TORREVIEJA’S tourist office located on the Paseo de Vista Alegre has been awarded first prize based on quality and service organised by the Valencian Tourism Agency. Under the scheme called Una Visita Feliz 2017 (A Happy Visit), Torrevieja and the office on the beach of Benissa came out equal top with an average score of 9.87 points.
Councillor Fanny Serrano, who attended the presentation in Elche with members of the office, said: “I have an outstanding team and I’m very happy and satisfied with my team that always have enormous smiles on their faces when they greet tourists to Torrevieja. It gives a wonderful first impression for many with up to a thousand people a day coming into the doors during the busy month of August and keep up the tradition of us being a friendly city that welcomes the whole world.”
Throughout the Valencia Community, 149 offices were evaluated through a series of anonymous and unannounced visits over certain periods of time and a questionnaire was completed by the ‘visitors’. The prizes were awarded to those offices that gained the highest aggregate score in the three evaluations.
