HOW IT ALL STARTED
People started travelling long ago. The first travellers were nomads and pilgrims, merchants and traders. They travelled along rivers, lakes and seas. The first travellers used simple means of travelling: boats and ferries on the water and camels in the desert.
The most famous travellers were explorers. Among them were Marco Polo from Venice in the 13th century, Afanasy Nikitin from Russia, Christopher Columbus and Vasco de Gama from Portugal in the 15th century, Magellan from Spain and Amerigo Vespucci from Italy in the 16th century, James Cook from England in the 18th century and other adventurers from Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, England and Holland. They made journeys to Asia, Africa and America.
Travel grew and developed as long as means of transport kept on growing.
With the 19th century the age of modern trains came. In the late 19th century the first motor-cars appeared.
The age of airplanes changed travel crucially. In the early 20th century jet planes emerged. They made air travel available to all people. Air travel is the fastest and the most convenient mode of travelling. No place in the world is more than 24 hours away by jet. Passengers eat, sleep, watch movies, listen to music on airplanes.
TOURISM IN THE 19TH CENTURY
In the 19th century tourism was mainly for the rich. They had enough money and spare time for travelling.
Not many working people in Europe had paid holidays.
Well-to-do people used to take tours to France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. They spent time at famous sea resorts in France. They went to health resorts and spas of Germany for recreation and treatment. They travelled to the resorts in the mountains of Switzerland and Austria.
In the early 19th century tourists used to travel by trains and steamships.
In the first half of the 19th century steamships used to move within inland waterways only. But in the second half of the century they started covering longer distances. The steamships carried passengers on all oceans and seas of the world.
THOMAS COOK COMPANY
Thomas Cook Company is the oldest travel company in the world. As a matter of fact, Thomas Cook from England opened the age of organized tourism.
It started in 1841 when Thomas Cook arranged the first trip for 570 Englishmen by railway.
In 1843 Thomas Cook organized the first group tour by train. This time he provided tourists with meals and tickets for the races. So it was the first package tour.
Later on Thomas Cook made arrangements for organized visits to the First International Industrial Exhibition. The Exhibition opened in London -in 1851. The tourists came from different parts of England.
All those were domestic tours. However, Thomas Cook decided not to stick to domestic tourism within his country only. Four years later, in 1855 he arranged the first overseas trip. It was a tour to the Exhibition in Paris. After that regular tourist trips started to other countries of Europe.
Thomas Cook continued expanding his travel business. In 1866 he arranged the first trip of two groups of Englishmen to the USA.
Thomas Cook set up the first travel agency.
Thomas Cook Company is still very active on the travel market. .It is both a tour operator and a travel agency. But now two German companies own it.
