MTC Tour Directors
Leading a Group Tour may not seem like rocket science to the casual observer. After all, you’ve loaded the coolers and suitcases and pets and kids in the car and taken the family on plenty of road trips, most of which weren’t absolute disasters. However, handling the minute-to-minute coordination of travel arrangements for a group of 10 or more offers special challenges and demands full-time attention.
Music Travel Consultants' Tour Directors have been carefully selected for their people skills and for their management skills. Much like a music director, the professional Tour Director works hard to make sure the group receives clear communication and stays on time, so that it is able to enjoy all of the things promised by the trip. Although he or she doesn’t know for whom that river is named or what kind of tree is in that park, the Tour Director’s primary job is to make sure the group receives everything to which it is entitled. Doing so involves communication and re-communication with coach drivers, hotels, restaurants, attractions, Tour Guides, performance venues, other transportation providers, rental agencies and much more. In addition to this behind-the-scenes work, the Tour Director also mingles with the group, gauging its pulse, giving clear instructions, making sure questions are answered and any assistance needed is provided. After the group is bedded down for the night, your Music Travel Consultants Tour Director spends time getting the day’s receipts and transactions in order and planning for tomorrow’s activities.
Extensive “on-the-road” experience, attention to detail, and plenty of homework enable your Music Travel Consultants Tour Director to provide a smooth, enjoyable trip, full of the fun and features you joined the trip for in the first place!
