WorldTowning Voyages has created six new tours for 2022 during the pause in travel brought on by Covid.
The operator only offers trips in destinations where they have spent a minimum of three months living among the locals, and it pays agents 10% commission for bookings.
Its new tours are to Morocco, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, France and India. Only Morocco is scheduled to depart in 2021, with the others following next year.
Founders Jessica and Will Sueiro will lead the operator’s first trip back in October, to Morocco, with their two teenage children. Highlights include Médina tours, mountain walks, cooking classes and a camel trek in the Sahara.
“People are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel, and they are ready to be more intentional about their life and travel,” said Jessica Suerio.
“They are realising they don’t want to wait until it is too late. Covid, in all its nastiness, has taught people that life is fragile, and now is the time to go after those big dreams.”
The new tours will focus on ‘deeper intentions, connections, and even more local experiences’.
“Having spent a considerable amount of time in Morocco, we know how transformative time in this country can be,” said Will Sueiro. “The people, the sights, the sounds and the fragrances are something most people have never experienced before. Watching our guests cautiously tip toe out of their comfort zones and allow themselves to experience something new is magical.”
WorldTowning Voyages will require guests to follow the local Covid-19 regulations, including providing a negative Covid test prior to arrival and wearing a face mask. Travelers will also be required to carry valid travel insurance.
