We – the team from starkpartners – were exclusively mandated by the shareholders of a renowned tour operator to acquire a suitable strategic partner / investor for the takeover of the business shares and to accompany the transaction in the context of the upcoming company succession.

The core competence of the owner-managed tourism company is the planning and implementation of individual travel events of all kinds. With over 70 years of experience, the company has been able to establish itself as an important player in the German tourism market. Around 2,000 reliable and competent partner travel agencies in the DACH region attest to the quality and standards of the tour operator.


  • More than 40,000 satisfied and mostly returning customers per year
  • Approx. 80 very well trained and highly motivated employees throughout Germany, who stand for successful and competent advice and travel assistance
  • Broad portfolio of sophisticated and unique adventure tours
  • Comprehensive digitalisation of all travel processes through our own IT department

The company was also able to weather the pandemic very well due to its modern structures and optimised vertical integration. The current booking level and the advance bookings in 2022 show that the recovery in the travel industry has more than arrived. The shareholders had already dealt with the issue of age-related company succession before the pandemic and have now commissioned us to acquire a strategic investor.


We hope to have aroused your interest in the tour operator described and would be pleased to receive your feedback.

As part of the investor process, we will send you a confidentiality agreement. Upon receipt and in consultation with the parties involved, you will receive more detailed information on the process.

You can reach our project team for further information at any time at the e-mail address travel@starkpartners.de or by telephone at +49 (0) 2150 7058-210.
