Canadians Check Out Utah On Inaugural Specialists Fam

Five travel trade representatives from key Canadian and Australian tour operators — including WestWorld Tours & Women Xplorers and CAA-Quebec – who earned their certification from the new Utah Specialist Academy have just returned from a week-long fam trip to Southern Utah hosted by the Utah Office of Tourism with a goal of adding new Utah products and itineraries to their 2024 programs.

Leanne Haus, General Manager of WestWorld Tours & Women Xplorers – a first-time visitor to Utah – said of the trip: “Utah’s natural beauty and national parks were more impressive than I imagined they would be. I was struck by how all the parks are different in their own way and there is so much to see and do in each one. The glamping-style and unique accommodations available throughout the state were also a nice addition. I will definitely be developing a new Utah itinerary for our women’s hiking tours.”

This trip through Southern Utah’s natural wonders saw the tour operators hosted by Rocky Mountaineer on the new Rockies to the Red Rocks rail journey from Denver to Moab, then travel to Monument Valley, all of Utah’s Mighty 5 National Parks, drive Scenic Byway 12, and visit the city of St. George before flying home through Las Vegas, Nevada.
