LONDON, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyages Jules Verne, the specialist tour operator, has launched the latest edition of its popular Classic Resorts & Weekends brochure.
The brochure features a choice of 32 itineraries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, and clients can choose from classic city breaks and cultural forays or simply book a relaxing resort stay with the option to add on some sightseeing trips once they get there.
The new brochure, which covers departures from April 2011 to April 2012, encompasses perennial Voyages Jules Verne favourites - such as Venice from the Water, Bargain in Marrakech and A Taste of South Africa, as well as more recent additions that include Tallinn Tales, and Arts & Delights in Vienna.
There are four new holidays which have been added to the Classic Resorts & Weekend brochure for 2011, including Bombay Mix, a five-night trip to India which features a full-day sightseeing tour of the city as well as time for independent exploration. Going Going Tirol allows clients to stay in the Tirolean village of Going for seven nights including a journey on Europe's oldest steam-driven railway the Achenseebahn and a cruise on Lake Achensee.
The new additions also include An Icelandic Summer, where clients are based in Reykjavik and Heritage of Malta, which has a four night stay in one of Malta's historic hotels.
Also new to the Classic Resorts & Weekends brochure this year are details about the walking content of itineraries. Shown alongside other useful tour information in the 'Key VJV Features' section on each page, each tour is graded from 1 (relaxed walking) to 4 (strenuous - for seasoned walkers), based on an overall assessment of the terrain and activities covered.
Solo travellers selecting their next trip from the new Classic Resorts & Weekends brochure need not fear financial penalty, with more than half of the itineraries available with no single supplement. Options range from Cyprus - The Southern Tour, A Slice of Madeira, Grand Hotels on Lake Como and an Italian itinerary that includes a journey on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, as well as the brand-new Heritage of Malta and Going Going Tirol tours. No Single Traveller ( http://www.vjv.com/themes/theme.html?dsid=29) supplement places apply on certain departure dates only and are subject to availability.
