Genoa is becoming an even more appreciated and important city for Tourism both thanks to the territory promotion and the large arrivals from the cruises.
On ASCOM website, we can see that the number of the ships that arrive to Genova is almost one a day (28 arrivals only in April 2019!).
There are a lot of comfort to choose a cruise, even if often some activities are supposed to be very static and binding by the passengers. So the question: "Cruise yes or not?"
To entrust cruise passengers to a local patner help to create for every group a perfect service about every desires and needs.
Genoa is a frequently stop for cruises and for this reason it could become monotonous without finding its beauties.
It is possible to diversify experiences based on the season, climate and activities.
A well-built partnership between shipping companies and local experts allows the company itself to offer its customers an infinite number of diversified experiences, thus differentiating themselves from the more tourist routes, supporting the uniqueness of the offered service.
2019 is a year of record about cruise's arrivals. We have had excellent experiences with groups that have chosen to entrusted us for different excursions without the stress of a do-it-yourself organization and without the obvious risks it can bring...you know, at the scheduled time, the ship sails and you have to be already on board.
Recently, we worked for a 250 Oriental guests that travelled in convention company.
Such a high number can be frightening, but with five well organized buses, the guests could visit Genoa from above, take a walk in the historic center among the first rays of spring sunshine and we have organized, exclusively for them, a tasting of meatloaf, cakes of vegetables, panissa and cuculli in the wonderful Diocesan Museum where the CEO gave a speech in an exceptional setting.
The next cruise passengers will be 135 English person who have preferred a trip in Tigullio. They will be transferred with guides and coaches reserved to Santa Margherita where they will embark for Portofino, a typical lunch in the small square, a brief stop in Camogli on the return and they will be punctual to boarding .
Then a group of 100 Swedish bakers interested in discovering the secrets of the Genoese focaccia and eager to taste the famous wines of southern Piedmont. We will offer them a day of tasting in the spectacular setting of the Grillano Castle and a typical light lunch overlooking the vineyards. We can't wait to amaze them.
It is also very interesting for us to notice the differences between the requests of the various travelers. The groups that face a cruise today are still more informed, they know what await in the various stages and they try to rely on competent tour operators without being passive spectators, as in the collective imagination of the 90s, but becoming guests who know how to choose.
Depending on the origin of the various travelers, our region offers truly diversified experiences, for those who prefer to discover the history of Genoa, or take the opportunity to visit the famous Cinque Terre, or spend a few hours in the characteristic little square of Portofino.
Supporting a travel agency with shipping companies allows them to offer their guests a complete and professional service, having at their disposal and offering a team of professionals, profound experts of the places and possibilities of a territory that is sometimes difficult but rich of treasures.
