Why Use a Receptive?
Branson's dizzying array of options and logistical demands make the services of a
local receptive vital to a group tour's success. Many travel professionals believe that using a receptive for
group tours to Branson is not an option; it's a necessity!
BRANSON RECEPTIVE: a local travel professional offering fulfillment services
to group travel planners and tour operators. When considering a Branson Receptive, make sure the company is a
member in good standing of the Branson Area Receptive Association. That's your best assurance for dealing only
with financially stable companies adhering to the highest standards of expertise, integrity, excellence in
business practices, and ethics beyond reproach.
More Branson - Less Work! Branson has more attractions, entertainment
choices and sightseeing opportunities than you are probably used to dealing with in your other destinations.
While that gives you more fun ways to package your tour, planning becomes more complex. This is where the
services of a local receptive become extraordinarily valuable. The receptive can rapidly acquaint you with all
Branson has to offer, then customize a package tailored to your desires.
Save Money! Because they deal in high volume purchases, receptives can
sometimes negotiate better prices. The nominal charges you pay for the services of a receptive are usually equal,
but more often less than you would pay when planning on your own. Besides paying higher prices, you would spend
much time and money on phone calls, research and troubleshooting. Your best value is to let your receptive do the
Avoid Disasters! Show times, traffic, winding roads--it all contributes to
making a Branson tour especially time-sensitive. Poor planning results in long lines, hurried meals, arriving
late at shows, and maybe even missing a train, boat ride or special event. The disaster to avoid - an exhausted,
disgruntled tour group! When a tour is planned well-it is well paced, restaurants are ready and waiting for your
group, passengers stay relaxed, well fed, well rested, entertained and eager to come back! Receptives can help
avoid disasters by booking accommodations and restaurants near your entertainment choices, and by planning the
schedules and short-cut traffic routes that will make all the difference.
You need a local connection! The receptive is your friend, your connection,
and your support group in Branson! It's someone who has probably tasted the food and been in the back kitchen of
the restaurant you are considering, someone who has seen your motel rooms and knows the staff personally, someone
who has seen all the shows first hand and can give you frank advice on what to expect. The receptive keeps
abreast of all the news and fast changing events in Branson. The receptive is a wealth of information on all
those local sights and unique features of the area that will be especially interesting to your group. The
receptive can offer those very suggestions you need to make your tour a success-whether it's ideas for free
excursions, tips on how to improve your tour, or info on the special new features of the season's shows and
attractions. Having a local friend means having someone to turn to should unforeseen problems or emergencies
come. And as you well know, come they sometimes do.
Your local receptive is right there in town with you, working in the background to
make your tour a success, leaving your escort free to concentrate on people, rather than details.
