Tooltip display when an actionable item is focused is fine. There are NO warnings otherwise about it in Success Criterion 1.4.13. What you do not want to do is have any actionable items within the tooltip since tooltips cannot receive focus.

By 'dummy tab' you mean placing that link directly onto the surface, in lieu of a tab? Yes, that is preferable to my mind. It presents crisper, more direct navigation: Your link doesn't need to be discovered beneath a tab that presumably has to hint at the presence of a link, which is superfluous... unless your hyperlink is extremely long and for some reason ...

Yelp uses both a box ...

Given you have a number of links and depending on how many of those links your users are likely to want to visit, adding a target="_blank" in order to open in a new window and keep the focus on the current one could be nice. I'm not a huge fan of in-between pages, seems ...

As said in http://ux.stackexchange.com/a/127688/32746, worry about showing the "click" word to people who tap: <a href="">Know more information about the trips</a> Visually impaired will be told that it's a link.

You avoid "click here" because not every user will be using a mouse (especially now so many people use touchscreens and "tap") and just use the anchor with sensible text that can stand alone when presented out of context. <a href="">More information about the trips</a>.
