Report on Tourist office
This report is written to recommend some local activities that might be interesting and good fun for foreign tourists in our area. I would like to propose two different kinds of activity. The first suggestion is for those who enjoy physical exercise while the second one is more cultural.
1. Cycling: There are a number of pretty cycle routes around the town and the countryside. Bicycles can be rented in the town centre and the tourist office could give the visitor a map in English so they can plan the length or level of difficulty of their route.
2. Culture; A fascinating experience for history lovers would be a guided walking tour in English around Smalltown’s splendid cathedral, spectacular medieval castle and the local history museum. This visit usually lasts about three hours, so it could be done in a morning.
Personally I would definitely recommend both of these options as I am sure tourists would have a good time getting to know our town while doing exercise and could combine these activities with a visit to some of our excellent local pubs and restaurants!
I only included 2 different points and used quite formal language. I spent about 10 minutes on my plan and then just expanded each point to write my report.
My report is based on a real town, but with an invented name. It’s easier to find a plan if you think of real places and activities.
Have a look at the typical expressions highlighted in black.
