Ubiquity International, the premier provider of unique cultural, historical and educational travel experiences, is the first tour company to offer travelers personalized tour photo books highlighting the sites and cities visited during the tour.
With the proliferation of digital photography, travelers still face challenges when it comes to organizing and preserving photos and travel memories.
"Whether film or digital, my photos still end up sitting in a shoe box on the shelf or in a file folder on my computer. I never take the time to organize the photos and attach notes so that I will remember the details of the photo," said Jane Moses, 65, who recently joined her sister Maureen Wood, 63, and granddaughter, Christine, 17, on the Ubiquity International Rome and Florence tour. "The tour photo book is great - it's like a family travel scrapbook with pictures of the cities, sites and people on the tour, but I don't have to do the work!"
Each tour participant receives a hardcover book containing high quality photos and text highlights of the sites and cities visited during the tour. Tour photo books are customized for each tour group with candid photos of individuals interacting with the cultural sites. A traveler’s own digital photos are frequently included in the tour photo book as well.
Photos include kids swimming in the Aegean during the Athens and Greek Isles tour, travelers enjoying a bullfight at the Plaza de Toros in Seville, Spain, and a group walking through the Forum Romanum as they learn about the ancient center of Roman spiritual and political life.
Carol Johnson, 43, who has traveled on several Ubiquity International tours with her son, Greg, 15, and friend Lisa Maker, 43, said, "The tour photo book produced by Ubiquity International is a wonderful idea! Beautifully put together with a hard cover, it can be displayed on your coffee table, enjoyed by family and friends, and the memories are forever!"
"We constantly strive to provide a superior level of service to our travelers; offering a tour photo book is just another example of our commitment to setting ourselves apart to truly be the premier provider of unique travel experiences," said Thomas Talboy, Director of Ubiquity International.
Talboy, who has a PhD in Classics and founded the company in 2004, is one of several Cultural Specialists who accompanies each tour. Cultural Specialists share their knowledge about the language, art, history and culture of the destinations, offering travelers a unique perspective into the sites and cities visited on the tour.
