Travcoa, a branch of TUI Travel PLC, and one of the few agencies offering exclusively luxury travel packages, has recently unveiled its 2011 Europe catalog, that will take customers to less customary destinations through Western, Central and Eastern Europe.
The brochure features a number of escorted journeys for small groups. Guests will visit destinations such as Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Northern Greece, Turkey and Armenia, with visits at UNESCO World Heritage sites and exploration into small, less-visited villages and sites. The jounrneys are organized as guided tours, with a duration between 12 and 17 days, depending on the destination and route (usually a route includes three countries). Some of the highlights of the catalog are a 12-day exploration into less-traveled Italy and a 15-day Lapland Reindeer Safari operating in March, 2012 with an overnight at the famous Ice Hotel in Sweden.
“Even in classic destinations such as Sicily, our small group operates very flexibly to take advantage of those serendipitous opportunities that arise on every journey.” said Richard Genovese, Travcoa’s vice president of marketing in a statement. “It’s not unusual for a Travcoa travel director to buy last-minute tickets for the group to an evening performance at one of the ancient Roman theaters or to organize impromptu events and parties that would be impossible with larger groups. Those are the things that guests often remember most fondly.”
Travcoa’s flagship special offer, the Dine-Around, whereby guests may dine out at any restaurant they wish and be fully reimbursed by Travcoa for the total cost of the meal, excepting alcohol and caviar, will continue during 2011.
