Gliding towards exciting new ventures, Red Cat Adventures is thrilled to be announced as the first-ever Australian GetYourGuide ‘Originals’ tourism offering, proving that The Whitsundays is the place to be, and Red Cat Adventures can show you the best of what’s on offer.
The Whitsunday region and Red Cat Adventures has been carefully selected by GetYourGuide to be their first-ever ‘Originals’ product in Australia. This is an exciting accolade not only for Red Cat Adventures but for the entire Whitsundays region which will be further showcased globally as Australia’s premier bucket-list worthy destination made up of incredible natural beauty, iconic landscapes and memorable experiences.
GetYourGuide is a global booking platform for incredible travel experiences and GetYourGuide ‘Originals’ are the best-in-class tours, designed to delight at every turn, and is the ultimate way to discover the world’s top sights and attractions. Not every tour gets this status and for a Whitsunday business to be recognised is a win for the entire region!
The Whitsunday region’s huge growth and potential in tourism offerings coupled with the spectacular natural surroundings and environment, contribute to why it was specifically chosen over all other Australian areas including major cities like Sydney and Melbourne.
GetYourGuide and Red Cat Adventures have worked closely together over the last two years to deliver memorable and refined product offerings. During this time, Red Cat Adventures have demonstrated their focus and commitment to their customers, through a consistently high standard of service.
Red Cat Adventures have achieved huge successes already as a multi-award-winning tourism business, picking up the Best Major Tour and Transport Operator in Australia in 2018 and 2019. This dedication and heightened level of guest experience means Red Cats is the chosen supplier for the first-ever Australian ‘Originals’.
Red Cat Adventures owners Asher and Julie Telford are excited to work even closer with GetYourGuide and look forward to the launch of the new bespoke GetYourGuide ‘Originals’ tour in mid-February.
“We’re honoured and humbled to have been chosen to work alongside such a world-leading tourism platform. We’re excited to offer the new product to travellers to our region and can’t wait to launch the first GetYourGuide ‘Original’s’ tour in Australia. It’s an incredible opportunity for the business, the Whitsunday region and after such a tough year provides stability for our amazing crew,” they said.
Tourism Whitsundays Chief Executive Officer, Tash Wheeler said this achievement is a huge coup not only for Red Cat Adventures but for the entire Whitsundays region.
“This will cement our standing as the number one Great Barrier Reef destination to a global audience. It is the first time an Australian product has been chosen to be featured. And what a huge feather in our cap to be selected above some of the countries larger capital cities and tourism regions.
“This selection shows that even though our region may be smaller in size, we continually punch well above our weight in product offerings and customer service.
“I would like to congratulate Asher, Julie and their team. They work tirelessly to ensure The Whitsundays is showcased in such an incredible way, and this is yet another way to prove that,” Mrs Wheeler said.
From Instagram tours in Bali to exploring ancient Pompeii, GetYourGuide ‘Originals’ offer unforgettable experiences globally. To be an ‘Originals’ tour, a supplier must have 5-star guides and local aficionados.
With perfectly planned itineraries and superior transportation, customers also travel in small groups meaning a more interactive and personalised experience.
