"The International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT is most pleased to endorse and recommend Mr. Burkhard Herbote as a consultant and inter-cultural advisor. I have known Burkhard since the late 1990's. He is always ready to assist in any way possible and has been a valuable asset and resource to IIPT in our mission of promoting "peace through tourism". His knowledge of the industry as well as geo-political conditions throughout the world is without equal. His World Tourism Directory is the established 'gold standard' for contacts and information related to all sectors of the industry throughout the world. Burkhard also serves as an important member of the IIPT International Advisory Board."
