Unusual business idea on Portuguese travel market

As we all know more then 80% of information we receive through the eyes. If due to some reasons this channel is closed, then other organs of sense become much more sensible. We try to form a true notion of the world by using sense of touch, smell, hearing and taste. This well-known physiological fact was used to create a very special tourism product – sensorial walking tours in Lisbon, Portugal.

The tour presented by local travel agency Cabracega is called Sensorial Lisbon. Tourists get blindfolded and blind guides take them for a walk to Alfama district – the ancient part of the city. During the tour guide tells a story about Lisbon’s history and tourists carefully follow their feelings: catch the smell of fried sardines from street cafes, touch hot stone walls of ancient houses, taste local specialities in restaurant, lend an ear to a mysterious sounds of national song – fado etc.

Tour costs 120 EUR for 1.5 hour and you should order it in advance as groups are rather small – up to 10 persons. The idea is so innovative and tempting that these tours gained popularity not only among tourists, but also among local citizens. People enjoy unknown feelings and travel agency’s owners – growing profits!

Captain’s Welcome Address In-Flight

This is your captain Welcoming both seated and standing passengers on board of our Airlines.

We apologize for the four-day delay in taking off, it was due to bad weather.

This is flight 717 to unsure Airport. Landing there is not guaranteed, but we will end up somewhere in the country. And, if luck is in our favour, we may even be landing on your village!

Our Airlines has an excellent safety-record. In fact, our safety standards are so high, that even terrorists are afraid to fly with us!

It is with pleasure; I announce that, starting this year, over 30% of our passengers have reached their destination.

If our engines are too noisy for you, on passenger request, we can arrange to turn them off!

We regret to inform you, that today’s in-flight movie will not be shown as we forgot to record it from the television. However, for our movie buffs, we will be flying right next to MEA Airlines, where their movie will be visible from the right side of the cabin window.

There is no smoking allowed in this airplane. Any smoke you see in the cabin is only the early warning system on the engines telling us to slow down!

In order to catch important landmarks, we try to fly as close as possible for the best view. If however, we go a little too close, do let us know.

Our enthusiastic co-pilot sometimes flies right through the landmark!

Kindly be seated, keep your seat in an upright position for take-off and fasten your seat-belt. For those of you who can’t find a seat-belt, kindly fasten your own belt to the arm of your seat. And, for those of you who can’t find a seat, do not hesitate to get in touch with a stewardess who will explain how to fasten yourself to your suitcase.”

“Thanking you all for choosing our Airlines to fly for the first and last time”

Wish You a nice trip,
Captain
