Toronto, April 2013 â The warm weather is just around the corner and Trafalgar (www.
trafalgar.com) invites travellers to join one of their European trips as spring heads into summer. The insider of guided vacations is featuring 20 departure dates throughout May and June at discounted rates, for trips ranging from 8-31 days, in which travellers can save up to $1990 per couple!* Plus, to assist with the cost of air fees, Trafalgar is also offering travellers $100 off their flights when they book a Europe, Britain, or Eastern Mediterranean holiday by May 31st.** "The period between May and June is actually one of the best times to travel to Europe, as the beautifully manicured gardens come to life and the high travel season hasn't yet begun, meaning fewer crowds and lower travel costs," says Doug Patterson, President of Trafalgar Canada. "These Last Minute Deals are perfect for travellers hoping to beat the mid-summer rush and enjoy Europe outdoors with the locals on Parisian cafĂ© patios and biking throughout Amsterdam." Best of Holland, Belgium and LuxembourgJune 6th departure now $1998 per personAn 11-day journey starting in Amsterdam and ending in Brussels, the Best of Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg offers travellers the best opportunity to see these beautiful countries bloom to life in the early summer months. Guests get an authentic feel for all three countries as they stop at the most iconic cities like Brussels and Bruges. As part of Trafalgar's At Leisure collection, this trip gives guests the best of both travel styles, showing them the must-see sights but also giving them plenty of free time to explore the destination on their own. Guests are treated to many of Trafalgar's Insider Highlights, like a visit to a lace workshop in Bruges, a Local Specialty of the medieval town. In Bruges travellers will also enjoy one of Trafalgar's unique Be My Guest dining experiences as they sit down to dine on Belgian cuisine at an 18th century farmstead with the farmer who was born and raised on the property. Sightseeing highlights include a visit to the 70-acre tulip fields of Keukenhof in Holland, a trip to the fortified city of Maastricht and a sightseeing cruise along the canals in Bruges.Scenic IrelandMay 31st departure now $1517 per personThe 9-day Scenic Ireland was introduced in 2012 as a new itinerary and added to Trafalgar's growing At Leisure collection. With a focus on taking guests to the most picturesque parts of the country, Scenic Ireland offers up the perfect opportunity to explore the vibrant Irish countryside at a relaxed pace during the early summer. The trip starts with a few days in lively Dublin, where guests will receive a morning tour with a local guide then enjoy a day of free time to explore the city by themselves with a hop-on-hop-off sightseeing ticket. Next, a visit to Blarney Castle means guests can get the Irish gift of gab as they tilt themselves upside down to kiss the infamous Blarney Stone. At the breathtaking Dingle Peninsula, Europe's most westerly point, Trafalgar passengers are treated to a special Be My Guest dinner on a beautiful family-owned farm, where they will dine with locals and savour traditional Irish fare. Traveling on to Killaloe on Lough Derg, guests will finish their journey with a Guinness stew and soda bread cooking demonstration which they'll get to enjoy afterwards.Grand EuropeanMay 26th departure now $4759 per personFor one of the most extensive European experiences, travellers can book Trafalgar's Grand European, a 24-day journey throughout some of the continent's most popular cities and cultural hot spots. Arriving in London and departing from Paris, guests will make their way through Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and France. Though it's a multi-country trip, travellers are treated to exclusive regional Insider specialties throughout, like local guides in Pompeii, Rome, Florence, Salzburg and London, as well as 10 fantastic dinners included at favourite local restaurants. Trafalgar invites guests to learn about the Local Specialties of each city as well, as they visit a diamond-polishing factory in Amsterdam and see glass-blowing artisans at work in Venice. Guests are also treated to an incredible experience at the Vatican, exclusive to Trafalgar, as they follow in the footsteps of Michelangelo and da Vinci, ascending Bramante's smooth spiral staircase in an area not open to the public. This itinerary features an endless amount of sightseeing, too, as travellers walk the medieval streets of Bruges, ascend to the second level of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and cruise the romantic Rhine in Germany.For more information on Trafalgar, please contact your local travel agent or visit www.trafalgar.com and follow us on Twitter at @TrafalgarCanada and Facebook.
