Company Philosophy :We are a small, hands-on tour company. We recognize that our clients could choose to travel with a larger and better known company. Our commitment to our clients is that no company can equal the personalized service you will receive with us for the same affordable price. We work a relatively small region of the world, we have family members and friends as well as staff in the countries you will visit. We know as travelers, our clients want an authentic experience of the places they are visiting. Big tour companies have their own agendas to which they must sometimes sacrifice their client’s desires; with Blue Mountain Tours, your desires and interests are our sole criterion for a successful trip.
