school choir had asked for a stop at a truck stop en route to NYC to change and clean up. We suggested that we instead get some of their hotel rooms early (from the night before) so they could cycle the kids through showers and avoid the Ee-yew factor of the truck stop.
Provide tour groups extreme pampering, a “holistic” experience, starting from their home town departure throughout with travel insurance, tips, airline checked bag fees and meals included. The latter where there are no real alternatives and those places with plenty of choices, turning them loose on their free time. We want to have an experience where they are not having to keep digging into their pocket or have “surprise” expenses where they really had no choice but to pay big money for overpriced meals.!
