In its bid to push for tourism economy in the ‘Sun Shine’ state, which is known for its unique endowments in different spheres, Destination Ondo has unveiled uniquely curated tour bus and car services for tour operators and allied service providers both domiciled in and outside the state for the purpose of tour operations within the state tourism circuit.

Over time, destination Ondo has continued to extend the frontiers of developing and promoting tourism business in Ondo State, with the introduction of innovative and creative product lines.

Speaking on this new development, the Founder of Destination Ondo, Otunba Wanle Akinboboye, is also the strategic consultant to Ondo State governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, on Tourism, said the new product line is aimed at addressing logistics challenges being experienced by tour operators in the state.

“The challenges of logistics experienced by most tour operators have been solved with the introduction of Destination Ondo bus and car services. The services are expected to run for the benefit of the tourists and tour operators.”

Akinboboye who is also the President of La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort, Lagos, further noted that the fleet of buses and cars already acquired for this purpose would be operated by professionally trained and skilled drivers, with tour guides, security personnel, entertainment and refreshment packages attached to each bus and car for the duration of the tour.

“Also, there is an option of a bespoke service, which is an all-inclusive package covering accommodation in a top-rated hotel of choice, food and drinks, tours, entertainment, nightlife shows and such other personalised services on request. To benefit from this unique offer, tour operators are only expected to sell the package and provide the tourists, while Destination Ondo takes up the duty of chaperoning the tourists and ensuring that they are avail of the best services on offer and a memorable experience of Ondo State that will last a lifetime.”

Since its debut over a year ago, Destination Ondo, with operational offices in Ondo town and Lagos, has introduced a number of creative and fun-filled products and services, which include Asun Carnival held last year in Ondo town, the first-ever carnival to be staged by a private concern in the state.

It also recently launched the carnival and festival costume making industry in Ondo town as part of making Ondo the capital and hub for carnival and festival costumes in Africa.
