New itineraries for 2017 include: the 19-day ‘Inspiring Indochina’, which links three of Luxury Gold’s new itineraries to create the ultimate combination of Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos; the 15-day ‘Inspiring Australia’, which journeys through Queensland, the Northern Territory and New South Wales; the 13-day ‘The French Connection’, connecting England, Guernsey, Jersey and France; the 24-day ‘The Long White Cloud’, which combines the new ‘Southern Drift’ and ‘Endless Shores’ journeys to span the whole of New Zealand; and the seven-day ‘Quito and the Galapagos Islands’, which includes five days cruising to the Galapagos Islands.
In response to demand, a number of mini-trips that featured in the 2016 program have been expanded for 2017 to create dedicated and more in-depth tours such as the new ‘Classical Sri Lanka’ and ‘Nepal & Bhutan – Mountain Kingdoms.’
Luxury Gold is also launching a new Immersive Volunteer Trip extension in India through partnership with ME to WE, allowing guests the opportunity to spend time in a community in rural Rajasthan. Here they will work on building projects and learn about sustainable agriculture practices, traditional crafts and daily life in the hills and farmland of India through the personal stories of the men and women living there.
