Every year, in early summer, many hundreds of tour operators start keeping an extra careful eye on their email. It’s that time when Travel + Leisure announces the results of its World’s Best Survey. Every year since 2004, Classic Journeys has been in the top 10 and 2X (2019 and 2014) has been named the World’s Best Tour Operator.
Every year, when the fantastic news arrives we are as thrilled as ever. As they say in the investing world, past performance is not a guarantee of future returns. We start from zero every year, and we know we have to constantly up our game to remain in the crème de la crème.
And each year, your fellow travelers rate us a score of around 98 out of 100. And the thing is, Travel + Leisure doesn’t just count votes, they count the quality of the votes. If you’ve ever participated in the process, you know that they ask you to rank companies you’ve traveled with in the categories of value, destinations, guides, 5-star lodgings, cuisine and activities.
Our consistent spot at the top of the World’s Best list means that those who vote for Classic Journeys give us the highest possible rating virtually every time. That’s far better than just winning a popularity contest. The way we handcraft trips is what earns Classic Journeys the most stratospheric ratings among a field of contenders that grows bigger and bigger every year. The personal attention we lavish on every trip—and every guest—is a time-intensive and incredibly satisfying commitment.
As we hunt for new ways to say thank you to the travelers who vote and give Classic Journeys their highest praise, we realize again how fortunate we area. And how fortunate everyone on the Classic Journeys team is. We work, plan and share experiences with the world’s best guests. That’s what makes it fun to come to work every day. Thank You.
As I hunt for a twelfth way to say thank you to the travelers who took the time to vote and give Classic Journeys their highest praise, I realize again how lucky I am. And how lucky everyone on the Classic Journeys team is. We get to work, plan and share experiences with the world’s best guests. That’s what makes it fun to come to work every day. Thank You.
