http://www.evancarmichael.com/support/ - SUPPORT ME :) Like this video? Please give it a thumbs up below and/or leave a comment - Thank you!!! In this video I answer a question from one my readers who asked: Hi Evans am thinking of starting a tour company that would also source accommodation for its clients and would take clients to any destination in kenya for a reasonable fee.I have carried out a research to find out how we need to introduce ourselves in the market and also researched on things like competition and how to stand out from the rest also marketing whereby we need to network with agencies abroad and also from the east so that they can be sending us clients for a commission.I have contacted a few of them through the internet and they are positive. Our target group is local and international tourists,honeymooners,corporates having trips and team building activities. Our international airport here in nairobi also gets tourists who have no idea which tour company is taking care of them so the taxi drivers at the airport are also our target whereby when they bring clients we shall give them a commission based on the package the clients are taking. So it is a noble idea but the financial part to implement it is a problem.Am passionate about it because i have worked in the hospitality industry all my life so at least i got experience and the know how. I hope you will also like the idea. Thanks. Kind regards, Christine Githaiga.

Great Tanzania (3 months ago)
My name is Joseph Waya. I am the owner and founder of Great Tanzania Adventure & Vacation. I am a Tanzanian, born and raised in Kilimanjaro region. Personally I have been a porter on Mount Kilimanjaro for over three years, and then mountain guide for over three years. With my great experience in mountain climb and wildlife helping me in managing and organizing a great team of people that guarantee the highest quality of service and Good Corporation I am open-minded, casual, easy-going and most importantly, I believe in nature and adventure and spend most of my time seeking more adventures. My hobbies are Touring, cruising, sightseeing, hiking and different other outdoor activities. I am a realistic thinker who enjoys life in natural surroundings and always looking under that rock or over the ledge hoping to bring happiness and a better life to all that I meet. I wake up each day to see the beautiful Mount Kilimanjaro and my dream is that someday the whole world will get to experience this lifetime adventure through Great Tanzania Adventure & Vacation. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to experience the best trekking and safari tours adventure of a lifetime! Your adventure starts with us. Thanks Evan

You are suggesting that most people travel to Africa and they are more comfortable with clean cut white people (I am guessing that is what you mean by "people who look like you") who will show them around or advise them who can be trusted. And you do realise that English is one of the two official languages spoken in Kenya? Otherwise I agree. Wearing a uniform and having professionally made marketing material are great ideas.
Evan Carmichael (1 year ago)
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I believe not all people that travels to Africa are clean cut white people though (and he didn't say it to be of disrespect) but people might be comfortable with those they can resonate with and being professional, showing courtesy and great customer service would be what is important. :) #BTA397 Shine

Sunny Greetings from Maldives Evan, My name is Farix, I had experience in Reservations and at Front Office Top Level as I started from a receptionist on year 2000 and I ended up being a Front Office and Reservation Manager at Several well known International Hotel Chains at year 2008 with IATA Certification as Travel Agent & Consultant. I was married with Japanese in year 2008, started 3 travel companies until year 2012 and I failed because I joined with wrong people as partners while making those companies, but still they are success in the business and I am just out of it. I have created a new company www.innovativeadventures.co with 2 of my uncles at February 2013 and I am working on it hard. But as years passed, the way of marketing has been totally changed from email marketing to online marketing or social media marketing, I am just trying to get used to it. I have my own brand new travel company in sri-lanka as well, I am trying to market sri-lanka and maldives, but innovative will be based in Maldives. I just want to get your advise on this. also I welcome any comments or interests from any members to work together as team, specially I welcome beginners just like me. can email me at: [email protected] and cc: [email protected] Cheers All. Farix

Thanks evan. I'm considering starting a tour company in my local city ( a smallish city). We get cruise ships during summer. My tours would be cultural tours, where i take international visitors to art galleries and some stylish restaurents etc, the city has a thriving art and food scene. My only concern is art is quite niche and I'm not sure whether the sort of people who go on cruise ships would be interested in visual art or classy food? what do you know about cruise ship clients (they seem old and middle income people)

cinimod351 (4 years ago)
Hi no I haven't but, yes, I agree, seems the obvious thing to do. I need to to a lot more research and make up a business plan. My other main concern is I have no experience working as a tour guide. I'm a people person and I know a lot about the city in which I live, but no actual tour guide experience. However, on the plus side starting a tour guide business and being the sole operator my over heads would be low so if it doesn't go that smoothly to begin with it would not be a great financial burden (or loss). Thanks for you advice

Hi Evan Any tips on starting a Touring Agency via the internet and then linking it to a Road Tour service in South-Africa? I have a few cool ideas but would like to hear your opinion.

+Evan Carmichael Yeah I thought about things directed to the needs of the tourist. We have 9 beautiful and unique provinces, was thinking about linking each province to a personality of a tourist using an online questionnaire. Doing that, I can create the perfect tour route directed to the needs and personality of my client.
