New escorted tours are being introduced for 2018 by Cox & Kings to Latin America as well as increasing family holiday and private tour options.
The expansion follows a 30% rise in bookings in the past three months on the back of new British Airways flights to Peru, Chile and Costa Rica, along with the continent’s first luxury Belmond Andean Explorer overnight train.
The train to Machu Picchu trip is the operator’s best-selling escorted tour to South America with bookings up 40% over last year.
Cox & Kings’ Latin America product manager Vessela Baleva said: “Latin America has long been a favourite destination for Cox & Kings clients, and I’m delighted that the new flights have helped to encourage even more people to visit.
“For 2018 we are introducing new escorted tours that combine countries, allowing people to see as much as possible in one trip.
“Improvements in domestic flight connections have meant that it’s easier to create multi-country itineraries. Our team of experts in the UK travel regularly to the region and there’s very little that they can’t recommend or arrange.”
A new group tour starting in Peru’s Sacred Valley visits Machu Picchu and then Lima, avoiding an extra domestic flight. The second half of the tour covers Ecuador, staying in Quito for two nights and then a four-night cruise around the Galapagos islands. The 16-day escorted tour leads in at £4,795 per person.
Increased suggestions for exploring Latin America as a family have been included for 2018 as the operator marks its 260th anniversary. Three new itineraries to Peru, Mexico and Ecuador have been created.
