How to achieve conversion - Tour Operator partnerships

Cruise Show London - huge turnout, and lots of bookings!Team-in-action-CruiseshowLondon2015- attending consumer shows is a great way to get our clients' brands in front of travellers. Working with established tour operators like Shearings Holidays, and Cosmos/ Archers (Britain's third largest tour operator group) achieved an impressive 25% conversation rate.

Croatia - Cruising around Dalmatian islands

A truly exceptional experience; seeing this magnificient destination from the comfort of an elegant cruise ship.

I have never been fond of these huge ocean cruisers; but this 100 cabin ship was just what the doctor ordered.

small enough to get close enough to each island and port, large enough for the 50 crew members to care for those 200 passengers.

the eight day cruise started and ended in Dubrovnik - what better place.

A newly discovered destination; Marrakesh, Morocco

20141217_084848In search of some pre-Christmas relaxation and a girly retail therapy Eyes2market’s UK Communications Director opted for the wonderfully atmospheric Riad Armelle (small hotel) within Marrakesh’s medina. 

What an exciting five day trip it was. Stepping out on our first night we were escorted to a wonderful restaurant which served eight exquisite vegetables starters infused with spices, followed by the obligatory, but delicious lemon, chicken tagine, our guide then escorted us back through the deserted medina to our hotel, before riding off on his bike to collect the next set of diners.

The next few days were a whirlwind of walking tours and adventures.  No men travelling with you; be prepared to be pestered quite a lot.  A firm no thank you to all the out of work young men offering to show you to the main square, or the closest museum usually works.

Make sure you get lost in the souk, sights, sounds, colours and aromas that take your breath away make this the highlight of any trip to Marrakesh.  If you stop to look at an item, be prepared to buy it!

The food, almost everywhere we eat was good, and sometimes outstanding, best of all were the pastry shops.

Make sure you include in your trip a visit to the Jardin Majorelle Exotic cactuses and couture in this garden formally owned by Yves Saint Laurent - jardinmajorelle.com.  Always include a day trip to the Atlas Mountains. Just an hour’s drive from down town Marrakesh and yet a lifetime away.  Quiet and serene the snow-capped peaks offer unparelled views.
