New online training from Guyana Tourism Authority

The Guyana Tourism Authority has launched its own online travel training course designed to introduce the international travel trade to one of the most emerging destinations in South America.

The course is designed to help the travel industry better understand the little-known country.

Guyana is one of the most undiscovered destinations in South America and is a country characterised by its bounty of nature, wildlife and birdlife, and its eclectic mix of cultures.

The leaps in sustainable tourism in recent years have propelled Guyana onto the international tourism stage and have opened up small communities to tourism, allowing visitors to get a meaningful and off-the-beaten-track experience.

With around 87 per cent rainforest cover across the whole country, its eco systems supports vibrant populations of some of the largest species on the continent and indeed the world, hence its moniker, the Land of Giants.

The aim of the course is for the travel industry to be introduced to the destination and to be equipped to sell the destination for the 2021 season and beyond.

The course is available here.
