Our travelers went on a total of 23,708 tours with ToursByLocals guides in 2013. That's a whole lot of local travel experiences! We're eager to exceed that number this year by reaching out to people who haven't considered the value a private tour adds to a trip.
One way we'll reach this new audience is by being a presence at major consumer travel shows. 2014 will be the first year ToursByLocals attends this sort of event, and we're looking forward to meeting many current and potential travelers face to face for the first time.
Mid-January will see us attending the LA Times Travel Show. Our Director of Communications, Sara Cooke, and Account Manager David Young will be greeting a host of potential travelers at our booth (#944!). Some of our LA guides will also be in attendance throughout the two days. If you're an LA resident, be sure to stop by and say hello!
March 1st will see us doing it all over again in Manhattan, at the New York Times Travel Show. Flying from the West to the East coasts, we hope to meet many of our American friends.
We hope 2014 is off to a great start for you and your family, and we look forward to being a part of your travel plans this year. Happy New Year!
