National Geographic Day Tours now available online, at travel agencies and in destination, direct to travellers, independent of a holiday package.
PALMA DE MALLORCA – National Geographic Day Tours, a collection of one-day and half-day itineraries inspired by National Geographic’s spirit of exploration and adventure, are now available to book online, in travel agencies and in destination, and for the first time can be purchased directly by travellers, independent of any holiday package. Operated by TUI, ensuring a seamless and responsible travel experience, Day Tours are designed in collaboration with National Geographic Expeditions and incorporate unique elements and the captivating storytelling of National Geographic, with a focus on nature, science, conservation, education, culture, gastronomy and history. Many of the tours offer special access to areas closed to the general public, and feature subject matter experts, such as archaeologists, marine biologists, chefs, farmers, photographers, historians and scholars.
Over 40 new land experiences are now available in beach and city destinations, with further tours in development. Destinations operating National Geographic Day Tours include Barcelona, Cancun, Crete, Paphos, New York, Naples, Tenerife and many more. All National Geographic Day Tours are conducted in small groups, follow the strict criteria of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and are led by National Geographic-trained guides. The launch of National Geographic Day Tours reinforces TUI’s strategic focus on Tours & Activities as a key growth area for the business.
“National Geographic Day Tours are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, with something for everyone, whether you’re a beach enthusiast or a city explorer. These are carefully crafted tours that tell stories of their destinations, honouring the National Geographic legacy and providing top quality, authentic, local experiences.” says Peter Ulwahn, CEO of TUI Musement, the Tours & Activities division of TUI Group. “Developing and operating unique, differentiated products is a key part of TUI Musement’s growth strategy and we are excited to continue this with National Geographic Expeditions.”
Traveling with National Geographic Day Tours helps to support the work of the global community of National Geographic Explorers around the world since a portion of the proceeds from every tour goes to the global nonprofit National Geographic Society. These funds support National Geographic in its work to protect and illuminate our world through exploration, research, and education.
“National Geographic Day Tours immerse travelers in extraordinary locales and distinctive cultures, all of which are brought to life through the incredible knowledge and brilliant storytelling of National Geographic-trained guides. With new itineraries added to our ever-growing portfolio, the tours can be booked directly by travelers as they explore the world,” said Nancy Schumacher, Venior vice President and General Manager, National Geographic Expeditions.
