1. Hidden gems of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan

Looking for something to shake you out of your everyday? Head for the Caucasus region, at the crossroads of Europe and Asia.

Here, you can choose your own adventure. You’ll find everything from ancient castles to cosmopolitan cities in Azerbaijan, canyon views to craft workshops in Armenia – not to mention Georgia’s intriguing cave monasteries and fabulous cuisine. It’s perfect for curious travellers looking for intrigue (or indecisive travellers who want the best of all worlds!). 

This region isn’t a tourist hotspot yet, so you need to know where to look. Team up with a Bunnik tour that will bring you into the fold for local traditions, from tea-cream parties to home-style feasts. 

 

2. Sip wine by the seaside in northern Italy & Sardinia

OK, so Italy is no secret on the tourist circuit. But most travellers flock to very specific destinations… and why spend your days crammed like sardines into a tourist town, when you could be exploring Sardinia’s spectacular beaches instead? 

Head for some lesser-known towns to see Italy really sparkle. You’ll have long days of Italian island life, roaming under the Tuscan sun, stunning hikes along cliffside vineyards… and if you know the right places, whole stretches of this stunning country to yourself. Join this small-group trip to make Italy everything your mind, body, spirit – and stomach – is dreaming of.

 

3. Soak in the Adriatic, and fall asleep to the sound of waterfalls

If coastal villages, cobblestone lanes and lush natural landscapes are your thing — look no further than the jewels of Dalmatia. 

This is the ultimate destination for those looking to unwind. Spend your days sampling a degustation of Bosnian cheeses and smoked meats, then soak in the azure waters of the Adriatic.

And how about falling asleep to the sound of Plitvice’s lush waterfalls, falling lightly on rainforest? Here’s the intimate tour where you’ll find it. You’ll be so relaxed you might just forget to come home.

 

4. Bask in the sparkling colours of Morocco, Spain and Portugal

It’s hard not to fall in love with a place that always feels a little bit like summer, and that’s what Spain, Portugal and Morocco have in spades. 

Here, the big cities are a drawcard, but the smaller cities are the hidden gem. Don’t miss the chance to see the colourful streets of Seville, the hustle of Morocco’s medinas, and meet the spirited people of small-town Portugal. Here’s the ticket to all of that, plus a spin around the Douro Valley river, tasting world-class wine on the side.

Exploring the unique finds that Europe has to offer isn’t the only thing your clients will be thanking you for! Bunnik caps their tours at 20 people per trip, meaning fewer queues, more window seat views and more time to get lost in rich cultures. BUT the best part is, right now, these 2020 tours have an early bird saving of $500!
