Has anyone heard of the Package Tours company? I like their prices but I am having a hard time finding reviews on the web.
Never heard of them. If there are no reviews on the web it could mean they are relative new. New tour companies spring up all the time and unfortunately 90% of them close down again within 5 years. Choosing a company that has bonding insurance may give you some peace of mind that if anything happens, you cannot lose any money you paid upfront. All SATSA members are fully bonded (and you can verify a company's membership status by contacting SATSA). For a new company without a track record, sometimes the only way they can get a foot in the door is by offering the lowest rates, undercutting established operators and hoping to lure customers that way. So I would say don't make a decision based on price alone. I would search for the company by name on Tripadvisor to see what reviews they have, and also ask for contactable references of previous clients before you book. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip. I tried to reach them before I posted this and they haven't responded. They are probably already out of business.
