1. Why do people choose to coordinate their travel through Ludus Tours rather than their neighborhood travel agent?
People prefer to coordinate their travels through Ludus Tours over their neighborhood travel agent because the Ludus Team is comprised of sports savvy, passionate professionals with a genuine love of traveling. Here at Ludus, we create an authentic appeal to our events: something that your typical travel agent often lacks. Our staff have been to the events we sell packages for, loved their experiences, and decided to help you experience that same magic. The Ludus team have played sports all their lives and take a genuine interest in the success of your trip because we are just as excited to be at the event as you are! When you combine our traveling expertise with our love of sports, you get the Ludus touch.
2. What are some examples of events you've participated in around the world through your involvement with Ludus Tours?
One of the coolest things of this job is getting to go to all of these amazing bucket list events--and it's part of the job. I've got to sit down and watch the Closing Ceremonies of the Olympics and also run with the bulls in Pamplona! Our events are what really set us apart. We carefully select experiences where we have insight and passion. Things like the World Cup in Brazil and the Summer Olympics are typically staffed by former athletes who can bring something extra to the table.
3. What are the benefits of attending a big sporting event like the Super Bowl or the Olympics with a group travel package arranged by Ludus Sports?
The benefits of attending a big sporting event with a group travel package arranged by Ludus Sports is that you get seasoned travelers combined with passionate sports fans. We love our events and we love what we do. This will ensure that you get the ultimate travel experience.
4. Do you create unique tour events/packages based on the specific interests of particular individuals or groups?
We do create unique tour events/packages based on the specific interests of particular individuals/groups. Based on our collectively extensive travel experience, we know that not all trips are created equal. For instance, if you are an avid soccer fan and you want to attend the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, you may want to catch a couple of matches in a number of different host cities. We are happy to build out that package for you. On the other hand, maybe you want to explore Rio de Janeiro exclusively, World Cup games and all. The Amazon River, Christ the Redeemer, the Sugarloaf Mountain? It's done. We've got the perfect packages for you!
5. How did you personally get involved with Ludus Tours, and what are some events you're looking forward to over the next couple of years?
I got involved with Ludus Tours after I graduated from the University of San Diego. I've been a passionate soccer player/fan all my life, and I jumped at the opportunity to become part of a company that sells World Cup packages. It's truly a dream come true. Soccer aside, I'd love to check out the Summer and Winter Olympics. It would be exciting to be around such a buzzing atmosphere surrounded by the top athletes from all over the world. In addition, Carnaval, Pamplona and Oktoberfest have always been on my personal bucket list. Ludus Tours can turn my dreams into reality.
