Target Tours Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Summary: Target Tours announces its 10th anniversary as a full-service group tour operator based on Prince Edward Island.
(STRATFORD, PE) January 8, 2019 – From a corner of their basement in Morell, PE John and Lynn Dunphy set their sights on the world. The pair co-founded Target Tours in 2009 by offering bus tours to destinations such as New York City and NASCAR races. Much has changed since their start in their home office. The company now has an office in Stratford, PE and has over 26 team members that include office staff and guide staff who are located all over the Maritimes. The company now offers group fly tours to destinations in Europe, the United Kingdom, and beyond in addition to their traditional motor coach tours in North America. Apart from Target Tours’ growth in destinations, it has also expanded through acquisition and through the development of an additional brand, Target Tours Atlantic. Target Tours Atlantic welcomes groups and individual travelers to Atlantic Canada by providing tour services in all four provinces.
“Looking back on ten years it is hard to believe all that we’ve accomplished,” said Mr. Dunphy. “Travel is a dynamic industry where you have to be prepared to adjust to economic or global changes as well as tastes and trends. We’ve been able to navigate that to get us where we are today.”
To mark their decade in the industry, Target Tours held a private event for their past passengers from Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick at the Delta Prince Edward in September 2018. With more than 325 guests in attendance it was an excellent way to say thank you to the clients and suppliers who supported their growth and celebrate their achievements to date.

In 2019, Target Tours plans to continue the celebration with events to introduce interested travellers to the products they offer and more opportunities to learn about group travel.
Co-founder Lynn Dunphy adds “It has been an absolute privilege to take our guests to destinations all over the world. We don’t take it for granted that they choose us. We cannot wait for the new adventures, friends, and destinations we will discover together in the years to come.”
