An Authentic Approach to Travel
Why Veloso Tours?
Our ethos at Veloso Tours, is to provide an in-depth perspective of Life in Latin America & China to enhance your visit. We do this by focusing on your own personal interests and sharing with you our understanding of local life, people and culture. Our specialist knowledge, professional management and hand-picked guides enrich your journey, for an authentic travel experience.
Our expert specialist consultants will prepare travel arrangements and tailor-made, bespoke itinerary planning. We have all travelled extensively throughout Latin America, with our first hand knowledge, our deep understanding of the culture and boundless enthusiasm for "Life in Latin America". Since then we have explored China in great depth and have developed a similar passion and expertise in the east. You will find an honest approach to planning an itinerary, advising you of "pros and cons", suggesting sights and selecting accommodation. We believe this approach ensures you have the best possible service.
We focus on your own interests through our Client Questionnaire analysis, so that these can be applied to the planning of your holiday and enhance your experience during the excursions on tour.
They will look after you face to face, bringing places to life by conveying their knowledge and enthusiasm. Our local tour guides are experts in their own field with a wealth of information to enhance your visit and some work exclusively for us. They also have excellent communication skills to ensure that you are provided with the information that interests you, in a way that holds your attention.
We provide all our clients with our Traveller's Guide and restaurant suggestions, providing helpful information on what you will need and where to go while you are away.
