Audio Guiding- NEW for summer 2013
Aeolos Travel is proud to present a brand new excursion experience for summer 2013!
Members of the Aeolos Team took part in a trial of a brand new audio guiding system that allows visitors to explore key tourist sites at their own pace and still benefit from expert local insights and information.
The specially designed system combines GPS technology with a hand-held personal audio guide and is the ideal choice for today’s independent traveller. Aeolos staff tried out a Nicosia walking tour which allowed them to visit some of the capital’s key points of interest, learn about the city’s fascinating history and discover places off the beaten track.
The audio-guiding system is due to be launched for select excursions in Spring/Summer 2013
Teaching green living
As part of an ongoing commitment to promoting environmental awareness and sustainability, Aeolos Travel is helping young people in Cyprus do their bit for the environment.
In a bid to teach local youngsters about the importance of recycling waste Aeolos Travel donated recycling bins to a Paphos primary school. Inland Tours Manager Xenios Xenonfontos presented the staff and pupils at Kissonerga Primary school with the bins for paper and plastics. This latest move forms part of an ongoing project to both create sustainable tourism products and to encourage environmental awareness in the local community
