The global leader in guided holidays and winner of the award for Best Tour Operator (International) at AFTA’S 2016 National Travel Industry Awards, Trafalgar, is delving deeper into Asia with the introduction of three new destinations; India, Sri Lanka and Laos. Travelling in groups of up to just 26 guests, each journey offers clients an in-depth and intimate exploration into this enigmatic part of the world where modern meets ancient. Trafalgar’s commitment to delivering the very best guided holidays is reflected in Feefo reviews which demonstrate an overall satisfaction rating of 97 per cent, allowing agents to sell Trafalgar with confidence and the endorsement of past guests.
Boasting nine new itineraries and three new destinations, Trafalgar’s Asia 2017 programme is its most comprehensive to date and features an expanded range of Mini Stays to provide agents with options to sell Asia’s most exciting urban centres to clients looking for an immersive city experience. Functioning as standalone four day mini breaks or the perfect add-on to a guided holiday, Trafalgar has introduced the new Bangkok Explorer which combines tuk tuks with Thai massages and reveals the secrets of Thai cooking, whilst the new Hong Kong and Macau Experience delves into these two former colonies through immersive sightseeing tours. Those looking to combine the buzz and bright lights of Tokyo with Japan’s serene Lake District region can find exactly that with the new Tokyo with Mt. Fuji mini stay.
Matthew Cameron Smith, Managing Director of Trafalgar Australia, commented “Australian travellers have always been drawn to Asia due to its proximity and exotic appeal and for 2017 Trafalgar has diversified its offering across the continent. With the addition of three new destinations, new itineraries and Mini Stays, Trafalgar has provided agents with all the tools needed to sell the full range of experiences on offer in Asia whether it be a journey into colourful India or urban escape to Hong Kong. Whatever experience clients are looking for they can be rest assured that Trafalgar is by their side, stripping away language barriers and taking care of every detail so guests can be immersed in the glories and splendour of Asia.”
