Niagara Falls, NY - Niagara Tourism & Convention Corporation (NTCC) this week is hosting the "So You Think You Know Niagara” FAM (familiarization) tour for tour operators from across the country including California, Florida, New Jersey and Kentucky. FAM tours provide an opportunity for operators to personally experience a product in order to more adequately sell it to their customers.

In addition, the operators will be introduced to new group experiences such as a Lantern Tour at Old Fort Niagara, and a Paint and Pinot Party at A Gust of Sun Winery and will dine at some of our destination’s top-notch restaurants including Savor at the Niagara Falls Culinary Instituteand a ride on the Niagara Belle Sunset Dinner Cruise.
"The objective of this FAM is to provide tour operators with first-hand experience of the many Niagara USA sights and attractions that would be of interest to their customers," said John Percy, President & CEO of the Niagara Tourism & Convention Corporation.
