Riviera Travel has introduced two new programmes for 2021 focused on small groups and private tours, with an agent incentive launched in celebration.
The operator said the new programmes would run in addition to its “classic group tours” but were designed for those preferring to travel in smaller groups.
The Small Group options are available across Riviera’s European tours, as well as ‘Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains’ and ‘The Silk Road’ tour through Uzbekistan and will contain no more than 25 people. Riviera said it would mean its coaches would be no more than half full.
Meanwhile its new Private Tours will see guests given a private car with a personal guide, offering travellers flexibility “to move at their own pace”.
Ten tours are available as private tours in 2021: India & Shimla; Rajasthan; Sri Lanka; Vietnam & Cambodia; Malaysia & Borneo; Costa Rica; Ecuador & Galapagos; Georgia; Imperial Cities of Morocco; and, Jordan.
Prices start from £389 per person for a 4-day Bruges & Paris Small Group tour (£40 more than the standard tour). Private Tours start from £1,529 per person for the 8-day Imperial Cities of Morocco tour (£460 more than the standard tour).
In celebration of the new programme, Riviera has launched an incentive for trade partners, with all agents who make a new booking on a Small Group Tour or Private Tour before the end of October, entered into a draw to win a place for themselves and a plus one on a small group tour in 2021.
To enter, agents should send the booking reference to email@example.com.
