Continuing to expand upon its long haul programme, Newmarket Holidays has added eight new escorted tours, including departures to India and Africa, to its Worldwide Collection for 2018/19.

David Sharman, the operator’s commercial director, said: “Long haul sales through our agency partners continue to increase year on year, with a real interest in escorted tours. Travellers want to experience the ‘must see’ sights in the company of a knowledgeable guide, with a balance of rest and relaxation in good quality hotels. Feedback from customers on the programme continues to be very positive, and there’s every reason to believe that the new tours will build on that success”.

The new tours include ‘Japan – Land of the Rising Sun’, which offers a 13-day introduction to the country from £3,199 per person; ‘A Journey through India – Grand Palaces & Historic Forts’, a 16-day tour of Rajasthan featuring accommodation in some top-rated heritage hotels; and a 13-day ‘Darjeeling & Bhutan – The Last Himalyan Kingdom’ holiday that also features an introduction to former Raj-era capital Kolkata.

Following recent successes, two more tours are offered in Africa; a ‘Kenya Grand Safari’ which includes a stay in famous the Treetops hotel and an 11-day ‘Cape Town, the Garden Route & Big Five Safaris’ tour in South Africa. Other additions include ‘Glorious Eastern Canada – from Nova Scotia to Niagara’, a ‘Cairo, Luxor & Nile Cruise’, a small-ship island hopping experience in the Seychelles, and the chance to see Borneo’s orangutans on a tour that also includes stays in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Penang.
