The National Tourism Organization hosted a photographer and representatives of five tour operators from Turkey, who were on a study visit to Montenegro.
We are talking about the famous photographer Engin Uzun and representatives of some of the most important tour operators, who throughout the multi-day program got to know the tourist attractions of the Montenegrin coast.
During their stay, they had the opportunity to visit Podgorica, Bar, Budva, Kotor and Herceg Noviti to feel the combination of modern life and cultural and historical heritage.
The representative of the tour operator Travel&World Turkey – Murat Ayar, said that he has been promoting the Montenegrin coast, especially Budva, for years. He was particularly impressed by Perast, which he says is a very picturesque place that hides interesting stories and history.
– This time we had the opportunity to visit other beautiful parts of Montenegro, which suit our clients. Bar, Kotor, and Portonovi are also unique places, and the hotels we stayed in are really among the best. I must point out that the organization is very professional, and the local tour guides treated us very friendly and helped us a lot – said Ayar.
Diyaeddin Sahin, in front of the tour operator Peninsula Tours, points out that Montenegro is a real tourist country with a rich history and magnificent nature.
– Although we have organized tourist tours all over the world, we have never visited this beautiful country before. Bar and Kotor are beautiful cities, and the friendly and approachable people are a special delight for me. This is a truly unique country and we will try to include Montenegro in our programs in the future – said Sahin.
Representatives of tour operators said that our country has great potential, and they believe that many tourists from Turkey will come to visit Montenegro.
During the study visit, representatives of Turkish tour operators attended a business workshop within the project “Innovative cross-border cluster of small and medium-sized enterprises in the field of tourism – Innotourclust.” On that occasion, the representative of the NTO of Montenegro, Alijana Hećo, said that the business workshops were very useful, and that the members of the cluster had the opportunity to present their offer to tour operators from Turkey.
– NTO CG implemented the Innotourclust project in cooperation with partners from Italy and Albania, and members of the cluster had the opportunity to meet tour operators from Turkey and the Baltic countries at the business workshop and present their offer to them. We believe that such projects and initiatives are very useful, and in general the association of small entrepreneurs because it is a much better way to market their product on the international market – said Hećo.
The study visit was also supported by the strategic partners of NTO Montenegro – the Gold Travel travel agency and the national airline Air Montenegro, the local tourist organizations of Bar, Podgorica, Kotor and Budva, the Conte restaurant, as well as Portonovi.
