Even in the age of online booking, tour operators are a great source of information, destination-knowledge and ideas. A tour operator can make sure that your trip is tailored to you, assist you in case of unprecedented issues, and help you anticipate potential bottlenecks in advance.
Tour Operators are specialists and the information and concepts they share are all tried and tested, they can take the planning burden off your shoulders as they intimately understand their products and features and recommend what would be the best fit for their clients.
In many cases, you save more when you work through a travel planner or tour operator - these specialists save you hours of time you may otherwise use to browse looking at options or deals.
