A Travel Agent Shares: Why I use ToursByLocals for my clients

(back to blog)

We now have over 3,000 travel agents registered on our site. With some of them booking upwards of 50 tours in the last 6 months, we decided to find out what keeps them coming back to ToursByLocals. Joining us today is Vicki Bean from Luxe Travel in Boca Raton, Florida. Vicki has booked 33 private tours for clients so far. We asked her to share her answers to five questions:

1. Why do you use ToursByLocals?
A large part of my business is FIT’s (flexible independent travelers), and I like to be able to offer my clients private guides for a good value. I like that I can correspond with the guides to customize the tours.

2. Where have you used ToursByLocals guides for your clients?
Mostly all over Europe, but also in Korea, Morocco and Brazil.

3. Have your clients shared any feedback with you about their ToursByLocals experiences?
I always ask clients for feedback, and with very few exceptions, they have all been very satisfied.

4. Have there been any tours or guides you’d recommend in particular?
I have worked with a few guides more than once. Two in particular that have been exceptional are Andrea in Budapest, and Elena in St. Petersburg.

5. Any tips for agents new to the TBL system?
Keep in mind that you can send the guide a message before you book to ask any questions, and they will work with you.
