Luxury Gold Introduces Nine New Itineraries and Curated VIP Tours

by Richard D'Ambrosio

The Travel Corporation's (TTC) Luxury Gold division announced nine new itineraries (including independent trips for the first time ever) and a Chairman's Collection of exclusive travel experiences.

The nine new itineraries are to Great Britain, Croatia and Montenegro, Scandinavia, France, Japan, South Africa, New Zealand and India, offering what Luxury Gold calls "VIP experiences."

For example, in Lima, Peru guests have the chance to visit the studio of world-famous artist Vi­ctor Delfi­n and chat with him about his life and work, and in India they'll stay at the five-star Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur.

The new exclusive Chairman's Collection is curated by Stanley Tollman. It includes experiences like lunch with an Italian count at his grand Tuscan villa; a visit to the gardens of Alnwick Castle with the Duchess of Northumberland; dining with a French noble at Paris's oldest cafe; and a cocktail reception with Princess Anita von Hohenberg at Artstetten Castle.

Currently, travelers can save 10 percent on Luxury Gold trips with an early payment discount, and $800 per couple on business class airfare.
