Tour Operator's New Europe Catalogue Goes Off the Beaten Path

Luxury tour operator Travcoa unveiled their 2011 Europe brochure this week revealing a variety of off-the-beaten-path explorations into Western, Central and Eastern Europe.
The new 2011 catalog features nine escorted journeys for 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.
The company continues to offer their trademark Dine-Around option in 2011, which lets guests 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 U.S. tour operator to offer this independent dining feature, especially popular with travelers on European journeys. The 2011 catalog includes detailed dining recommendations for each journey provided by Passport Newsletter.
A separate sampling of Travcoa’s 2011 European Independent Journeys, pre-packaged and pre-priced itineraries that are designed for couples, families or friends who prefer to travel privately, have been included into the new brochure. The 10 Independent Journey selections include explorations of Bulgaria, Poland and Corsica, and 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 land arrangements.
