OUR CLIENTS

Arizona - Our client since 2019

With so much to see and do in Arizona, it can be hard deciding what to experience. Arizona offers a lot more than the Grand Canyon, from Native American culture to red rock formations, from sports to spas and other ways to stay active, from fascinating metropolitan areas like Phoenix to stunning and lonely desert environments. For us, it is a perfect road trip destination.

Aranui Cruises - Our client since 2010

The Aranui 5 starts its journey of almost 800 miles in Tahiti. It sails to the most spectacular and remote islands in French Polynesia. The first stop on this 14 day voyage starts with the Tuamotu islands, then the cruise continues to the Marquesas islands. The Marquesas’ six inhabited islands are so remote that the Aranui 5 is their lifeline to the outside world, bringing supplies and picking up copra, dried coconut and noni fruit. The ship will make 14 stops, which gives the passengers plenty of time to explore. Little has changed in these untouched islands, which have few roads or cars. Visitors are very rare and very welcome.

The British Virgin Islands - Our client since 1992

The British Virgin Islands are a group of almost 60 islands and islets in the northern Caribbean Sea - far off the beaten tourist paths yet easily accessible from Germany within a day. The main islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda with their beautiful pristine landscape and pure white beaches surrounded by the turquoise sea offer relaxed holidays in individual tranquil atmosphere. "Nature's little secrets" are famous with water sports enthusiasts for being one of the best sailing waters in the world.

Guyana Tourism Authority - Client of our subsidiary fastforward-marketing since 2018

Guyana is located in the north of South America at the Atlantic coast. Its neighbours are Venezuela, Suriname and Brazil. Guyana fascinates its visitors with extraordinary experiences, no matter if they are in the huge tropical rainforest with a rich flaura and fauna, at Kaieteur Falls, one of the most gigantic waterfalls worldwide or in the historical quarters of the capital, Georgetown. Interesting fact: Most of the 750,000 inhabitants live in coastal regions and their settlements take up only 16 % of the country’s area. The other 84 % are pure nature!

Jamaica Tourist Board - Client of our subsidiary fastforward-marketing since 2003

From each morning’s glorious sunrise until the sea swallows the sun at night, Jamaica presents a magnificent palette of experiences, a kaleidoscope of colors and sounds that make our island the most precious jewel in the Caribbean. We are a land of unique culture, engaging activities, breathtaking landscapes, and a warm, welcoming people. The beat of reggae. The searing smell of jerk over the fire. The swizzle of rum in your glass. No place on earth provides the range of attractions and the cultural diversity that can be found here. No place on earth feels like it. No place on earth shines like it. Jamaica, the home of rhythm and sway.

Jersey - Our client since 2019

Jersey - an island shaped by the sea and with one of the most amazing tides in the world, which crashes onto the coast and brings life to the land. An island of small area but with great charisma. Here, dirt roads lead to magnificent vantage points from high cliffs, and the sea is nowhere more than ten minutes away. An island to discover and packed with activities to explore, to experience and to breathe a sigh of relief.

Michigan - Our client since 2013

The State of Michigan is also nicknamed ‘The Great Lakes State’. This is because it borders 4 out of 5 of the Great Lakes and offers a coastline of more than 3,200 miles, varying from steep cliffs to long and white sand beaches. This fact and the more than 11,000 other smaller lakes make Michigan a paradise for water sports enthusiasts and beach goers alike. Besides that it has so much more to offer. Outdoor buffs will enjoy hiking and camping in the vast forests with many hidden waterfalls and creeks while culture lovers can visit the cradle of motor industry and of the legendary Motown-sound in vibrant Detroit.

Nova Scotia - Our client since 2000

The Canadian province of Nova Scotia is situated in the very Eastern part of Canada and as a peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic ocean. It is the combination of land and sea that make New Scotland attractive to tourists. Among the attractions are historic forts, idyllic fishing villages and impressing open air museums, but most of all it is the diverse landscape that impresses visitors: jagged mountain ranges, untouched forests, numerous inland lakes and rivers and especially the jagged and rocky coast line of 7000 km with innumerable bays and cliffs, off shore islands and beautiful sandy beaches.
