Tasmania – The Grand Circuit (Tour Confirmed)
Oct 16 – Oct 30, 2022
We will be making a circuit of the island of Tasmania, taking in a long list of its beautiful scenic routes and locations and its historic highlights …this really is the very best of Tasmania. We’ll have time in Hobart (timed to coincide with the famous Salamanca markets), will cruise Peppermint Bay, taste gourmet food on a wilderness cruise to Bruny Island and board the West Coast Wilderness Railway.
There’s an overnight stay in the famous Cradle Mountain Lodge and a cruise through the Gordon River Wilderness Area and we will see Tasmanian devils and echidna in a special sanctuary, taste local wines, encounter local artists and craftspeople, enjoy lunch on a Wineglass Bay cruise, visit historic farm estates and, of course, explore the notorious Port Arthur convict settlement. There are plenty more highlights too – they are all outlined in the full itinerary, so do contact me or Moray at firstname.lastname@example.org so you can read more!
Oman and UAE
Nov 20 – Dec 5, 2022
This holiday will begin in Dubai with a special tour focusing on Dubai’s spectacular architecture and will include an elevator ride up the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
We’ll then travel to Sharjah and stroll through its souks (markets) and world class museums. Sharjah is a Unesco Cultural Capital of Arabian Culture. In Abu Dhabi we will visit the Louvre Abu Dhabi and a falcon hospital among other attractions.
We then move to Oman, an Arabian country that treasures its traditions and which I have travelled to in person before. There are no modern skyscrapers here but authentic Arabian experiences. We have a week to travel around the country visiting everything from builders of traditional Arabian dhows (small ships), oasis, date plantations and livestock markets, palaces and forts. We’ll also spend a night in comfort in a desert camp and meet the Bedouin people.
What I’m especially pleased about with this itinerary is that there are a number of meals with local families included, giving us a chance to meet people properly and understand a little more about their lives.
The Gulf States and Oman are an ideal way to get back into international travel after all the stresses and worries of the past two years as they have an excellent infrastructure for travellers, world class health care, hotel and food standards.
