“As we commemorate International Tourist Guide Day tomorrow Wednesday, February 21, 2024, it is a perfect occasion to acknowledge and honor the vital role that tour guides play in our tourism sector.

“Tour guides are the heart and soul of our tourism sector, serving as ambassadors who not only showcase the beauty of Seychelles but also share our rich history, culture, and heritage with visitors from around the world.

“Beyond being knowledgeable about the destination, our tour guides possess the remarkable ability to connect with travelers on a personal level, ensuring their safety, comfort, and satisfaction throughout their journey. Through their professionalism and enthusiasm, they have the ability to elevate the overall tourism experience, encouraging visitors to return and recommend Seychelles to others.

“Their commitment and efforts significantly contribute to the success and growth of our tourism industry.

“Let’s come together to wish our Seychellois Tour Guides a Happy International Tourist Guide Day, recognizing their invaluable contributions to our tourism industry.”
