Tour operators, seeing the country with their own eyes, offer it to tourists much easier

The organization of promotional tours is an important component of the work of the Ministry of Resorts and Tourism of the Republic of Abkhazia.
There are many ways to promote a tourist product, but promotional tours are the most effective. Traditionally, they are held at the beginning of the holiday season. Thus, the employees of the ministry together with LLC “Aquamar” developed a program of the tour, which was held from April 26 to 30. The program included familiarization with the database of the hotels, sanatoriums, boarding houses and the main attractions of Abkhazia.
The tour began with a visit to the hotel "Napra" in Tsandripsh, then participants - employees of Russian tour operators, visited the guesthouses of Gagra and made a tour around the city. The second day was devoted to Pitsunda, where they visited the hotels "Litfond", "Sosnovaya rosha", "Samshitovaya rosha" and others. The next three days were devoted to familiarization with excursions and study of Novy Afon and Sukhum resorts. Visiting the village of Lykhny as well as the Abkhaz feast with the participation of folk ensemble caused particular emotions.
- This program included the greatest possible amount of cities, routes. Abkhazia – is an amazing country the sights of which are simply impossible to include in one sightseeing tour.
In this new program, we tried to present the republic from different sides: as a hospitable country with a unique culture, history, cuisine,” said Said Arshba the Head of the ministry’s Information support and image policy department.
- To such trips, already recommended travel agencies are invited. We also invite new agencies to participate in promotional tours, such cooperation always gives positive results. On April 13, an event like this was held for 15 employees of tour operator of LLC “Riviera-Sochi”. They were interested in the proposed route Sukhum - Kamana–Kındıg –Novy Afon –Duripsh, - said Deputy Minister Astamur Bartsits. According to his words, the main purpose of the tours is to give the participants the opportunity to learn as much as possible about the process of organization of recreation in various hotels and boarding houses, so that in future they would bring all this information to potential clients of their own tourism organization. “Tour operators, seeing the country with their own eyes, offer it to tourists much easier”- said A. Bartsits.
