Hey! I’m Jun Loayza and I started Tour Woo! because of an annoying problem that I encountered while booking a tour to Peru.
My group of 7 wanted to tour the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu, and the Amazon in Peru. The most obvious place to start was Google, so I did a simple Google search for “best tours in peru”. The result was pages upon pages of tourism agencies in Peru. Needless to say, it took me a while to get over my decision paralysis and start contacting the agencies for itineraries and pricing.
I realized that it was extremely annoying to fill out a form on each agency website – I must have filled out 15 forms in total. Furthermore, the websites aren’t very user friendly, making it difficult and time consuming at times to get to the contact page.
Furthermore, I didn’t know which agency to trust. It’s a bit scary to travel to a country, not speak the language, and hope that the agency you’ve chosen is legit and won’t scam you out of money. I therefore had to spend hours researching the tourism agencies to find reviews and determine if it was legit.
Lastly, I had several threads of 30+ emails on my Gmail account because of the back-and-forth that I had to deal with. The whole process was inefficient, extremely time consuming, and stressful because I was left unsure about the deal I chose: did I get a good deal or should I have researched more and gotten additional itineraries and price quotes?
Several months later, my friend asked me about my trip to Peru and which tourism agency I recommend. I told him that they’re all different, and that there are certain agencies for the Inca Trail and other agencies for the Amazon.
Because I still had the contact email of all the travel agencies that I dealt with, I sent 1 email to all of them with my friend’s travel information. Because I knew the exact information that these travel agencies wanted (because of my past experience with them), I significantly cut down on unnecessary back-and-forth emailing. After a few days, I sent my friend detailed itineraries and price quotes. Without having to do any research or emailing, my friend was able to easily and conveniently choose an itinerary and price that suites his group’s needs.
A lightbulb turned on in my head: if I can do this for my friend, perhaps I can do this for other people too. Furthermore, if I can do this for Peru, then I should be able to do it for many other countries as well.
Tour Woo was born.
