Bespoke travel - Hong Kong A La Carte
7 June 2018
Holidaying abroad, to far away and exotic destinations, or at home has become widely available to all.
In order to cut costs, travel services are however very often not up to standard. For instance, it is not rare to encounter disappointments with regards comfort, unprofessional service providers and even worst, having to share accommodations with complete strangers.
City tours can also be affected: forced shopping, inaudible guides, lack of autonomy (which involves running after the tour leader without having the time to take photos or ask questions), the list of discontents can be lengthy.
To avoid these frustrations, more and more people now want to travel differently and do not hesitate to ask for custom made services, tailor-made to their needs in order to not only meet but also exceed their expectations.
What is bespoke traveling?
Listening to the customers’ requirements and wishes and adapting itineraries to their various imperatives are core to these new bespoke services proposed by agencies.
Whether they are traveling with their families, in couple or single, whether they are sporty or experiencing mobility difficulties, all will find something that suits their demands. Queuing indefinitely and visiting packed tourist attractions is also a thing of the past, thanks to the private guides who will know how to visit landmarks without these constraints.
The success of a tailor-made tour is mostly achieved if the guide is competent, professional and knows how to assemble the pieces of the puzzle, which consist the itinerary. Anecdotes, legends, historical facts, photos, the clients embark on a fascinating and mysterious voyage that will, no doubt, satisfy their prerequisites.
Impromptu changes in forecast, list of envies or new advice? Bespoke tours offer the genuine flexibility to adjust programmes to the clients’ wishes. Airport pick ups and returns for travellers in transit, hotel pick ups and drop offs for the others, timing and meetings points are ideal and adaptable.
How much does it cost?
As they are custom-made, these services are generally more expensive than tour groups. But not so much so and you should be happily surprised to find that costs are mostly affordable with a good quality/price ratio (around 830 HKD/half day/person and 1400 HKD/full day/person).
Hong Kong innovates with inbound travel agencies such as HONG KONG A LA CARTE selling unique and custom-made tours depicting themes such as: sporty Hong Kong, nature lovers, arty Hong Kong, local gastronomy, shopping, ecotourism, architecture, celebrations and local festivities, ghost villages, photo, historical Hong Kong, Traditional Chinese Medicine, musical Hong Kong, Feng Shui or marriage proposals.
