Following several activities in the Spanish holiday market last year and early this year, a group of leading travel and tour operators from Spain visited the Seychelles last week. The eight-day trip was arranged by the Seychelles Tourism Board in conjunction with Air Seychelles and Iberia and Beachcomber Hotels.
The visitors had the opportunity to get acquainted with the main island of Mahe and also visited other islands on the archipelago like Praslin, Silhouette, and St. Anne to gain a greater insight into the range of resort facilities available. An ocean cruise with Silhouette Cruises was also on their program, giving them ample experience of the activities available for visitors to the Creole islands and the quality of hotels and resorts.
It is understood from Seychelles Tourism Board sources that invitationals for leading tour operators and travel agents from key existing and emerging markets will continue across the year, as will visits for press and media organizations to keep the destination firmly in the spotlight as one of the most desirable places in the world to visit.
