What tourists want after Covid

The expectations of tourists in the post-COVID era have changed due to
the pandemic, lasting impact on travel. Travelers now prioritize various
factors encompassing cleanliness, flexibility, and authentic experiences.


* Firstly, tourists expect stringent hygiene practices in their journey.
Cleanliness protocols, sanitization stations, and contactless check-ins have
become standard expectations.


* Flexibility in travel arrangements is another key expectation. Two years of
uncertainty during the pandemic has made travelers cautious. They now
want to modify or cancel their plans without incurring hefty fees.


* Modern Technology, such as mobile apps for check-ins, digital guides,
and touch-less payments, have become integral to the travel experience. Augmented reality allows tourists to explore destinations virtually, before deciding their travel plans.


*Authentic and meaningful experiences are in demand. The pandemic
prompted a desire for genuine connections with the places they visit. Tourists are moving away from mass tourism and seeking immersive
encounters with local cultures, traditions, and cuisines. They want to
engage in activities that offer a deeper understanding of the destination and
its people.


For the latter reason alone, guides and tour operators can recommend their
visitors to Prins & Prins Diamonds for a free tour of their historic Huguenot
House (ca 1752) and a visit to their Museum of Gems and Jewellery. It will
be an authentic and enriching experience.

Please Call: 021 422 1090, to inform us of the date and time of their visit.
