TORONTO — Goway is inviting clients to pack their bags for South America, Central America, Mexico, Antarctica and the Arctic with the launch of the new 2019 Central and South America Travel Planner – and inviting one lucky travel agent to pack his or her bags for the Galapagos Islands with a new trip giveaway.
The just released 2019 Central and South America Travel Planner is a comprehensive selling tool for South and Central America, and the Polar regions, says Goway.
The company adds that its proven travel module formula “lets holiday planners combine exciting city stopovers with South America’s big-name attractions and boutique travel ideas.” Itinerary choices range from three-star to five-star.
Celebrating the launch of the new 2019 brochure, Goway is also giving away a Galapagos four-day cruise to a one agent who books any product in the 2019 Central, South America and the Polar Region Travel Planner, between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018. Each booking equals one ballot to enter the draw.
New itinerary additions in the 2019 Central and South America Travel Planner include:
- The boutique and Goway designated ‘Stay of Distinction’, Illa Experience Hotel in Quito. “Illa isn’t just a place to stay, it’s a way to experience the richness of Quito’s culture,” says Goway. Illa Experience Hotel has 10 spacious rooms, including four suites and six deluxe rooms.
- The Wonders of the Galapagos: Small group touring in the famed islands and staying at the Magic Tented Camp in the middle of the Giant Tortoise Reserve. The Wonders of Peru, the same concept of budget group touring, has reduced pricing for 2019.
- Adding to Goway’s offerings of Long Stays in the South Pacific and Europe, the company has introduced sun and an escape from winter with a Mexico Long Stay, with everything from one-bedroom condos to four-bedroom villas in a gated community environment just a short drive from Mexico’s most famed surfing town and beach of Puerto Escondido.
- Goway says it’s offering a more in depth look at one of South America’s most well-known market towns with the Otavalo Ecuador’s Indigenous World extension, as well as the addition of the award winning Jungle lodge of Napo Wildlife Reserve Ecuador.
- Goway says it has one of the largest selections of cruises for the Galapagos Islands and is always on the lookout to develop new opportunities. This year the five-star Galapagos vessels M/C Endemic and M/Y Isabela have been added to the company’s ever-expanding fleet of ships.
- Peru is world-renowned for its culinary offerings and now Goway offers the opportunity to cook with an internationally trained Peruvian chef as clients prepare – and of course eat – local Peruvian dishes with the Urban Kitchen experience in Lima.
- The Skylodge is a unique form of accommodation in Peru’s Sacred Valley, with glass pods suspended from the walls of the Andes cliff face, offering a quiet and unique (to say the least) stay in the heart of what was the Inca Empire. “If heights at night are not your thing, then consider a lunch in the glass pod before moving onto more ‘grounded’ accommodation choices,” says Goway.
- A new train option to and from Machu Picchu, the 360 Machu Picchu Train, allows clients to explore the Andean landscape like never before with wider and taller panoramic windows and an observation outdoor carriage including a bar.
- As the Inca Trail becomes ever busier, a new trek is gaining popularity, says Goway: “The Rainbow Mountain Trek is a fantastic and less travelled trek than the Inca Trail and is not restricted due to limited availability.”
- In the heart of South America is a vast area similar to that of the Okavango Delta in Botswana: the Pantanal. A new lodge for Goway is the Pantanal Araras Lodge. “Delve into the incredible Brazilian wetlands to search for the jaguar on this exciting eco tour. Staying at Araras Eco Lodge, you’ll head out on excursions into the Pantanal to see the diverse wildlife that call the floodplains home. You’ll also head on a full-day adventure up the Cuiaba River to spot jaguars in the midst of the hunt.”
- New and improved Antarctica itineraries including the Ross Sea journey from Ushuaia to New Zealand, Arctic itineraries from the Spitsbergen Explorer, North West Passage to the North Pole.
- Goway says its Holidays of a Lifetime have undergone some streamlining. The popular Cradle of the Incas tour covers the highlights of Peru for US$3,999. The 9-day Samba, Tango and Waterfalls tour starting at $5,999 offers the best experiences in Brazil and Argentina. And the two trips can be combined to create the 17-day Signature South America program, allowing travellers to experience all three of these countries in style, from $9,899.
- Popular compact destinations for clients short on time include Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica. Exploring nature’s wilder side, Goway says it continues to see steady demand for Antarctica, Argentina, Easter Island and Chile.
“In short, Goway is the one stop shop for all things South & Central America and the Polar regions, from budget to luxury, including small ship and traditional cruises, pre and post cruise options, small group travel, group & incentive travels, adventure travel, honeymoons, luxurious experiences, and more,” says the company.
