DetourOnA simpler way to travel




 
   

In her late teens and early twenties, Dolev Schreiber's passion was to see and experience the world. She embarked on many month-long expeditions, all of which started without any plans. Once arriving at a destination, she asked locals and tourists alike about places to visit, and started formulating her itineraries from there. This task was very time-consuming, and oftentimes stressful, which resulted in having to rush through her travels. This is where she realized that much value would be added to people’s travels if they had more time to enjoy their surroundings and spent less time fretting about where to sleep at night. Since then she has immersed herself in facilitating travel experiences for people throughout the world.

After getting a BS in Recreation with a focus on psychology and an MBA with a focus on the service industry, she worked for 7 years as a tour guide in the Southwestern United States, Hawaii, and Israel. This was followed by two years of operations management of a tour operator, creating and making reservations for multi-day itineraries for groups and individuals visiting North America. During this period, the most common request she received was to create customized self-guided itineraries for independent travelers. She realized that she was not alone in her quest for a simplified travel planning experience. Thus DetourOn was born.
