Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best” Operator Responds to Client Dream List Wishes –
Breaks New Ground in Luxury Multisport Adventure
Billings, MT, October 6, 2010 – The active travel company that set the adventure tour standard in Yellowstone National Park and then took their winning formula to Europe, Africa and beyond just released its 2011 catalog that includes two new groundbreaking tours in Israel and Morocco.Â Clients of Austin-Lehman AdventuresÂ have been asking for these “dream” destinations for years and the tour company responded with Israel & Jordan – Tel Aviv to Petra and Morocco – Fez to Marrakech.
“2011 is poised to be an exciting year for Austin Lehman Adventures,” predicts Dan Austin, Co-Founder and Director. “2010 saw double digit growth in all regions and gave us the confidence to finalize years of trip development to some of the most exciting destination on the planet.”
Dan explains that it always begins with a survey of ALA’s past alumni and their dream list responses of where they most want to go in the future. Then it takes hundreds of hours of research, negotiations, itinerary development and site visits to create a new tour. But the key element is value and tour pricing that puts a superior product below that of the competition.
“As we finalized rates and dates for 2011, we made the conscious decision to keep our pricing as low as possible to allow more travelers the opportunity to experience the world of Austin-Lehman Adventures,” explained Austin. “Our guests are well traveled, well educated, and savvy shoppers. When they check around they will see that ALA has not only been acknowledged as one of the Best Tour Operators in the World, but that we do what we do with exceptional value.”
Of the 18 new itineraries and destinations being offered in 2011, Austin-Lehman Adventures’ http://www.austinlehman.com/ the Israel & Jordan and Morocco trips might be the company’s most ambitious to date, Austin claims.
