Destination specialist Eclipse Travel partnered with PROMPERU, the Peruvian tourism board, and the brand new luxurious hotel, explora Valle Sagrado, for an intimate evening event on Wednesday 5 October at the Imperial Hotel in Paddington.
Celebrating the exceptional Peru itineraries Eclipse Travel offers, the evening commenced with a short presentation by PROMPERU, followed by a special session with a representative from explora Valle Sagrado. Throughout the evening, travel agents were treated to the classic Peruvian cocktail Pisco Sour and an array of delicious canapés.
The evening continued with an overview from Eclipse Travel’s Stephen Lanfranco on Eclipse Travel’s product offering and an introduction to their team of experts including Directors Matt McMillan and Tim Farquhar. Guests also had the opportunity to win an 11-day famil to Peru, a luxurious 4-night stay for two in explora Valle Sagrado, a $500 Eclipse Travel voucher, and a deluxe PROMPERU giftbag with a bottle of Pisco from lucky prize draws.
The big winner of the night was Aaron Eilers from Cruise Express, who will join eight other travel agents from Australia and New Zealand for an 11-day famil trip to Peru from 31 October to 10 November 2016. Highlights of the famil will include Lima, Arequipa, the Colca Canyon, Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu as well as two nights accommodation at the new explora property.
Directors Matt McMillan and Tim Farquhar said the event was a great success. “We are very excited to showcase Peru as a rising destination with PROMPERU and explora Valle Sagrado, and it is a wonderful opportunity for our fellow travel agents to learn about our unique itineraries and brand values.”
