Tourism entrepreneur predicts the impending year to be strong

Published on : Wednesday, December 27, 2017

globeEven though few downtown business owners stated that last summer disorder and violence had harmed the bottom lines of the sector, one local entrepreneur believes that the tourism industry is quite strong.

Andre Xavier is the owner of several travel-related businesses comprising Hop on Tours, which provides tour to people to the areas like breweries, wineries, distilleries and cideries.


This year, Xavier explains that his business doubled and he doesn’t hear visitors expressing concerns about safety in Charlottesville.

“They’re actually feeling sympathetic toward Charlottesville, and they want to come and support local tourism,” he said.

Xavier mentioned that he believes 2017’s record grape harvest at various local wineries along with the wildfires that have impacted Napa Valley will assist in bringing even more visitors to the Charlottesville area in 2018.
