APT Launches Dedicated USA Brochure

September 27, 2013 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

APT is launching a 28-page stand alone USA brochure showcasing its luxury land tours, Mississippi River Cruising and West Coast Air Cruising.

Comprising five itineraries ranging from nine to 25 days in length and available from 27 September, the new brochure is designed to make it easier for agents to differentiate the program from APT’s other North American, Canada & Alaska product.

Says Debra Fox, APT’s General Manager Marketing, “The USA is enjoying a revival amongst Australian travellers who love the contrasts between its energetic cities, iconic attractions and stunning national parks. With a rapidly expanding portfolio and an exciting range of travel styles in this destination,download (2) we felt it was time for the USA to stand proud with a brochure all of its own. The itineraries are spectacular and, in our opinion, well worthy of their own shelf space.”

Featured itineraries include:

–          19-day The Big Easy to the Big Apple. Priced from $12,195, per person, twin share, the trip comprises an 11-night land journey, starting with two nights in New Orleans, prior to a seven night river cruise from New Orleans to Memphis on board the newest and finest ship on the Mississippi – the boutique-sized Queen of the Mississippi paddlewheeler, of which APT has exclusivity. The land journey continues, post-cruise, with a night each in Memphis and Nashville, three nights in Washington D.C., a night in Philadelphia and three nights in New York City.

–          13-day New Orleans to Nashville (and in reverse). Starting from $8,495, per person, twin share, this trip comprises a seven night river cruise from New Orleans to Memphis on board the Queen of the Mississippi. Also included is a five night luxury land journey with two nights, pre-cruise, spent in New Orleans followed by a night in Memphis post-cruise and then two nights in Nashville.

–          West Coast US Air Cruising. This nine-day itinerary covers the West Coast US states of California, Arizona and Nevada with a VIP private plane experience flying guests between private airports. The trip takes in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Grand Canyon and Las Vegas and is priced from just $3,495 per person, twin share, including eight nights accommodation
