The British Virgin Islands received a number of negative reviews from tourists to the Territory, following unpleasant trips to a number of local historical sites and venues.
As recorded in the minutes of the 2017 Standing Finance Committee deliberations, Acting Director of the National Parks Trust, Ms. Linda Varlack disclosed that the Territory received a number of undesirable criticisms from its visitors, due to an issue of overcrowding.
Ms. Varlack also mentioned that the visitors, along with recording their complaints, stated that their visit to the Territory was one in search of peace and tranquility.
She advised the committee, which is made up of legislators, that an assessment needs to be done to maintain and improve the general visitor experience.
Moving forward, Ms. Varlack stated that the Trust intends to implement a number of initiatives to address the problem of overcrowding.
She explained that the Trust will introduce a loop system for trails, which will hopefully reduce tourist traffic and allow persons to navigate the sites with much ease.
The Trust will also introduce timed and scheduled tours, as well as an additional ferry run in the afternoons, in effort to solve the problem at hand.
