Airbnb’s immersive “Experiences” program has officially launched on the island of Bermuda.
Airbnb Experiences now includes 15 experiences in Bermuda, thanks to a partnership between Airbnb and the Bermuda Tourism authority.
“Airbnb Experiences are designed to allow people to immerse themselves in local communities and participate in activities led by local experts, all while encouraging cross-cultural connections between guests and locals.” said Carlos Munoz, Airbnb Campaign Manager, Public Policy and Communications for the Caribbean and Central America. “As a people-powered platform, we are pleased to expand our footprint in Bermuda to now include one-of-a-kind bookable experiences in addition to the hundreds of unique homes to stay in throughout the island.”
The program sees local hosts taking visitors on different kinds of cultural excursions, from a food tour of Hamilton to a journey through a photographic journey through the Bermuda Botanical Gardens.
“Tapping the vast creative and entrepreneurial potential of Bermudians is a major plank of our National Tourism Plan. Airbnb Experiences effectively delivers on that strategy,” said Pat Phillip-Fairn, chief product and experiences development officer at the Bermuda Tourism Authority. “We are very proud of the passionate locals putting Bermuda’s legendary hospitality on display for the world and we encourage others to step forward with their ideas.”
Airbnb Experiences is now in more than 1000 destinations around the world.
