How About an Italian Tour Right Now?
Italy has been devastated by COVID-19. And so has the tourism business. Yet some companies are doing their best to hang on and stay relevant.
My wife and I used LivItaly Tours during our visit last year to Italy. (My heart sinks when I think of the kind, generous people we met along our travels.) Last week, LivItaly tours launched an “Inside the Homes of Tour Guides During Lockdown” which according to the website “garnered quite an audience.” They are now extending the concept to include more homes. Each features a “lockdown” tour guide who is out of tours so out of work.
According the LivItaly website, “We will be interviewing a different tour guide each time to get an inside look at what life in lockdown is really like across the globe and share a bit of hope for the future.”
It’s such a wonderful way to keep the tour guides and company connected. It gives people a look inside the homes of tour guides and gives the tour guides hope there is employment after the crisis is over.
We are all looking for ways to connect and keep marketing for the future. So what do out-of-work tour guides do? They give tours of their homes and keep the connection alive. So if you travel to Italy, try LivItaly Tours. You can meet their guides online today — something I hope they continue doing after the crisis. You really get to know the tour guides with these home tours.
Toilet Paper Wars: In my last week’s blog, I talked about the toilet paper brand wars. but I needed to share this with you. HowMuchToiletPaper.com was created by Ben Sassoon, based in London. The tool calculates how long your stash of TP will last during the quarantine. I won’t tell you how many days we have, but let’s leave it I won’t be in line for the next pallet that is delivered to the store.
