Receptive tour operators offer localized services and tourism experiences for visitors, including those who are booked through international tour operators. Receptive tour operators know their local markets and help group tours by offering specific experiences and well-planned itineraries.
Generally, receptive tour operators purchase services (such as hotel rooms and transportation) from suppliers and package them to be sold to group tour operators.
Group tour operators generally organize and plan day trips or multi-day trips for groups of 20 or more guests (that number varies from business to business).
