Explore niche destinations without the crowds

Small group operator Bunnik Tours has launched its new Europe program for 2019 and is offering earlybird discounts of $500 per person for all bookings made by 28 Sep and $250 per person for all bookings made by 21 December.

“Our 2018 Europe small group touring program has been selling fantastically,” said Sacha Bunnik, managing director of Bunnik Tours.

“This year we have had a 30-40% growth on our 2017 bookings. We’ve had great results for our Europe 2019 pre-release as well, a good indication that our growth will only continue to increase next season.”

The program features three new tours plus 18 returning itineraries, and spans across Europe with trips in eastern, western, southern and northern Europe, along with Arctic Norway and Spain.

Bunnik’s new destinations include Urbino and Locorotondo in Italy, with travellers able to explore the Frasassi Caves and ancient cities, along with a new 24-day Turkey and Greece tour. Starting in Istanbul travellers explore Athens, Cappadocia, Meteora and the Greek Islands, while taking in sights of colourful bazaars, islands and clifftop monasteries.

The other popular tour is the 26-day Moscow to Prague, which travels through Russia, the Baltics and eastern Europe, where clients can explore castles, a soviet bunker and palaces. Also part of the program is the 21-day Jewels of Dalmatia, exploring Lake Bled in Slovenia and the ever-popular Croatia.

Bunnik has a maximum group size of 20 passengers in Europe, allowing clients to get better views, more tour guide time and less time spent waiting.
