The successful story of a professional passion!
"It starts in March 1996, with this special talent, with this sense of being able to transform vague ideas into a wonderful reality. The skill of combining extraordinary details into something very special, often into those deep, memorable experiences that let us break away from the gray everyday life into an enraptured world of thoughts...!"
It´s talking about turning everyday travel wishes into unforgettable dream holidays. Not just any dream trips. No. Just very personal, different, off the beaten track.
Personal.Terrific.Alternative. - P.T.A. ...!
March 1996: The starting signal is given...
What started small, quickly grew into a travel agency in great demand. From an initial specialization on the country of Greece, trips to all parts of the world soon developed due to the global travel wishes of the growing number of guests.
And in former responsible positions acquired, proven professional experience in the group travel business and impressive target area knowledge justified an outstanding expertise for the organization and execution of own group journeys.
Today, P.T.A. TOURS is certainly one of the largest and leading travel agencies in the field of organized hiking tours for hiking clubs, associations and worldwide umbrella organizations. The special thing is: we do not only bring the hikers of the countries to the worldwide events, we also show them on individual, planned discovery tours country and people and make them a little more familiar with the history, culture and tradition of host countries.
Over the decades, the travel theme "Travel for women in groups" has grown into another important brand, for and with women only. Our coordinated concept brings nature, hiking and culture-loving women together in community, but also grants the need for individuality the greatest possible space for a very personal time-out without any obligation. Many of our guests have been traveling with us for many years, and often new friendships develop from the shared experiences and the many inspiring conversations.
We are growing...
The demand for further, selected travel themes is increasing.
Encouraged by the sustainable recommendations of our guests and strengthened by a healthy, entrepreneurial development, over the years further travel focuses are added to the existing TravelThemes offer...
- Cultural trips
- City trips
- Individual tours
- Comfort hiking tours
- Mountain hiking tours
We always remain true to our philosophy and guiding principles in order to fulfill the justified expectations of our guests. And in this commitment we naturally also involve our selected local partners in the destinations of the world.
The heart of the company ....
However, the best business model is not sustainable if it is not supported by qualified employees in particular.
What began 25 years ago as a "one-woman business", today employs a total of 6 employees in the various areas of the company and additionally, if necessary, some "freelancers" in special areas, where very special, experienced skills are required, e.g. in alpine mountain hiking.
And these employees are the heart of the company. A well-founded professional training in tourism, an understanding of tourism processes, a thirst for knowledge and the will to constantly improve their professional skills are the foundation, accompanied by passion and enthusiasm for the world in general, and the travel wishes and needs of our guests in particular. This is what distinguishes our travel specialists. Listening to our guests and finding out which details are especially important for their personal dream vacation. And this is just one detail of our work....
We say thank you.... for 25 years of loyalty!
We would also like to say thank you...
- to all guests who remain loyal to us even in these times!
- all tourist partners in the destinations!
- all organizers, agencies, airlines, co-operations,....!
Without you P.T.A. TOURS would not have become what it is today.
In the future we will continue to stand for extraordinary travels with all our expertise, joy and enthusiasm and we are looking forward to making your travel dreams come true together! Becasse your travel wishes are our motivation!
