Door2Tour.com Has High Hopes For Its Park Tours
Released on: April 28, 2011, 11:11 am
Door2Tour.com, the escorted tour consolidator, is hoping that
April's 2012 Olympic ticket application frenzy, which caused the
official site to stall and the deadline to be extended for an extra
hour, will rejuvenate interest in tours to London's Olympic Park.
The escorted tour consolidator
offers coach tours to the Park with a number of tour operators over more than 25
departure dates between June and January 2012. Tours have been on sale since autumn
last year, and while there has been steady interest in those wishing to visit the
East End venue since the start of 2011, packages to annual events such as the
Wimbledon and Royal Ascot have so far outsold those to the Park four-fold.
Major factors likely to have diluted initial interest are the Royal Wedding and the
incompletion of the Stadium, which was under construction until 29th March. It is
expected that with patriotism riding high, the last piece of turf laid down in the
Stadium and Olympic ticket payment imminent, all eyes should revert to the 2012
Kate Glanfield, web manager of Door2Tour.com commented: "Now that the ticket
deadline has bought the Olympics to the forefront of people's minds, and after the
excitement of the Royal Wedding, we should start to see a rejuvenated interest for
Olympic Park tours. We're expecting this to increase by June especially, when
applicants will find out for sure whether their entries have been successful. As
we've seen with the Royal Wedding and our other events, the real peak is expected
in the run-up to the Games themselves."
Visitors taking an Olympic Park tour can enjoy a sneak-peak of the Park before it
opens, get to watch the development unfold from the VIP viewing gallery and learn
about how the project is transforming the capital.
Kate concluded: "With the Royal revival, the recent hot weather and the Olympics on
the horizon, now's a brilliant time to be British."
