Itinerary

Krinsol Ecotours' itinerary isn’t the conventional or traditional itinerary, it absolutely represent a major paradigm shift. Instead of pre-selected sites or attractions by organizers, customers are allowed to fully engage and participate in this key touch point of the customer journey. The ultimate goal is to give full and extended meaning to the concept of experience co-creation.

It’s also a rare opportunity for customers to interact directly with team Krinsol Ectours on best sites and attractions that suit their needs and expectations, and a unique space to begin honest discussions about customers’ needs, wants and expectations, believing that this helps to create a sense of ownership, commitment and how we build a pulsating experience together.

Krinsol Ecotours itinerary concept is influenced by the following key factors:

Experience Co-creation (customization and democratization): Dialoguing with customers in the choice of sites and attractions within a package after booking or reservation, which helps to create symbiotic relationships, a sense of involvement and ownership that ultimately lead to higher levels of commitment and trust.

Spontaneity: Flexibility in choosing sites and attractions in real-time, changes the status quo by avoiding the traditional or conventional and static tour operator pre-selected sites and attractions approach.

Suspense: Attractions can be decided on the move increasing anxiety about the next surprise that ultimately generate that awesome and unique "WOW" effects.

In fulfilment of, and conformity with our itinerary strategy, philosophy and culture, collaborative brainstorming processes with customers will be organized for the choice of sites and attractions for each day of the tour.
