Why should you book a tour through Take Me Tour?
Take Me Tour specializes in travel throughout Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. What makes Take Me Tour a unique company, is how they support local people. They do this by hiring local experts to ensure your tours and experiences are authentic. What’s also really neat is that to help you find what you are looking for, you can take a short quiz and the perfect tours tailored to your preferences will pop up.
They will also tailor tour and experiences to your desires!
To sign up with Take Me Tour is easy – just use your existing Google, Facebook or email. Once signed up, you can also create a wishlist of activities.
At checkout, they currently only accept PayPal, and major credit cards.
Their cancellation policy is also a bit more structured. It is designed to protect their tour guides. Only in extreme cases will a full refund be offered. Their policy is more strict because the people who run the tours are often individuals, not companies, who rely on tour income and may not have other customers to fall back on as a big tour company would.
However, contacting Take Me Tour is a breeze. To contact them use Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, or email. Their response rate is very fast.
Also, Take Me Tour offers two great promotions: 1. First time booking? Get 450 baht off! 2. Get a Free Trip – Refer a friend, and you will both get 500 baht off a booking. You must be a member to get this offer.
