dot Travel Domains: What does your company do?
Christian Arteaga: www.christianarteaga.travel is a project that I created being myself a tourism consultant, with the aim to offer my professional services to designing unique travel experiences. I worked all my life in the tourism industry and have developed an extraordinary network of suppliers and professionals, now part of this project, that allow us to offer a complete range of services: you name it, we got it.
All of us are committed to making our clients live their experiences in Latin America in a safe and unique way. We offer our services through a Panamanian or a Peruvian company being physically based in both Countries. We have direct tour operation in Peru while we work with local tour operators in the other destinations so far offered (Panama, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Bolivia).
dot Travel: What is the business model?
C. Arteaga: Our business model is focused on the consultancy activity with Christian Arteaga expert in designing unique experiences for worldwide tourists visiting Latin America. We do not have fixed packages, instead we design personalized experiences based on a preliminary interview with the traveler where we get to know the person, his/her expectations and interests, the foreseen budget, the time he/she can dedicate to the journey, and other details (such as medical information, category of trip preferred, etc.) that we consider important to create a unique experience. Of course we could provide options of packages in case the client requires so.
At present we are operating in Peru and Panama through word of mouth of our first clients and look forward to selling also in Europe, United States, Australia, Canada and Central American Countries. Our aimed market is that of passionate travelers between 27 and 65 years old that we plan to reach through Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn as well as by investing in SEO and Google Ads in early 2018.
