Which country won the Best Overseas Destination title?10th July 2018
Last night, we were lucky enough to attend the Silver Travel Awards in London at the National Portrait Gallery. Thanks to you, our fantastic guests, we were shortlisted for the Best Cultural Tour Operator prize and getting to celebrate this honour in the company of Classic FM'S John Suchet and other industry professionals was a delight.
One of the award categories was Best Overseas Destination and we were particularly excited when Italy was crowned the winner, because we offer a wealth of experiences in this beautiful country.

Whether it's the heady Rossini Anniversary Opera Festival in Pesaro, the opportunity to explore Tuscany and indulge at a local wine-tasting at a leisurely pace, or the gastronomic treats of Sicily, we have a tour for you.
Interestingly, the USA was the runner-up in this category, making it the second popular Best Overseas Destination. We offer two incredibly different tours to North America; the first being a cultural exploration of Manhattan in December, taking in live performances at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center, privately meeting with dancers from the New York City Ballet, and touring the Metropolitan Opera House. Our other tour is brand new for 2019: Native American Pueblos. Spend an evening listening to a Navajo storyteller, travel along the San Juan river by boat and visit the incredible Monument Valley.
While we didn't bring home a prize at the Silver Travel Awards, we have been nominated in three categories at this year's British Travel Awards, of which we are previous winners.
