CRUISE TOURS BENELUX
We are Cruise Tours Benelux – the one stop shop for all your Destination Management needs!
When looking for a partner do you look for the creativity and fresh look of a start up, or the experience of an established player? We proudly enjoy the best of both worlds; founded in early 2019, we are still a relatively new company, however our team has been part of the industry for years. We are a group of imaginative and competitive people who like to work hard and achieve results. A vision and mission don’t define us, we simply just love what we do and love having an opportunity to do it.
We are the next generation of Destination Management; fresh, personal and hungry for a challenge! Companies always boast that they think outside the box. Well we took that box, crushed it and put it in the recycling! Our preferred approach is always very personal and this is probably our biggest strength. We get to know our clients so we can anticipate their needs rather than react to them. Since we always have their best interest in mind; its easy to guarantee the service and quality that our clients expect.
Cruise Tours Benelux does anything and everything related to being a tour operator to cruise lines and services surrounding the Meetings & Events world. But please don’t box us in with labels; we are here to help you! If you have plans but don’t know how to make them a reality, give us a call.
