A TWO-DAY Tour Operations and Tour Packaging Seminar is set to be held in Zamboanga City by the Department of Tourism (DOT).
DOT Regional Director Mary June Bugante said the seminar, which will be held starting Thursday until Friday, is aimed to train and refresh travel and tour agencies on tour operations and on effective customer services when catering to tourists who come and visit Zamboanga Peninsula region.
Bugante said the demands of package tours are increasing with the growing international and domestic tourism traffic.
One of the seminar's resource speakers and guests is Great Sights Travel and Tours Corporation managing director Paul So, whose firm is a DOT accredited travel agency based in Metro Manila
So's firm specializes in the following: seat-in-coach tours; local, inbound and outbound tours; adventure and incentive tours; cruises, scuba diving and travel insurance; ticketing and hotel reservations worldwide; air, sea, land and rail reservations worldwide; passport, visa and immigration documentations; and, transportation rental and interpreter services.
Interested individuals who plan to put up a travel agency are welcome to join the two-day seminar for free, Bugante said.
The seminar will be on a “first-come, first serve,” she said, adding that only 35 slots are available.
