Luxury Gold: Exclusive Insights from Luxury Gold

Our Luxury Gold journeys have seen record growth in the past few years, as travelers seek out unique experiences and culinary delights across our worldwide collection.

I’m excited that Spain, a personal favorite destination, is especially popular this year. I recently spoke with Toni Aguidom, one of our Traveling Concierges who leads guests on our Spain and Portugal in Style journey. He mentioned that travelers love this journey as they get to cross off the bucket list items that they expect, but are even more delighted by the unique, unexpected inclusions.

One of the most celebrated experiences is in Seville, a city famous for its outdoor markets. A master chef guides our travelers on a truly authentic discovery. They explore in small groups, meeting farmers and merchants as they pick ingredients which they later prepare together for an authentic lunch. It’s a culturally immersive experience that the guests don’t expect but absolutely love.
Whether it’s a chef in Seville, a Local Expert in Barcelona, or an art historian in Madrid, local people introduce our guests to secret spots and reveal the destination in a more genuine way. I believe these unique experiences and local insights are what bring our guests back on tour year after year.

Thank you for your incredible support as we welcome more guests on Luxury Gold in 2017 than ever before! While other companies may scale back their support, our commitment to the travel agent community continues to grow. We recently expanded our team with new sales and marketing professionals dedicated to providing you with the tools you need to succeed.

Cheers to successful year ahead – or as they say in Spain – salud!
