We are thrilled to announce that, with a score of 96.97, Trek Travel was named one of the World’s Best Tour Operators in 2016.

“It’s a question that has plagued the travel industry for some time—has the wealth of information on the internet and the rise of digital booking tools signaled the end of tour operators? As our readers have told us time and time again, the answer is no,” said Stephanie Wu of Travel + Leisure.

“In fact, some argue, we need travel agents more than ever to cut through the clutter and tell us what is really worth seeing. A top tour operator will negotiate the best rates possible, take care of all logistics, and help out if any issues come up during the course of the trip, such as a missed connection or overbooked hotel. Most importantly, they will plan an itinerary that is just right for you.”

Among our industry’s highest honors, this distinction means so much more because it was awarded by you. You are the reason we’re in business–your stories inspire us, your energy fuels us, and your expectations drive us to be the best. Thanks for all the fun you have, and the love you’ve shared with us over the years.
