As luxury travelers seek personal fulfillment and transformative moments, Luxury Gold is meeting the demand with personalized and experiential, designed journeys. The tour operator released its new 2019 Worldwide Collection, featuring five new luxury guided journeys, bespoke independent holidays, and Chairman’s Collection.

New itineraries making their debut next year include: "Ultimate Ireland, Castles & Kingdoms" in Britain and Ireland, "Remarkable Russia," "New England’s Magnificent Autumn," and "America’s Captivating Pacific Northwest." They all offer a selection of exclusive VIP experiences, luxury hotels and dining, such as dining at Michelin-starred L'Ecrivain restaurant in Dublin and a private, after-hours visit to the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.

Curated by The Travel Corporation’s Chairman Stanley Tollman, the Chairman’s Collection includes exclusive experiences to meet legendary locals such as Princess Anita von Hohenberg at her Austrian castle, or make music in Nashville with Grammy Award-winning musician Charlie McCoy. On select Chairman’s Collection departures of Castle & Kingdoms, guests meet the Duchess of Northumberland at her home, Alnwick Castle, and take a private tour of her beautifully restored gardens.

On Bespoke Journeys, travelers can create their own tailor-made independent itineraries in Greece, Ireland, Scotland and Africa. Jon Grutzner, President of Luxury Gold, told TMR, "Clients have traveled previously on mass market trips, and are ready to try a more luxurious, tailored style of journey. They may only have a couple weeks of vacation a year and they want to do it right, so they are increasingly choosing the luxury bespoke option." 

Additional trip enhancements are also being rolled out in 2019, such as Your Way, which allows guests to customize their journeys with a choice of included experiences; and on days with relaxed starts, guests can enjoy breakfast in their room at no extra charge.

With all the details, the tour operator's 2019 Worldwide Collection magazine is launching more than two months earlier than previous years.

“This shareable content is a great selling tool for our amazing travel advisors, and offers an opportunity for them to refine their knowledge of our exceptional experiences,” said Ulla Hefel Böhler, global CEO of Luxury Gold.
