Boutique hotel stay in China, epic wildlife encounters and Mekong river cruising all part of Kuoni’s latest touring collection

From spending a night in a boutique hotel overlooking the Great Wall of China to discovering local life on the Mekong Discovery river cruise in Vietnam. Kuoni’s latest Escorted Touring programme is now on sale for January 2020 to December 2021 departures.

With four brand new destinations; Turkey, Greece, Israel and Colombia, the newly revamped programme also features a number of new itineraries and experiences.

Colombia is featured under touring for the first time with 12-night Highlights of Colombia taking in the spectacular coffee region and Cartagena’s UNESCO-listed old town.

New for 2020 is the Madagascar Wildlife Tour, perfect for nature-lovers looking for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with an experiences such as visiting a secluded island to see endangered aye aye lemurs and watching the sun set at the Avenue of the Baobabs.

The South African Explorer tour has new experiences which include a visit to the White Elephant Safari Lodge and lunch with the resident elephant researcher. All East African tours now offer a four-night extension to Uganda to see gorillas in the wild and a visit to the local community.

In Europe, Kuoni has added a selection of new tours including Highlights of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast which takes in stylish Capri along a coastal drive and Highlights of Greece which is packed with foodie experiences from how honey is made to a cooking lesson in Athens.

Following on from Channel 5’s Cruising with Jane McDonald, Kuoni’s River Ganges and Mekong Discovery tours both offer an off-the-beaten track experience with more remote and authentic experiences to discover along the way.

Paul Ingram, Product & Category Manager said: “We’re really excited with the new 2020 range of tours and delighted to be offering our first Escorted Tours to Colombia, Israel, Greece and Turkey. We’ve also included lots of new experiences across the range, in response to positive customer feedback and the desire to experience a destination rather than just ticking off the sights.”

All tours are small group journeys with no more than 18 people, can be done as a private touring option and have guaranteed departures, no matter how early the booking has been made. Tour leaders are local and provide real insight into their culture and customs.
