A SORRENTO couple are celebrating success at the State tourism awards in the second year of business.

Lisa and Chad D’Souza’s business Sightseeing Pass Australia was named a gold medallist in the specialised tourism service category at the 2017 WA Tourism Awards on November 11.

“This is our second year in business and second award, last year receiving silver for new tourism business,” Mrs D’Souza said.

“We want to ensure every traveller has a choice so we’ve created experiences under the food and wine, nature and beauty, coastal and aquatic, and urban culture pillars.

“Our mission when we launched in December 2015 was for Sightseeing Pass to make it easier for visitors to book tours and attractions in WA, inspire them to book some of the incredible experiences we have here, as well as support local tourism operators and the WA tourism industry.”

They run an e-commerce tourism website where people, particularly tourists from Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia can plan, organise and book tours, activities and attractions in WA.

Winners in 25 categories automatically become finalists in the 2017 Australian Tourism Awards, which will be held at Perth Stadium in February 2018.
