Albatross Tours’ feeling Festive as it guarantees remaining places for Christmas 2024 tours
Edited by Travel Weekly

    European tour specialists, Albatross Tours, has guaranteed every tour for Christmas 2024 is a goer.

    “The Albatross festive program has established itself as a real favourite for Australian travellers. We have a fabulous choice of Christmas market locations – Berlin, Dresden, Prague and Ljubljana are just a few,” managing director Shelley Poten said.

    The all-inclusive unique style of travelling is the reason clients choose to travel with them.

    “We slow it down and maximise time in fabulous locations – for example staying five nights at Lake Bled (Christmas in the Slovenian Alps) or 5 nights in Grindelwald (s Swiss Christmas in Grindelwald).”

    Smaller group sizes capped at 28 people means more comfortable travel and a more personal and authentic experience where you can “go where the locals go”. To top it off, they offer unique character accommodation which will make your client’s tour truly memorable.
