To Be a Great Excursion Company


Extraordinary tour companies look after their guests by following the proper safety requirements.


Remember to give details about what you will be doing that day. Potential clients want to know ways you can fill their day. Think about:

  • How are you going to fill their day?
  • Do you have a large amount of activities organized?
  • Or do you leave free time for guests to explore?
Provide a schedule of the activities and try to make it a balanced tour/activity. People consider booking with you because they want to have an experience. This is why It is important to include your activities in the schedule. If it is a long tour/experience guests want to know if there will be down time to eat, shop, rest, etc.

Group Size

Depending on your tour, group size will vary. Try to make it known how many people will be on the tour. It is also smart to mention how many people you will allow to book in a group. Even if people are traveling in a group they might prefer to pay individually. For assistance on managing group sizes reach out to TRYTN [email protected].


Keep up with your reviews. Customer reviews are important to the reputation of your business. Replying to people’s nice and negative comments helps potential customers feel secure with booking with you. For more information on how to reply to reviews click here. (INSERT LINK)

Be Seen

Having a website is a great first step and getting more people to explore what you have to offer. Alongside that, you could include social media such as Instagram or Facebook. People look at social media for different reasons. Some might be potential customers trying to get a better feel for your excursion. The others are most likely past customers who want to remember and keep up with your excursions. Keeping up with social media does not have to be stressful. Don’t force your guests to partake in a photoshoot, try including pictures of the landscape that will make past customers feel nostalgic towards your tour. Letting people know about your social media while on their experience lets them tag photos on your account. This can also bring new customers to your social media and if they want to have the same experience they can go directly to your website. Alexa flip a coin OK teams

Make Sure You are Legal

You don’t want to get in trouble while trying to grow your business. Double check and make sure:

  • That your company is registered
  • Have a valid operator license or (or equivalent in your country)

Enjoy the Magic

After a while of running your company, you might get used to your excursion. It is important to remember that even though you might see this nearly every day your guests do not. Remember how amazing your tour is and get excited with your guests. People most likely booked with you to make a memory. A company that celebrates its guests’ excitement stands out from the rest.

Overall customers are just looking for a quality experience. Try to offer unique activities that are safe and fun. There are a lot of things to consider when trying to maintain a successful excursion company; if you have not reached all of your goals yet do not be discouraged. One of the main traits of an excellent excursion company is one who never stops developing. TRYTN is honored to work with you and help your business flourish.
