Our Unique Philosophy

Our Founding Principles are quality performance, creativity and flexibility and our services reflect our customer’s interest, preferences, time-frame and budget. It has been our Main Principle from the beginning that HBI should not simply book and print tour itineraries, and robotically distribute pre-printed brochures. Personalised services and innovation make HBI a leader in the travel market. Compared to a general service Tour Company, HBI goes further and deals with the entire range of potential travel services.  We call our colleagues Travel Advisors who answer even those questions clients have not yet asked; our aim is to assist with the most useful advice, ideas, and information possible.Our young, dynamic professionals are a vital part of the organization who provide most professional services and are committed to ensuring that our customers enjoy the personal attention that they deserve.

 We are convinced that besides being sensitive to prices, people tend to choose their Travel Agency on the basis of reliability. We work with the most professional and dependable suppliers of land services at our destinations and it is our aim to provide passengers with the best advice and value-added trips worth their money. The purpose of our organization is simply, helping our customers get exactly what they want at the best value available.  Consequently, we are capable of providing an exceptionally complex range of products and integrated services for both individual and corporate clients in order to satisfy multi-faceted and heterogeneous demands. We believe that our goal, both professionally and financially, will be achieved by consistently exceeding our clients expectations.
