Chapel HIll, NC (PRWEB) May 02, 2014
Kalos Golf, a specialty tour operator that organizes and conducts luxury golf cruises, has announced its second Golf Around the World Tour, scheduled for October 2015. Combining visits to prestigious golf courses and sightseeing tours in Fiji, Sydney, Bali, Thailand, Dubai, Mauritius, South Africa and Spain, it represents an exceptional and unmatched way to golf and tour on five continents in one itinerary.
The Kalos Golf Around the World Tour follows in the tradition Kalos Golf has established with its acclaimed tours of Europe, the British Isles, Southeast Asia and New Zealand, offering all-inclusive personalized service on board a privately chartered luxury vessel: a custom-outfitted Boeing 757 that can seat 78 guests. Accommodations at all stops are arranged at magnificent hotels and resorts that rank among the world’s finest. Travelers enjoy the convenience of arriving at each new destination with all details arranged in advance, with every need covered and no worries about handling golf bags or luggage. The tour’s dedicated on-board team of professionals includes a tour director, golf director, physician and private chef, as well as expert local guides at each destination.
The Kalos Golf Around the World Tour brings passengers to an illustrious lineup of the region's top golf courses. The itinerary includes top renowned courses such as Valderrama, Fancourt and New South Wales, along with a prime selection of the world’s best-kept secrets in phenomenal golfing experiences. Such a diverse range of different course styles – links, ocean, jungle, mountain, desert – has seldom been available within a single travel experience.
Beyond world-class golf, the tour also features expertly guided tours and countless opportunities for cultural engagement. The many highlights include exploring ancient temples in Bali, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Sydney Opera House, elephant trekking and a Thai cooking class in Chiang Mai, discovering Dubai by helicopter and then dining like royalty under the desert stars, a visit to a private game reserve in South Africa, and soaking up the Mediterranean atmosphere of southern Spain.
Kalos Golf is operating a relatively similar tour in October 2014. When the first Kalos Golf Around the World Tour was announced in 2013, demand proved to be much higher than the company expected. “We had been researching the best way to develop and operate an itinerary of this scope for a few years and knew from guest surveys that we had a good deal of interest in a golf around the world journey," said Jim Lamont, president of Kalos Golf. “But, we were floored at how quickly we booked it and filled up a waiting list, so we’re pleased to offer a second Golf Around the World Tour for 2015. The different cultures we explore, the scenic countrysides we visit, and the impeccable golf courses we play make this a remarkable opportunity.”
