Kay Hyde, Head of Communications, Make It York, said,
“Visit York is one of England’s most respected travel brands and as a top visitor destination it is crucial for us to protect and nurture our brand.
We work with travel writers and travel bloggers who understand the value of our brand and who are interested in working collaboratively with us. Claire was a pleasure to work with and has generated engaging and inspiring content about the city of York, inspiring a new generation of visitors to the city. By working with quality Travel Bloggers, we can maximise the impact of all of our social media activity, which forms a core part of our communications strategy. At every step of the process of working with Tales of A Backpacker, Claire was professional and a joy to work with. We would very much recommend her to any destination interested in increasing its profile to visitors.”
