FACES OF GRAY LINE Dane Bono, Gray Line New Orleans
Background Dane first started with Gray Line New Orleans in 2002 as a group sales coordinator and has since moved up to his current role as Tour & Travel Manager. Gray Line was Dane's first professional job! Prior to Gray Line, he spent most of his college days in the service industry, including a stint at one of New Orleans' most famous restaurants, Commander's Palace.
Travel Dane and his wife honeymooned in Italy and Greece two years ago saying it was absolutely majestic. They are hoping to make their way to Spain later this year!
Dane loves taking clients on the Gray Line tours throughout New Orleans! Be it city tours, plantations, swamps, or of course, the Cocktail Walking Tour, one of his true pleasures is helping clients Find a Reason to Go. To Dane, people make a good experience great; and Gray Line has the best people to make someone's Bucket Life experience a memorable one.
The most important piece of advice Dane has for others in the industry is patience! "No matter how many times you may have sold a certain tour or package, remember that it's the first time for the client. Always treat it that way."
Outside of Work Dane and his wife recently moved from New Orleans to Denver, so they're soaking in everything their new life has to offer- hiking to 12,000 feet, kayaking the local lakes, etc. And as a musician for the last twenty years, he loves to soak in as much of the live music scene as he possibly can!
