Does the company have a large social media following? Also, check for reviews and ratings of the company on reputable travel blogs and websites.

It is important to also ask the tour company to give you their reference list. If a tour company has been in this industry for several years and they don’t have a reference list, that is a red flag and its best you avoid dealing with the company. It is important you give a call to some of their recent clients. You can ask them questions such as, if the tour company lived up to their expectation and the charges. If most of the responses you are getting about the tour company are positive, you can go ahead and deal with the tour company.
