“After a day of adventure, there is nothing better than relaxing in an Icelandic thermal bath in the evening. My tip: the pool in Hofsós in the north of Iceland offers a breathtaking view of the fjord next to it.”
Travel Expert for Europe
“Africa is known for its majestic Big Five, but there is also an incredible variety of animals in the desert that we should definitely experience. I therefore recommend taking part in an exciting Living Desert Tour in Namibia from Swakopmund.”
Travel Expert for Africa
“Costa Rica surprised me as soon as I arrived: when on the way to my lodge, a sloth was close enough to touch on the edge of the river. The Caribbean coast with its white sandy beaches and snorkeling in the turquoise sea is also unique. ”
Travel Expert for Central & South America
“The Okavango Delta in Botswana is particularly wonderful to marvel at on a panoramic flight at sunset, where you can see buffalo and elephants from the air. The view of the shimmering grassy areas and rivers is breathtaking.”
Travel Expert for Africa
“You're in Hanoi but don't know where to dine today? Look out for the little bistros with most of the locals in front of them. For five euros you will dine like queens and kings - on rather deep plastic stools.”
Travel Expert for Asia
“While in Sydney, take the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly. Marvel at the surfers at Manly Beach, hike to North Head, or snorkel at beautiful Shelly Beach. A more "Aussie Lifestyle" is not possible!”
Travel Expert for Down Under
Our travelers benefit from the advantages of a Travel Expert: you tell us your wishes and we take over the individual travel —from start to finish. You don't need to deal with the complexities of booking everything separately from a myriad of providers. Our customers can confidently leave flight bookings, hotel reservations and pre-order rental cars to us.
Advice from our Tourlane Travel Experts is free and non-binding. This also applies to the travel offers that have been put together especially for our customers.
At Tourlane, we combine the service and personal advice of a travel agency, with digital technology to make unique individual trips bookable online quickly and easily. We have developed our own software for this, with which our trained Travel Experts can put together tailor-made trips in real time. Thanks to the direct connection of local partners in all the destinations we offer, we can offer our customers tailor-made travel experiences to third parties without additional costs and commissions.
At Tourlane, every traveler has a personal Travel Expert who guarantees the highest level of service before, during and after the trip. These trained experts accompany our travelers from the first conversation, by phone or email, through the entire booking process, through to the trip itself and beyond—completely free of charge.
We believe that travel is good for the world. It connects cultures and opens new horizons that allow us to understand the world better, grow personally and make unforgettable memories. As a sustainable travel company, our goal is to promote responsible and sustainable tourism—in everything we do.
In 2020, we offset 40,000 tons of CO2, which is equivalent to 100% of our emissions. We will continue this initiative into 2021, and will eliminate all CO2 emissions from all of our trips in the long term.
Concerned about your safety? We are too. That's why we take every possible step to incorporate security into every aspect of your trip, no matter where in the world you are. Find out which are the safest destinations to visit during the pandemic.
