The Department of Tourism Region 6 (DOT-6) will launch its new tourism product dubbed as the “Cruise and Drive Tours” this weekend.
The activity aims to connect the three islands of Western Visayas: Panay, Guimaras and Negros using roll-on/roll-off (RORO) vessels to carry tourists and their cars, rented vans, jeepneys and tour buses that are driven on and off the ship.
The Cruise and Drive Tours was introduced during the Experience Western Visayas First Grand Launch last March 2, 2014 at the Freedom Grandstand in this city through a two-minute audio-visual presentation.
Before its formal launching, a Critiquing Activity will take place first in a two-day, three-island tour within Western Visayas using three vans with DOT staff, tourism officers, tour operators, tour guides and media as passengers.
The final product will be a tour package exclusive for Cruise and Drive and will be distributed at the DOT foreign and regional offices, DOT-6, local government units, DOT accredited travel and tour agencies and promotional events among others.(PNA)
