Hosted Tours owner Brad Somers has opened for business in a kiosk on Lincoln Avenue at Seventh Street. Somers has run Hosted Tours mostly online for four years. The ski instructor also is a licensed travel agent. He's been in Steamboat Springs for seven years.
Somers calls his kiosk the Adventures and Lodging Center. He books lodging and activities for visitors.
"I'm kind of a one-stop booking agent," Somers said. "You can book it all."
He refers to Hosted Tours as a personal concierge service. Somers opened in the spot about June 20.
"It's been real good for me being able to be down here and not just be an online business," he said.
Hosted Tours can be reached at 970-870-7901 or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Somers' Web site is www.hostedtours.com.
