Welcome to our world!
Our company “Tours of the world” was founded in 2003. What brought the three founders together was the desire to travel, fueled by curiosity about other cultures and places. To this day we live for the chance to create fun and exciting trips that we ourselves would like to go on. We are fourteen employees who share this common goal, and pursue it using our different experiences and knowledge gathered from all around the globe. We are looking forward to planning your next adventure, and feel confident that it will be your best trip yet.
Jörgen Fredriksson, Joacim Ericson and Lottie Sundelöf, are our founders and partners.
Why should you choose “Tours of the world?"
We create trips with passion, curiosity and knowledge
There are a lot of travel and tour companies to choose from, and so it can be hard to get a feel on what makes each company different. Below are a few points and questions that may be useful to look at when comparing tour operators before your next travel experience, and our responses to them. Feel free to use this section as a guide to choosing the right tour organizer for you - though we feel confident that you'll find that we're the way to go!
How often is the tour organized? We don’t mass produce our trips. All of our tours take place 1-3 times per year, so that we can focus on making those few trips the best they can be. That makes the experience even more special.
What does the travel itinenary look like? Our travels are planned out by travel producers with plenty of knowledge, both academically gained and practical from real experience. They are always passionate about each trip, and do their outmost to make sure each one is better than the last. We always make it our goal to find the most interesting, fun, and unique activities and sights for every adventure. To do this we make sure that you get to see not only the major well known sights, but also the hidden gems off the beaten path.
What transportation is used? We choose our transportation depending on the cirumstances and goals of each specific trip. Train, airplane, boat, and public transportation, are all good means of transportation with their own distinct benefits which will give you a good insight into the country you are visiting. For details on transportation, feel free to reach out to one of our travel producers!
What is included in the trip? Our trips are filled with a variety of activities and visits to unique places. All of the activities in the itinerary as well as other requirements for your trip such as transportation and a Swedish-speaking guide are included in the price of the tour. We make sure that there is a good balance between information about your destination and what we see and experience there, sightseeing and the opportunity to explore on your own time.
How big are the groups? In order to arrange trips with quality as well as to travel in a responsible way, taking into account the local circumstances and environment, we travel with smaller groups of people than most tour companies. We usually bring 10-18 travelers with us on our adventures. This also enables us to go to places larger groups can't!
Who’s leading the group? Our travels are led by specialists who speak not only Swedish, but also the local language, and who have vast knowledge of the region you’re visiting. Both the travel producer who plans out the tour and your guide will make sure that you will get knowledge as well as gain understanding and real insight about your destination.
Do I have to pay for a single bedroom if I’m travelling alone? No, we always offer the opportunity to share a room with another traveler of the same gender. If there is an uneven number of travelers, we will pay the higher room fee ourselves. If you want to book and be guaranteed a single room, that is no problem at all, although you will be required to pay and extra fee to make up for the difference in room expenses. With us, you always have an option!
Is there a travel policy? We have a policy document that describes our responsibilities and obligations toward you as our customer, and also how we work in regards to the environment aid, and economic realities. You can read more about this in the left column in Swedish. For more information in English, you're very welcome to call our office.
Am I protected as a consumer? Yes, our company follows the Swedish Consumer Law; among others the Package Travel Act and Guarantee Law. You as a consumer are completely protected.
Tour prices. Comparing prices for different tours at different companies can be difficult, but if you check the questions above and keep in mind how many days the journey is, you will have a reliable way of measuring the value included in the tour price. It's also useful to keep in mind that prices vary between different locations around the world.
