Tourism investment begins to bear fruit

Adventure Garden Route drivers Alewijn Dippenaar and Mimi Finestone attended the MITT Tradeshow in Moscow during March 2019 which lead to them hosting a group of journalists during May and June.

The first article to come from this investment has appeared in The Wedding Magazine (Ukranian version).

There will always be a first for many exciting adventures & opportunities! Just love this thing called the tourism trade! So about my last two days – From Russia with love.

Thank you Alewijn Dippenaar from Adventures Garden Route and Mimi Finestone from interface by Goji for the contact your companies made at the MITT Tradeshow in Moscow earlier in March. Because of your passion for tourism, we had the opportunity to show off our beautiful town to 6 Russian media representatives to write about Adventure Tourism and Wedding & Leisure Tourism.

Knysna welcomed Yuliia Isakina, chief editor of the World of Tourism magazine, Oksana Malaniuk, journalist of the Wedding Magazine (Ukrainian version), Nataliia Kyiashko, editor of the travel portal, Oleksiy Chebotarov, journalist at the travel website, Oleksandr Kyiashko, group photographer that co operates with MT Media Publishing House and Igor Malaniuk, a journalist of the most popular website.

To all the Knysna tourism stakeholders – WOW, WOW, WOW! Thank you from my heart for giving this your best for our town – I am so incredibly blessed to be part of this #SpiritofKnysna energy! I cannot wait for all the publicity and awareness our town is going to receive and are so excited to share!

I think the group are taking the best memories home to Russia – South African Food Bites & champagne at Head Over Hills, the Knysna Heads walk with Helen Persello, local craft beer tasting at Red Bridge, checking in and experiencing the pristine Blackwaters River Lodge & Mashie Golf CourseWeddings at Blackwaters River Lodge, awesome seafood dinner and wine at Featherbed’s Cruise Cafe, whale watching and eco tour with Ocean Odyssey and ending off this afternoon with a great lunch and wine pairing at Turbine Boutique Hotel.

Visit Knysna, thank you for your surprise welcome packs, Ypie Kingma and Olga for translating and off course, two of our top photographers (and we have many) Alfred Lor and Andrew Aveley .

Special thanks to Pam Snyman from Upclose and Personal Tours for the transport of the group.
