Monterrasol Travel statement about the coronavirus situation

We, Monterrasol Travel, would like to clarify our position regarding the services we provide in the light of the coronavirus crisis.

1. All our travel activities temporarily stopped following the World Health Organization (WHO) advices, due to the unability to cross the borders and being in quarantine if the border crossing happens. We closely monitors the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on travelers and the travel industry from trusted sources. We are concerned about your safety and health. It is important to stay home right now and follow the recommendations from the WHO and our governments.

2. By experts understanding and authorities expectations the coronavirus will be finally contained since the situation evolves rapidly and the current severe global restrictions will be finished at some point. Of course, no one knows for sure how long this will take. However, when the situation change, it gets better and travel is safe again, we will restore our services.

3. Based on strong and positive believes that the coronavirus pandemic will be over, we welcome everybody who wants to think forward and do some travel planning. There is a lot of free time while staying home these days. Use some of that leisure time for research, plan and tune the trip of your dreams.

One more thing...
Tourism has stopped around the world, prime destinations such as UNESCO World Heritages sites and world-class museums were forced to close. Everyone is forced into lockdown and self-isolation. Certainly, these are hard times that we are in, but you can still feed your travel inspiration and keep positive. Follow us on our social networks!

Last but not least, we would like to ask you to do your best to protect yourself and your loved ones against infection. Stay safe at home. Stay optimistic. Keep informed. Take care. Travel later.


Let's define a few things!

Currently there is no widely accepted definition of the term tourist destination. From the traveler perspective, a tourist destination is a city, town, or other area that is dependent to a significant extent on the revenues accruing from tourism, or "a country, state, region, city, or town which is marketed or markets itself as a place for tourists to visit". Tourist destination may contain one or more tourist attractions.

Cultural tourism is the subset of tourism concerned with a country or region's culture, specifically the lifestyle of the people in those geographical areas, the history of those people, their art, architecture, religion, and other elements that helped shape their way of life.

A tour operator typically combines tour and travel components to create a travel package. An independent tour operator is an individual or company that works by themselves as tour operators. They are not owned by another company like a franchise or chain. An independent tour operator develops, organizes and promotes its own tours directly.

An escorted tour is a form of tourism in which travelers are taken in a group to various destinations, versus a self-guided tour where the tourist is on its own. Escorted tours are normally conducted by a tour leader who takes care of all services from beginning to end of your tour. The tour leader takes care of the logistics; this includes accommodation, transportation, sightseeing, transfers to and from the airport/hotel and most meals.

Escorted tour, whether just a couple travelling with a guide in a private car or a small group led by a tour leader, becoming an increasingly popular way to discover destinations of all kinds. Travelling with like-minded people, you have more time to enjoy the destinations you have come to visit, and often you get insight and access to places and experiences which independent tourists cannot reach.

The private small group car tour allows you to travel more like with family or friends instead having the trip with multiple strangers on a crowded bus. We, at Monterrasol Travel, use passenger vans such as Renault Trafic, Opel Vivaro and Fiat Scudo, that carry up to 8 people, including driver and tour leader. One clear advantage of a small group tour is that we are not obliged to follow a strict timetable like a big tourist bus. So, we can be much more relaxed and flexible in our schedule.

Under term custom tour we at Monterrasol Travel understand an independent travel plan designed and arranged just for you. Custom tours from us are always include private airport and hotel transfers; hotels; transfers during the tour by car, trains, cruises; events and activities; and visits any place and in any style that you want to travel.

Monterrasol Travel private tours are fully escorted tour packages, which means in each tour you will have your own tour leader and your own driver that use a private, only for you or your party, a car, as a rule a passenger van. Both, tour leader and driver, are at your service during time of the trip. The meaning of private tour also mean, you will not be mixed with any other travellers in car.
