The days of paper itineraries, fold-out maps, and even phone calls to work out whether to turn left or right at the barn are all in the rear view mirror for cyclists touring with self-guided tour operator ‘Inn to Inn’ of Vermont. The husband and wife team behind the popular independent cycling tours have found that their post-pandemic cyclists have unanimously adopted and endorsed the Vamoos app which removes all the guesswork.
There is still the welcome touch of an in-person orientation talk on the first day. But the app is like having a tour guide along for the ride, useful for pre-trip planning (including a countdown on the home screen before departure for Vermont) as well as on-trip reference. Throughout the tour, cyclists spend a few minutes over breakfast each morning scrolling through poetry-like daily narratives authored by tour directors Seth and Olia Hopkins. These feature highlights of the day, options for side trip excursions, and (perhaps most importantly) the recommended lunch spot. The Vamoos app also offers up-to-date weather, safety recommendations, tips for a smooth trip, emergency contacts, and PDF versions of the traditional paper itineraries.
Most importantly – their clients love it. With Vamoos even mentioned as a key highlight in Inn to Inn’s TripAdvisor reviews, something must be going right.
A great itinerary is key to impressing your prospective and current customers, and making their trip as simple as it can possibly be. It should go into a good amount of detail, and should be simple to read and easy to follow. Read on to find out exactly why they are so important …
