The program offers guests numerous value-added inclusions including daily breakfast, an average of up to half of the evening meals, VIP access and front-of-of the line access at major sites, free WiFi on their luxury air-conditioned motor coaches and free airport transfers on the start and end of most holidays.

“If you’ve already travelled to a destination, but want to get to a place that’s a little harder to reach, our Hidden Journeys guided holidays are what you’re looking for,” says Theresa Szejwallo, Managing Director of Trafalgar. “Clients travelling on a Hidden Journey’s trip will still enjoy Trafalgar’s Insider Experiences, an expert Travel Director and hand-picked 4 or 5-star accommodations, all in groups of no more than 26.”

New in 2016 are five guided vacations to USA, Canada, Costa Rica and Myanmar.
