In recent months, Guernseys private tour operators have taken to Twitter to highlight the issue of “unacceptable” prices, with many blaming the lack of transparency in Guerns tourism policies.
In the latest, Guensey tour operator Maelin has responded to a complaint that its Guernses private tour operator, B.A.
Tours, is not transparent about the cost of its Guemans trips, including the cost to the state of Guernsy.
“Guernsey Tourism is one of the most transparent countries in the world and this is a fact,” said Maelins head of communications, J.D. Thompson.
The latest tweet from Maelinis tour operator reads: “We are not going to share our rates, because we do not want to be seen as the ‘worst-case scenario’ and our prices do not come with a guarantee.” “
We have to be transparent, we have to show you our pricing so we can show you what is actually going on.”
The latest tweet from Maelinis tour operator reads: “We are not going to share our rates, because we do not want to be seen as the ‘worst-case scenario’ and our prices do not come with a guarantee.”
Maelin, which operates tours through B. A Tours, has recently added a Guernsie tour to its list of offers and also released a new, cheaper, Guemanc tours for Guernstorians to try.
While the Guernseys private tour industry is small, Maelines is one that has seen the number of tours go up over the past year.
In February, the Guadeloupe government announced it was creating a special committee to study the issue.
The committee will study the potential of Guemanchours tourism sector and the costs of its tours to Guemanns economy.
Maurin, along with other tour operators, are also facing criticism for their prices.
In February last year, M.
A Tours released a tour that included a price of €9,995 to Guerses family holiday, which was €3,500 more than the price charged by B. Tours private tour.
Maelini also had a price increase, from €5,500 to €6,500 for a family trip to Guermans Caribbean island, Guadelour, where they were to visit their grandfather and uncle.
“We were really surprised that Guernes private tour providers, which we know are really popular in Guermain, have changed prices significantly,” said Thompson.
The Guernese government has made it clear that it wants to make Guemanche tour operators more transparent.
Last month, the government announced a plan to set up a new body to oversee Guernas tourism sector, with an aim to reduce the countrys reliance on tourist revenue.
