CHRISTMAS has been and gone, the New Year celebrations are over and there is now only one thing left to do; book your 2014 holiday.
Dreaming of foreign lands and browsing through dozens of glossy brochures as you choose your next break or holiday of a lifetime is the perfect post-Christmas remedy to beat the January blues and Falken Tours are ready and waiting to help and advise you every step of the way.
Established on the Costa Blanca in 1997, they have continued to serve holiday makers and tourists looking for a personal touch and a friendly face when booking their travel plans.
Owner Olaf Falkinowski is originally from Berlin, Germany. He has lived in Spain for 20 years, previously working in hotel marketing in Mallorca before moving to the mainland and working at Alicante airport for a year. Surrounded by the tourism industry his whole working life he decided to set up Falken Tours, which now has offices in La Marina, close to the Lidl supermarket just off the N-332 and in La Zenia, next to the Deutsche Bank.
From here he can accommodate your every travel wish whether you are simply wanting a flight to be booked and boarding passes printed off, or a family holiday of a lifetime and, despite the growing trend for cheap internet bookings, Olaf says a lot of people still prefer to deal in person: “There are people who do not feel comfortable buying over the internet, they do not have that personal contact or someone to ask and advise. We also have people that come in, find what they like and then look for it online but come back saying we are actually cheaper so the internet is not always the cheapest option.”
As members of IATA, the trade association representing and serving the airline industry world-wide, Falken Tours has access to a wide range of flights and packages. As well as Spanish clients, they have a lot of international customers from Scandinavia, Germany and Britain and the travel agency is pleased to be able to offer trips and tours with guides in your own language.
Falken Tours are cruise specialists and have everything from high end around the world cruises, to week long Mediterranean experiences. Already, there are limited places available on the 15 day Mediterranean cruise with Grand Celebration, departing from Valencia on October 25, 2014. A seven day Med cruise in October 2014 is also available, costing from €360 per person.
However, if you want to stay closer to home, Falken Tours also do tickets for Benidorm theme parks and the Benidorm Palace and offer travel insurance.
