The Walkgard Transit Hotel | 360° Virtual Tour of Hotel in Bukoba, Tanzania

The Walkgard Transit Hotel in Bukoba, Tanzania now has a 360° virtual tour created by 360° Kiroyera Tours. The virtual tour is part of their Virtual FAM Trip initiative that seeks to promote tourism in Tanzania through the use of virtual reality.

What are FAM Trips?

The term FAM stands for Familiarisation. The Tours – commonly known as FAM Trips – are trips organised by travel providers (can be a Tour Operator, an Airline, a Hotel Chain, a Tourism Board or other DMOs representing a Destination, etc.) with the purpose of educating about their products & services and promoting them.

Usually it is dedicated to everyone who is involved in the selling and promoting process of this particular product/ property/ destination. It typically hosts travel agents and travel media (writers, journalists, bloggers) and other important players & partners.

Creating awareness and at the same time networking and building relationships are the main aims of a FAM trip.

FAM´s are very important in the hospitality industry. Basically speaking if the travel agent knows and likes your property (and the location), he will book his clients into it. FAM´s are usually FOC (free of charge) or available at a discounted fee.

Patrick Landman, CEO and Founder of Xotels

The free or discounted nature of FAM Trips makes them expensive to offer to a large number of travel agents and media. That means a lot of places miss out on the FAM Trip opportunity. 360° Kiroyera Tours seeks to be the affordable FAM Trip alternative. It’s not same as a real FAM Trip, however it allows travel agents to become familiar with a lot more places than they could physically visit through traditional FAM Trips.
