Tropical Tours was awarded the Private Tour Company in Samoa for 2023 by the Travel & Hospitality Awards, a United Kingdom-based program that globally recognizes the best hotels, tour operators, and experience providers amongst many other services within the tourism sector.
It is an annual travel celebration and awards are given based on the review of customer feedback alongside the company’s own collected data entry.
Trudy and Jimmy O’Dwyer’s journey has not been easy. Before their company even got off the ground, Covid-19 forced them to shut down. The award, according to Mr O’Dwyer means so much to him, especially since the work he is passionate about also resonates well with others.
“I was very overwhelmed with gratitude that Tropical Tours Samoa was selected as ‘The Private Tour company of the year in Samoa’ winner by the Travel & Hospitality Awards 2023. Tropical Tours were so honored to receive the recognition for this award, and we were both very humble to be nominated for this category.” he added.
The O’Dwyers acknowledged it was challenging during Covid-19 but they managed to hold on which made them more determined to get the operation back up to showcase Beautiful Samoa.
