How To Prepare For A Successful Tour

Updated on January 7, 2015

It’s every tourists hope that they will enjoy every bit of the tour they choose to undertake. Us we know saving for a tour usually takes a long time as much as ten or more years to save for it and therefore there should be no room for a single mistake as this will be a spoiler to much anticipated time. However in this in this write-up, we’ll take a look at the factors to be considered while planning.


While planning and doing itinerary preparation the determining factor should be your savings. This will give you proper guidelines on what to include and what will be sideline costs. While doing your tour costing also remember to consider who will be accompanying you. If it’s a family trip try to consider a bigger budget as most of the times miscellaneous costs and expenses will also be high. Try and do your own researches on the type of hotels you want to spend your time in and do your own reservation. This reduces the costing unlike where middle men are involved in doing your booking. Always make sure you have reference number of any of your booking before starting your tour.

Energy and Health

Age and health are factors that one should always consider. For instance, an asthmatic person can’t visit places with low temperature as this will increase their chances for an attack. The aging folks are mostly advised to use flights from one tourism attraction to the other where possible. This reduces their exhaustion unlike where there use 4*4 drives or vans as they are more exhausting than flights. This also saves times giving you an ample time to fully enjoy the destination.


Most tourist plans for their tour to be in summer season as this is the warmest of all. But unknown to many some countries especially East Africa countries do not experience season change. This due to the Equator passing in between it that is Kenya and Uganda. This season is mostly referred to as High Peak season. It’s a season whereby tourists flock most attractions in the world. This has brought in a new trend in the market whereby more tourists are taking their vacation during off peak seasons as this is almost half cheaper compared to the high seasons. Hotels are cheaper at this season as well as entrance fee to this attraction site.

Political Stability and Security

Most governments have advised their citizens not to visit some countries, either by giving travel advisory or sanctions. We have seen where government evacuates its citizens to ensure of their safety. For instance we saw almost all governments evacuating their citizens from Egypt and Libya during the anti-Mubarak and Gaddafi leading the coup against the government. Anyone with plans to visit such a place would be forced to cancel as that would be a suicide tour. Travel advisories are mostly given to countries with high chances of terrorist attacks. In places where this threats are real most government advises its citizens not to visit as this increases their chances of attacks.
