Small Colorado Business Thrives in Big, Bad Economy

Share Article

QueensLander International, LLC - In spite of uncertain economic times, one small tour operator has more than doubled revenue in the last three years, and is on target to be a leading force in the niche of small group travel. Affordable luxury with excellent, individual customer service are driving factors.

QueensLander International, LLC - QueensLander Tours of Highlands Ranch is a small niche travel operator which began in 1993. From a home basement, they have struggled over the years to carve out a place against the big competitors. Like a true David and Goliath story, they have fought the slings and arrows of a giant, unpredictable economy to become a driving force in the small group travel industry.

Picture this:

  • 2009 - One Denver employee, four tour managers, and 300 annual guests
  • 2010 - Five employees, six tour managers, and 500 guests per year
  • 2011 - Seven employees, eight tour managers, with 1100 guests

During the past three years, revenue more than doubled, and had exceeded that of 2010’s total by August 15, 2011.

The key for this company is a focus on small group luxury travel, affordable prices, friendly tour managers, and an excellent customer-service driven attitude from top to bottom.

QueensLander’s motto is “Leave the Herd Behind,” and if the trend continues, it is poised to lead the way in shaping the future of small group travel. For more information, visit
