Our official name is "1987 The Travel Group Ltd."  The original agency was called TFC Tours, which specialized in travel to southern Africa.  This was a multi-national company founded in the 1970s, with branches in Johannesburg, London, and Vancouver.   We purchased the Vancouver office in 1987 and changed the name to The Travel Group.
