Euro-a-go-go: Collette debuts new 2024 Europe & adds Japan tours as popularity peaks

Collette has added new Europe tours and departures for 2024 amid soaring demand for its Continental itineraries. Meanwhile, Japan continues its momentum into 2024 as a top seller for the global tour operator.

Available in time for the Northern Hemisphere summer season, the Europe 2024 trips include a 15-day Flavours of Portugal & Spain Explorations tour and new Spotlight tours in Northern Italy and London.

Collette Managing Director Australia Karen Deveson said the company’s Spotlight city stays and guided tours offer a more immersive destination experience.

“Spotlight tours are perfect for getting to know a destination in-depth as travellers stay in one hotel for the duration of their stay,” she said.

“Our brand-new Spotlight on Northern Italy tour is a fantastic way to explore some of Italy’s most interesting regions.

“We’re also seeing an increase in interest in our Spotlight tour of London and our Greece Island Hopper tour, which features Mykonos, Santorini and Athens.”

The eight-day itinerary features Venice, Verona and the Dolomites, including a winery tour in the Prosecco region and a seven-night stay in Treviso, the birthplace of tiramisu.

The six-day Spotlight on London guided tour also has seats available from 7 June 2024 priced from $3,399 per person twin-share or $4,249 for solo travellers.

Collette’s 10-day Greek Island Hopper tour is in high demand with savings of up to $500 for select 2024 departures.

Collette Product Designer Roger Clulow said each itinerary features highly trained tour guides to interpret and ensure language is no barrier.

 “This makes delving into the nation’s history and interacting with local experts much easier. It’s this focus that is making our tours so popular,” he said.\
