El Segundo, Calif. (PRWEB) October 26, 2010
Luxury tour operator Travcoa unveiled their new 2011 Europe brochure this week revealing a variety of off-the-beaten-path and luxury European tours extending across the continent from Ireland to Russia and Scandinavia to Sicily. The company expects Europe to once again be a top selling destination among its North American travelers in the coming year with strong demand for its small-group Escorted Journeys in the region.
The new 2011 brochure features nine luxury European tours, each with a maximum of 18 guests, including a 13-day Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro itinerary that includes three UNESCO World Heritage sites plus exploration into small, less visited villages and sites. Also featured are a 16-day journey into Albania, Macedonia and northern Greece; a 17-day adventure through Turkey and Armenia; 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. Details of all the 2011 luxury European tours can be found in the Escorted Journeys section of http://www.travcoa.com.
The company continues to offer their trademark Dine-Around option in 2011, 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. The company is now the only major US tour operator to offer this independent dining feature as a part of luxury European tours. The 2011 Travcoa catalog includes detailed dining recommendations for each journey provided by the respected monthly publication, Passport Newsletter.
A separate sampling of Travcoa’s new 2011 luxury European tours on an independent basis is also included in the new brochure. Titled Independent Journeys, these tours are pre-packaged and pre-priced packages using private cars and guides, all designed for couples, families or friends who prefer to travel privately. The 10 Independent Journey selections include explorations of Bulgaria, Poland and Corsica. These Independent Journeys can also be booked by travelers to complement an Escorted Journey.
Also newly-added for 2011 are four, small-ship expeditions offered in partnership with Travcoa’s sister-company, Zegrahm Expeditions. Journeys include explorations into remote areas of the Mediterranean and Black Sea aboard the 110-guest Clipper Odyssey along with suggested independent pre- or post-cruise Travcoa land arrangements. A dedicated section on small-ship cruising can be found at http://www.travcoa.com.
