TORONTO — Royal Irish Tours (RIT) is going virtual for its upcoming fam trip to celebrate St. Patrick’s Month.
Taking place March 15 at 1:00 p.m. ET, Canada’s leading tour operator to Ireland will take participants on a two-hour tour that follows its three-night itinerary of Northern Ireland. Agents will get to experience Belfast, Derry-Londonderry and the Causeway Coastal Route, all without leaving the comfort of their homes. Special highlights include a live baking demonstration, a virtual tour of Titanic Belfast and the Walled city of Derry.
Two lucky agents will also win a trip on RIT’s next fam trip to Ireland, plus other prizes will be up for grabs for live attendees including four Irish gift baskets, pre-paid VISA gift cards, a two-night stay at the Europa Hotel in Belfast and a bottle of Bushmills Irish whiskey.
Ian Duffy, President of Royal Irish Tours, says the fam will provide agents with information and much-needed travel inspiration.
“During these times, we all need some travel inspiration for the future. This showcase of Northern Ireland will hopefully inspire agents to want to join our next in-person fam trip as well as give them some great ideas for their clients’ next trip to the Emerald Isle,” he says.
The fam trip is being hosted in conjunction with the tourist board and live presenters will include Jonathan and Orla from RIT who will serve as tour guides, as well as Conor Carberry from Tourism Northern Ireland and Karen Henderson of Visit Derry.
