The “Wine, Water and Wonders” tour is aimed at increasing interest and awareness of Upstate New York to international tour operators, and involves tourism agencies from the Finger Lakes, Rochester, Corning and the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corp.
The program is in its second year and offers a thematic trip for foreign travelers on their way from New York City to Niagara Falls.
“We’re linking activities and trying to extend the stay of the international visitor,” Percy said.
The grant money will be used to market the tour in the United Kingdom and Germany, Percy said.
