Who they are
We select the best partners for every destination: all their products and services are those published on vivitravels.com and on the other vertical sites of the network.
Our partners are rigorously selected based on their expertise and quality. Generally, they are:
- DMCs (Destination Management Companies): travel agencies specializing in the creation of tailor-made trips in their area of reference.
- Tour Operators: mid-size and large travel operators creating package tours.
- Private Tour Operators: small-size companies or professionals selling one or a handful of themed tours taking place in their area of reference. They can be considered as “small-size highly-specialized DMCs”. Private Tour Operators include professionals offering sailing experiences in specific areas and organizers of desert trips, safari or rafting tours. Variety and quality are two key features of these offers.
- Privately owned accommodation facilities: they are selected facilities (not part of large hotel chains or tour operators) offering accommodation with additional services like Tai Chi lessons, horse riding courses, etc.
