If there is one common dream most of us have, it is to travel. In fact, for some, traveling is a lifeline that keeps them up and running, motivated to work all year round just so they can witness a pride of lions on an African safari or a historic landmark in Europe. The desire to travel, and the growing tourism industry across the globe, was what Greg Geronemus and David Rosner wanted to tap into when they embarked on their new venture, “smarTours”.
smarTours was originally founded in 1995, but Greg and David bought the company in 2013. Although the Harvard Graduates had a background in finance, they both loved to travel and wanted to operate a business that helped others fulfill their desire to do the same. When they came across the profitable and growing company, they made the leap and bought smarTours in 2013, and the rest, as they say, is history.Tours and Services
The key business model of smarTours is to sell international tour packages to some of the most opted for destinations in Asia, Africa, Europe, Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand. The company provides over 40 different tours across the globe all year round and primarily caters to travelers from the United States and Canada.
One of the critical advantages travelers receive by booking with smarTours is that since the company advertises direct-to-consumers (and not through travel agencies), the company offers some of the best services at the most reasonable rates. This makes smarTours an attractive tourism company to book travels with. smarTours also helps larger groups of travelers (alumni groups, student groups, intergenerational families, etc.) book tours, saving them time and money as well.
In addition to making a promising name across the globe, smarTours has also been featured in different magazines for its quality of services. Back in 2016, the company launched a new group of science-focused tours with ‘Popular Science’ magazine. This attracted several groups and educational institutions who reached out to smarTours for travel assistance. A year later in 2017, smarTours was recapitalized by Summit Park—a private investment firm based in Charlotte—which is expected to set the base for more prolific years ahead for the company.
