Central Holidays Develops Progressive Small Group Escorted Tours Featuring Exclusive Experiential Activities


Moonachie, NJ – (March 26, 2019) – Central Holidays is unveiling an innovative concept in touring – small group escorted tours that feature exclusive activities and excursions for the most immersive of destination experiences. These superb programs deliver all of the benefits offered in Central Holidays’ renowned signature Premier Escorted Motorcoach Tours, plus exclusive inclusions and an intimate group size of a maximum of 16 travelers for even more personalized and in-depth experiences. 

“In response to requests from repeat guests, Central Holidays has developed this exciting new concept in escorted touring where travelers can enjoy all of the worry-free advantages of the company’s signature escorted programs, with the addition of activities and excursions ideally suited for smaller groups such as unique culinary experiences – from the opportunity to savor famed Neapolitan pastries and limoncello in Sorrento, to a traditional cappuccino break in Rome, or the chance to taste delicious gelato at one of the city’s first gelaterias in Florence,” said Tewfik Ghattas, SGI Board Member.  “On these new small group tours, it’s all about experiences that truly take you to live the magic of Italy like a local with the added perk of sharing these moments of a lifetime in the intimacy of a small group.”

Central Holidays’ signature escorted travel programs in Italy feature: complimentary wine, mineral water and coffee or cappuccino with lunches and dinners in specially selected restaurants. As well, all Central Holidays Escorted Tours in Italy feature the "Hear Clear" personal audio system, allowing you to hear all the details about the places you visit, even when standing 60 feet away from you guide. Add to that bonus sightseeing, centrally located hotels, and the most time at leisure to delve into a city, town or village on your own, and you see just how many benefits you’ll enjoy on a Central Holidays Italy Escorted Package.  All of this, plus splendid new experiential inclusions are all included in the company’s new Small Group Escorted Tours.
