How We Work

Initial Contact:
We are committed to personalized service; call MG Tour Co and speak directly with a friendly and knowledgeable Destination Specialist!

You are important to us!  When you call us you will not get an automated menu ("Listen closely because our options have changed…") When you call MG Tour Co, one of our representatives who knows best how to meet your needs will answer your call, gladly listen to your request, and either assist you directly or transfer you to the person best suited to help you. If you happen to call outside of our regular business hours or at a time when all of our lines are busy, you will reach a recorded message; if this happens, please leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.

When you let us know where you want to go, we assign one of our friendly and knowledgeable Destination Specialists to work with you until your itinerary is complete.  We also have staff members that specialize in international flights, travel insurance, visas, etc. 

Planning Your Trip:
It’s YOUR vacation; why settle for a pre-packaged deal that’s merely the ‘closest match’ to what you really want? MG Tour Co will custom tailor a trip to your exact needs and interests!

It is our belief that your trip should be designed around what YOU want to do, and not based on what others are offering. Many times, people begin planning their trip by thinking, “What does this company offer that I can fit into?” As every traveler has different wants and interests, a person will usually have to ‘settle’ for a package that is closest to their ideal trip. Our question then becomes, why settle for a trip when you can have exactly what you want?

When you contact MG Tour Co, we will begin planning your trip by listening to what YOU would like to do. You and your Destination Specialist will discuss things such as your ideal trip length, level of accommodation, types of activities in which you would like to partake, specific sites you would like to see, and any special interests that you may want to incorporate into your travel. Don’t worry if you do not have all of the answers to these questions; this initial consultation is just to get a feel for what you might like your experience to be. Even if you have no idea where you would like to travel, for how long, or what types of experiences you would like to have, our Destination Specialist can talk you through a few things, ask questions that may help you get started on the right track, and offer suggestions based on their extensive knowledge.

After your initial consultation, your Destination Specialist will customize a preliminary itinerary for you based on your requests. We will send it to you for your comments and reflection. Then, once we have received your feedback, we will revise the itinerary and return to you a second draft, to ensure your trip is exactly what you are looking for.  Upon your approval of the price and the tour itinerary, we can make the reservations and your customized tour can become a reality! 

You are spending your time and money to go to another part of the world & we want to help you have a wonderful, unforgettable experience!

While Traveling:
When you travel with MG Tour Co, you not only have the support of our experienced staff in the United States, you also have the support of our network of local partners throughout the world!

In each of our destinations, we work either with our own local offices or excellent, like-minded partners who share our dedication to providing you quality services and customized travel experiences. While we take every precaution to ensure your trip is executed smoothly and completed as planned, we realize that there are occasionally unforeseen events, disruptions, and/or surprises along the way. The unexpected is an inevitable part of travel (and for many of us, contributes to why we enjoy traveling so much!); however, we believe that it is important to be prepared in the event that something goes awry. For this reason, we have set up a 3-Level Support System to assist you while you are abroad. With this 3-Level system we do our best to resolve issues quickly, while you are still traveling; adjusting your travel as needed to enable you to maximize your time there.

Our 3-Level Support System:

  1. Your Professional In-Country Guide (Your guide is equipped to handle and effectively resolve various situations that you may encounter.)
  2. A Local Emergency Number (If you and your guide are unable to resolve a particular issue, our local partner will be available to assist you.)
  3. Our USA office (For most issues that cannot be resolved locally, you can contact us by e-mail or phone during our office hours.  IN THE CASE OF AN EMERGENCY, you may also call our Emergency Hotline number in the USA 24/7.)

After Your Trip:
We are always trying to improve our services.
Your feedback is very valuable to us.

After you have returned from your trip, we would love to hear your feedback! Please call or write us and let us know what you liked and what you think could use improvement.  If you enjoyed planning and traveling with us, we would love to continue to help you with your future travel needs. We have many clients who travel with us time and time again; we call them our VIFs (Very Important Friends). They are confident that we will provide them the best travel services and experiences and we increasingly learn exactly what they like and enjoy. Our VIFs also enjoy various special benefits; if you are interested in this, please ask us about our VIF (Very Important Friends) Program.

When to Begin Planning Your Trip

We recommend that you plan ahead.

It’s a good idea to plan your trip well in advance; after all, planning the trip is half the fun! While we will work with you regardless of your departure date, we recommend planning your trip at least 3-6 months in advance. The longer you wait to plan, the more you risk some element of the tour (guide, accommodation, event) being sold out or unavailable. When you book your travel at the last minute, rush fees and late fees may apply.

 

Why Travel with Us

7-Distinct Advantages to Traveling with MG Tour Co

1.   We provide personalized service.
When you call us you will not get automated phone menus or computerized responses. You will have a personal travel counselor working with you on your tour.

2.   We provide customized quality tours.
Rather than settling for a general tour, which may or may not be what you really want, why not let us work with you on your ideal trip? With offices in the USA and abroad, we will listen to your tour needs and design your tour according to your preferences. 

3.   Our itineraries are based on personal experience and regional expertise.
We are not just reading a brochure to you - we know your destinations and will give you advice based on direct experience.

4.  We limit the size of our small group tours (typically 6-20).
Many tours are on full buses, which waste your time and have virtually no flexibility. We limit the size or our tours to give you the highest quality experience.

5.  We provide unique and enriching experiences not found on general tours.
We add many special features and unique sites to our tours, providing many opportunities to really get to know the culture and people of the country you are visiting.

6.  We provide emergency contact support to you throughout your entire trip.
We provide you phone and FAX numbers for all of your hotels, service and emergency contact numbers in the country you're visiting, and the support of our US offices.
 
7.  We do not let obligatory factory and shopping mall stops run the trip.
Many companies have a "hidden agenda."  They rush you through the main tour sites so that they can take you to factories and official malls. We limit these shopping stops to the most interesting ones. We will give you more time at the Great Wall than the Great Mall.
