Unique Travel Opportunities
Recently in an interview, Brett Tollman discussed the diverse and high quality travel services offered by The Travel Corporation. For instance, the Corporation uses smaller coaches for guided tours through cities, giving the traveler a more intimate experience by traveling with a smaller group with Brendan. With a smaller group, they are able to do and see more. It has also revamped the dining experience on some tours by breaking up into small groups and enjoying different restaurants, as offered by Insight Vacations with its signature “Dine Around” program. Trafalgar offers very unique experiences (Be My Guest) where one gets to learn about a working lemon farm in Sorrento, and then have a meal cooked for the group by the owners of the estate, or learn about a wine chateau in France.
