This is the story of the adventurer, the romantic, the explorer. It's the story being told to the grandchild on your lap, or at the bar reminiscing with friends. It's the story about how you met your wife wine tasting in the Beaujolais Villages, about how you hung on for dear life on the back of a Vespa through the hills of the Amalfi coast or about how you woke up bare back on pure white sandy beaches, forgetting the details of how you got there, but knowing it was the best night of your life. Unlike many group tours this isn't everyone's story.
This is YOUR story.
Travelous is a private tour operator made up of Tour Architects who customize our travelers experiences based on their values and how they dream to see the world.

UNLIKE MANY GROUP TOURS THIS ISN’T EVERYONE’S STORY.
THIS IS YOUR STORY
For over fifteen years, Founder Chris Bazos has been living his passion for travel by creating adventures and fulfilling travelers dreams through customized holiday and expedition planning. Bringing affordable private guided travel to the masses was always a vision Chris had over the years and he knew in order to make it successful he had to establish a collective of travelers and tour managers; a team who shared his passion, experience and values.
WHETHER YOU ARE THE FIRST TIME TRAVELER OR THE VETERAN EXPLORER, TRAVELOUS WILL CREATE YOUR STORY.
Chris joined forces with Yvonne Zagermann, a German TV Journalist and the author of the award winning travel blog "JustTravelous". The idea to collaborate on this venture came about when Chris was searching for a suitable name for this private tour company. The concept fell directly in line with Yvonne's work and view of travel. Rather than consider the name similarity as a deal breaker, Chris viewed it as an opportunity to which Yvonne enthusiastically agreed and Travelous officially established into a travel brand geared towards creating the type of experience that they both felt passionately about. The result is Travelous - 'Your Private Tour Architects'.
Travelous Tour Architects specialize in tour management and itinerary design. With a vast wealth of knowledge and professional expertise from leisure groups to luxury bespoke private guided travel, we are that collective of seasoned voyagers with unbridled passion for helping people realize their ultimate vacation dreams. Whether you are the first time traveler or the veteran explorer, Travelous will create your story.
"We are travelers who have the desire to share our experiences with others. Today, the travel blogger has become the gap between the traveler and the travel company. Yvonne and I working together is simply the direction the industry is going in. People want their information from their fellow Traveler and not travel agents in order to help them in their decision-making and ultimately quench their thirst for adventure. It adds an air of authenticity to what we are doing."
The foundation of Travelous is your team of Private Tour Architects. Not just hired agents, they have personally lived in these countries, traveled extensively and explored the tours intimately, making them true destination experts. These are people who can tell you first hand, the best-kept secrets such as local restaurants, hidden beaches, family-run shops and uncommon excursions because they themselves have been there. Anyone can hire a tour guide or follow a map, but Travelous will show you the world in a deeper, more meaningful way.
At Travelous, we believe that the world was meant to be explored intuitively and personally; not dependent on strict schedules. Nor is it time spent with strangers on crowded buses, or following a guide who doesn't even know your name and is robotically regurgitating the same speech over and over. Travelous was created to bring the ends of the earth to your fingertips in the way you have always dreamed; the way you wish to experience it and the only way that's worth it - your way.
You dream it, we plan it. Your excursion is 100% customized and 100% personalized based on your vision so you can be Travelous!
YOU DREAM IT, WE PLAN IT.
YOUR EXCURSION IS 100% CUSTOMIZED AND 100% PERSONALIZED BASED ON YOUR VISION SO YOU CAN BE TRAVELOUS!
Yvonne Zaggermann is an award winning travel blogger (www.JustTravelous.com) and TV journalist who focuses on experiential and adventure travel. Where a guided tour focuses on the standard sights and general history, Yvonne seeks out the unique experiences of any destination by immersing herself completely into the local culture. Whether she falls off a camel in Oman, jumps out of planes in Costa Brava or is getting tattooed by a Buddhist monk, Yvonne truly showcases what it means to be in that part of the world at that given moment. Simply put, she is just Travelous!
