Here today, Guam tomorrow
While Tamuning-based Pacific Island Holidays ramps up its safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as it brings tourists back to Guam, the company will also offer its same dependable services as a tour operator.
“Visitors can go city sightseeing, river cruising, kayaking, paddle boarding, and shopping. They can go to the restaurants and shows they want,” says PIH’s Lester Sison. “It will be a slow pace going back to normal, but we will make sure that our customers are safe.
Several of Guam’s intriguing attractions are stops on a sightseeing tour of Hagatña. Visitors can see the Statue of Liberty replica in Paseo Park; the Basilica of Our Lady Mary (the first Catholic church in Guam); and the mysterious Latte Stone Park, lined with towering stone pillars dating back to A.D. 500. The Plaza de España, home to Apugan Fort, is a scenic spot with incredible views of Tumon Bay. The tour covering the main attractions is about 2.5 hours.
Visitors can also board two-seater kayaks, drift along the Talofofo River, and spot large catfish and crabs along the way. After an invigorating river adventure, kayakers can enjoy a barbecue lunch and take a walk through the ancient ruins of the Chamorro Village. The kayak tour is offered through PIH’s sister company, Turtle Tours.
Sison says the government plans to reopen tourism at the end of July. To learn more, email Pacific Island Holidays’ Yasuhide Torigoe or go to pihguam.net.
