Walking Trips, an independent resource that provides reviews, recommendations and other resources on walking vacations, has recently launched.
"Walking tours are an amazing way to spend a vacation, but up to now, it's been hard to figure out who the right vendor is for a vacationer’s specific need. Our site is about helping people research the walking vacation that is right for them," said Walking Trips Founder Ted Chan.
Walking Trips provides recommendations for where to go on a country by country basis, as well as tips for the most popular walking tour regions, such as Italy, UK, and the National Parks of the US.
The site also has a walking tour company user reviews section, with the contact information for more than 300 global operators. Company reviews can be sorted by overall rank, country, and typical price point. In addition to overall satisfaction, users can rate companies on food, accommodations, walking quality, and quality of the guides.
"As an active vacation person myself I have had great walking tours and some active adventures that were disappointing. We want to bring transparency to the walking vacation market, and reward those who provide the best customer service," said Chan.
In addition, the site provides all sorts of guidance to riders on how to get the most out of a walking vacation, such as training tips, packing guides, and travel guidance.
Finally, the Walking Trips blog for the latest updates across the walking tour industries, including updates on the newest, most exciting tours, ideas for exciting rides, and training tips. The Walking Trips Blog will be updated frequently.
