Access Trips is announcing the launch of its new travel agent product line. To support its commitment to the travel agent community and the brand’s growth, the boutique tour company has appointed Teresa Costa as its director of travel agency sales and marketing. 

Through the travel agent product line, the culinary tour operator will offer a 10 percent travel agent commission on its new Peru Culinary Adventure, as well as its popular culinary tours to Vietnam, Thailand, Morocco, and Cuba.

Access Trips is distinguished in offering travel experiences with a heavy focus on local interaction. Curated itineraries feature such highlights as exploring Vietnam’s street food scene at night via vintage Vespa and experiencing a private pachamanca while learning to cook an Andean feast in an earth oven with villagers in Peru’s Sacred Valley.
