It would be the understatement of the year to say that 2020 has been tough, and you’re probably reading/hearing this more than enough, so let’s skip this part.
But it’s true, our lives have turned upside down to say the least: Lockdowns, restrictions, Stage 1,2,3,4, Step 4,3,2,1, curfew, quarantine, face masks, community transmission, vaccine, virus, new cases, rolling average, and so on and so on… my God! Can’t we talk about something else? Can’t we, at least for a day (or few hours), experience something different and come out of this nightmare?
Undoubtedly, the lack of human interaction, and of the usual camaraderie in the work environment has impacted our humour, our mental health, our souls.
BUT HERE COME THE GOOD NEWS,
Although it’s not over, we are beating this! Yes Victorians, we are beating this! It’s time to celebrate, and before Christmas we will be living a sort of normal. A new normal, a COVID-normal.
Let me introduce Hit the Road Tours and what we are offering.
The company was founded in June/2018 and in the last couple of years has experienced a massive growth. Thanks to an aggressive approach, we’ve disrupted the industry offering well planned small groups tours on a friendly and safe atmosphere. As result, the company has been awarded the Best Small Groups Tour Operator in Melbourne by the Business Excellence Award Magazine for two consecutive years (full article here), passing the 1,000 five-star reviews at TripAdvisor and receiving the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice 2020.
In 2019 the company has run more than 1,100 tours and approximate 12,000 pax have travelled with us – an indication of our bandwidth.
We are a Quality Tourism Accredited Business and a Covid-Clean Practicing Business, both certifications received from Quality Tourism Framework Australia.
The business has been badly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis for obvious reasons, and as we are planning to reopen in November, it came to my mind good memories of the company’s last year Christmas Barbecue and I was wondering what to do to re-engage with the team (we are a group of 15 certified tour guides not allowed to work since March), and what would be the best options for a safe, funny, informal and relaxing get together to celebrate the restart of the business. As I’ve opened the conversation in our WhatsApp group, so many great ideas came to mind, a diversity of options of things we could do together to celebrate the reencounter, that we were blown away with the list. And we still didn’t take the final decision as the options are too good 😊.
So, looking at this list I thought: how many business in Victoria are now feeling exactly the same thing we are? How many managers, leaders, business owners, are not thinking exactly the same thing?
To help them, we’ve just created a fresh from the cooker portfolio of experiences: Let’s Celebrate the Reencounter!
It’s an endless list of options to combine the Christmas/End of Year Celebrations with the return to the work on an “almost” normal environment.
But also, we are conscious that money is short, the country is in recession, ok, we get that. The itineraries and experiences were priced in a way to make it affordable to any business size.
Few examples of the Let’s Celebrate the Reencounter possible experiences:
And the best part: Hit the Road Tours deliver the service and expertise across this diverse range of experience options. Just let us know what your team/group is more inclined to do and we will take care of the rest.
Our team of certified tour guides are very keen to hit the road again, provide great services and create unforgettable experiences to our customers. This is what we’ve been doing in the last years and have been highly awarded for.
Well, the options are open and the sky is the limit (literally). We are taking full refundable bookings and in terms of timeframe, expecting to be allowed to operate these experiences in the second half of November.
The window for bookings will be very short and these venues are most likely to sold out soon as they will be running at reduced capacity. The sooner we plan and make the reservations, the better.
