In many tourism services and places, you’ll find the Bahamahost seal, which assures you a world class attention on your visit. Here are the details of this initiative of the ministry of tourism to assure the enjoyment of visitors.
DFrom 1978, the program has been developed by the touristic authorities of Bahamas with the goal of creating “ambassadors” of hospitality and good service. From then on, tens of thousands of people have graduated from this program and from 2009 it has the support of The College of the Bahamas and local consultants to assure that they are up to par with the many changes of the industry of tourism.
The program is made up of three blocks: My Bahamas, Professional Service Excellence, and Sustainable Tourism. My Bahamas is a tour across the history of Bahamas and its virtues, and its main goal is to create a connection with the identity of the country. Professional Service Excellence, as its name states, is all about specific trainings to optimize tourism services. Finally, there is a strong emphasis given to Sustainable Tourism and the importance to insure the national treasures of Bahamas for future generations. In total there are 40 hours of formation.
Sticker and plate
This is the easiest way to recognize those who have done the program. Generally, the personnel receive their plate or badge, while taxis get a sticker. They all show it with pride, since it has become an important brand of the country brand.
