G Adventures live virtual tours of Morocco kick off tomorrow, 24 February at 4.45pm
Always looking for new ways to educate and inspire agents and travellers, G Adventures has partnered with Heygo, a travel-specific live streaming platform, to launch a new series of live tours in destinations around the world. Hosted by a G Adventures Chief Experience Officer, the tours will take the virtual audience around iconic destinations, offering a local insider’s view and the opportunity to interact live.
Participants have the option to donate, with 60% going to G Adventures’ non-profit partner, Planeterra, helping to support local communities around the world.
The live tours will kick off in Morocco with the G Adventures Morocco Roadtrip Series, running throughout February and March on Heygo.com.
Agents can join Chief Experience Officer, Mustapha, as he takes them on a live journey of some of Morocco’s most iconic locations. Starting with historic Aït Ben Haddou, Mustapha will take participants through the historic UNESCO World Heritage site, located in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. The series will also include a tour of Marrakech’s famous medina to source ingredients for Marrakech’s signature dish – the Tajina Marrakechia, as well as the opportunity to explore the architectural wonders of the Bahia Palace.
