KEEPING IT in the family Collette has been family owned for three generations. Today, Dan Sullivan Jr., CEO, works alongside his daughter and President, Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, to craft the perfect travel experience for each and every guest.

“Travel is good for the soul. Expand your horizons, making new friends and tasting new foods, seeing wonders you’ve always wanted to see and finding things along the way you didn’t even know you were waiting for that’s what travel is all about. So why don’t we travel more often?”

Dan J. Sullivan Jr. CEO

BY CROATIA & ITS ISLANDS

Croatia is a masterpiece of the Mediterranean. Board your private yacht and soak in picturesque views of the Adriatic, admire wonderfully-preserved architecture, and savour delicious Istrian cuisine. FIND THE NEW CROATIA TOUR ON PAGE 62.

INTRO_CAN.indd 10

9/5/19 11:44 AM


COMPLEX HISTORY

COMPLEX HISTORY Due to its proximity to the Balkans and Italy, Croatia has been under the rule of several different empires for close to a thousand years. This complicated legacy is something you’ll see reflected through the presence of Venetian castles, Slavic churches and socialist realist apartment complexes. One of the most impressive remnants of the Roman empire is Diocletian’s Palace. This extensive stone structure located in Split was where Emperor Diocletian retired to after his commanding reign.

STUNNING ISLANDS

STUNNING ISLANDS If you prefer to relax seaside, Croatia boasts over 1,100 miles of shoreline and over 1,000 islands. Cruise aboard your private, 19-cabin yacht to Bol to find the Golden Cape Beach. Relax on its white, pebbly beach and admire the sapphire waters glittering in the sun. On the island of Biševo, you can take a glimpse at the Blue Cave, a stunning grotto with a luminous blue glow. Then, head from western Croatia to Opatija. Amble along the promenade built along the winding waterfront and take in a panorama of secluded bays, posh resorts and azure surf.

DELICIOUS CUISINE

DELICIOUS CUISINE You also can’t miss the cuisine in Croatia. While there is plenty of Mediterranean fare to find here, you should sample Istrian food. Incorporating influences from Italy, Turkey, Austria and Hungary, Istrian cuisine offers a melting pot of delicious flavours. Fresh, seasonal fare reigns supreme here along with reliance on regional farmers and local producers. Standout specialties include wild asparagus, truffles and oysters. Dobar tek!

GET TO KNOW our tour managers each tour manager brings something unique to the travel experience - and Chad Nelson is no exception What made you choose the adventurous life of a Tour Manager? I had a couple of meaningful opportunities to travel when I was younger, and I think that the idea caught hold and grew in me. My dad helped plan his organization’s annual meetings, so every couple of years my mom and I would get to tag along to visit places like New Orleans, Jamaica, San Francisco, or London. I have really great memories of our experiences in unfamiliar places. I love realizing connections between far-away places and seeing how interconnected the world is. What makes you unique as a Tour Manager? I have an undergraduate degree in plant science and a Master

MEET

chad nelson collette tour manager for 5 years

of Landscape Architecture Degree, so I always am looking to the trees and plants of a new place to learn things about it. Of course, this plays into any tours I lead. I’m glad to say that many of the guests love that I know about many of the plants we encounter on tour, and many of them share my interest in gardens. What’s a must-try experience on tour? I’m a reasonably adventurous eater, so I like trying new foods, and telling guests about foods that might expand their horizons on tour. It’s a humbling superpower - I’ve come to realize that when I mention an unusual flavour of ice cream, like black currants and cream, there will definitely be a run on that flavour the next time we pass an ice cream store. Not every guest loves every new food I mention, but hopefully they get a little perspective on foods they don’t find at home. What’s your go-to Tour Manager “fun fact?” One thing I love about my job is how well it works with my FitBit - I average walking a little over 3,000 miles a year. A lot of times I am in weekly competitions with my FitBit friends to see who walks the most in any given week. I know some people now avoid challenging me, since it is easy for me to rack up steps most days. It has to make me laugh - hopefully we can still be friends!

Chad’s top 3 travel tips 1

2 3

Consider flying in a day early if you are travelling a long distance. This will give you a buffer for any travel delays, and will hopefully help you feel better-rested when the tour begins. Come prepared to meet new people and hopefully make some new friends. “Train” for your tour by walking a little each day in the shoes that you plan to wear on tour - I would do this for at least two weeks before the tour.

Oberammergau

Passion Play 2020 Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-decade experience! Nestled in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, less than a two-hour drive from Munich, the quaint village of Oberammergau is one of Europe’s most unique destinations. Every ten years, this town draws visitors from across the globe as host to what is regarded as the most important Passion Play in the world. The Passion Play, an epic event that traces Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, is a moving feast of drama and music. In 1633 soldiers returning home from the Thirty Years War brought with them the Black Plague. After much death and suffering, leaders of the community in Oberammergau came together, pledging to hold a play honouring the life of Christ every ten years. From that day forward, no additional villagers perished from the plague. The event continues today with performers all native to the village. When you choose one of our special departures that includes the Passion Play, you’ll receive your ticket and stay right in Oberammergau at a hotel conveniently located near the auditorium. The auditorium where the play will be held offers comfortable seats set on an incline, providing everyone with a good view. During a break in the performance, you’ll join your fellow travellers for dinner before returning for the remainder of your Passion Play performance. This powerful play is not to be missed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED questions accommodations

What is the difference between a twin room and a double room? In certain countries, hotel rooms tend to be smaller than Canadian standard accommodations. A double room is designed to accommodate two people, but may not have two separate beds. A twin bedded room has two separate beds of any size, and is the type most commonly utilized. What size is a triple room? A triple room is the same size as a twin bedded room and beds will accommodate three people, but we cannot guarantee that there will be three separate beds. If there are only two beds, a rollaway may be requested but cannot be guaranteed due to size of room and fire codes. Please inquire at time of reservation. Can my children travel on tour? Children over the age of 5 may travel on a Collette tour accompanied by an adult. Child land rates are valid for ages 5-12, sharing a room with two full-paying adults. Are single and triple rooms always available? On many tours, triple and single accommodations are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. Be advised that single rooms are often smaller. When can I check into my hotel? Normal check-in time is late afternoon in most locations. Due to early arrival times into some cities, rooms may not always be available for immediate check-in.

air

Can Collette book our airline reservations? Collette is happy to assist you in accommodating your flight needs. Due to tour scheduling and limited availability, you are strongly encouraged to take advantage of Collette’s air packages. We are not responsible for air arrangements you have made on your own. On occasion, it is necessary to change tour dates. In this case, we can only protect air reservations booked through Collette. For all air reservations, it is strongly recommended to reconfirm flights before departure, in the event that the airline has an unexpected schedule change. We cannot assume responsibility for schedule changes, routings or flight cancellations involving the airlines. Not all airlines offer pre-assigned seats. Some charge a fee for seats which will be at the guests’ expense. Where pre-assigned seats are not offered, the guests must contact the airline directly to arrange seat assignments.

attractions & sightseeing Are attractions always available? Access to some attractions or Collette Foundation sites may be affected by the observance of holidays, weather conditions or other circumstances. As a result, the days and order of sightseeing may change to best utilize your time on tour. Boat rides are weather permitting. Some attractions may not be available during the “off-season” months. When attractions are unavailable, other similar attractions will be substituted. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed. Is there a lot of walking on tour? We pride ourselves on bringing travellers the very best experiences a destination offers. Our itineraries include many activities and may consist of walking on uneven terrain or significant walking at times. Some of the most unique sightseeing can mean accessing locations that restrict motorcoaches, especially in historic areas. Some hotels/lodges in remote locations may not have elevators. For your comfort, we recommend bringing walking shoes. Review each tour’s “Tour Activity Level” and “Tour Pacing” (pg 127) for details.

Can you tell me more about the safaris? In order to most fully experience the wildlife, you will be traveling by custom-built safari vehicle which requires climbing in and out frequently and sometimes travels on bumpy roads. To experience Africa fully, we recommend that all travellers be in reasonably good health and prepare properly. How can I plan for shore landings? Special clothing is required for the shore landings (Antarctica, Galapagos); please refer to your predeparture documents for important details. Are all theater performances suitable for children? Some theater performances may be unsuitable for children – consult your Tour Manager.

documentation

Do I need a passport? Government-issued identification is required for all air travel. A valid passport is required for all trips outside Canada. All passengers should check with the appropriate foreign consulate for entry and validity requirements. We recommend that your passport has seven months validity, and at least 3 blank pages. Passports and visas are the responsibility of each client. In South Africa, children are required to have a passport as well as additional documentation to travel with you into and out of the country. Please consult the South African Embassy for the current specific requirements related to your travel dates. If travelling internationally with a child under the age of 18, please check directly with the airline for the legal documentation that is required. It is the sole responsibility of the guest to procure the proper documentation to travel and many requirements vary by airline and destination. Collette will not be responsible for costs incurred for missed flights or canceled tours where a guest fails to secure proper documentation.

extending your stay

Can I extend my tour to see more of a region? Yes! You may enhance your tour by purchasing either an extension or pre/post hotel stays, offered on select tours. Extensions may be “hosted” rather than escorted. When hosted, passengers will be greeted upon arrival by a local tour manager who will provide all included services and be available on-call during the duration of the extension. A minimum number of passengers may be required to operate some extensions. Extensions not purchased at time of deposit are subject to availability and applicable charges at time of request. Collette also offers pre and post hotel nights before and/or after a tour for you to explore the destination independently. Should you purchase additional nights, please be advised that your Tour Manager will not be available during this time.

extras

What is not included in the tour price? The land price does not include air travel, airline fees, airport or departure taxes, transfers, visas, customary end-oftrip gratuities for your Tour Manager, driver, local guides, hotel housekeepers, cruise ship waitstaff, and any incidental charges.

RESERVATION INFO

How can I be best prepared for the pacing and physical requirements on a Collette tour? Tour pacing varies by itinerary, and each destination’s sightseeing and activities are unique. Pacing is subject to personal interpretation. At Collette, we do include the best a destination has to offer, enhancing your overall tour experience. For overnight pacing of a tour, please refer to the “Accommodations” section on each tour page and on the tour map. These describe the number of nights you will stay in each hotel during your tour. The day-by-day descriptions will provide additional details about the number of activities included in each day. The Tour Activity Level Ranking is featured on each tour itinerary. The definition of each activity level is listed here. If you have additional questions regarding a specific tour, please inquire at time of reservation. For your comfort, we recommend packing comfortable walking shoes so you can fully enjoy every aspect of your tour. Level 1: At a very leisurely pace, this tour involves minimal physical activity, such as climbing some stairs, boarding a motorcoach, and walking from the hotel reception area to hotel rooms and dining areas. Level 2: This tour requires average physical activity. You should be in good health, able to climb stairs and walk reasonable distances, possibly over uneven ground and cobblestoned streets. Level 3: This tour includes moderate physical activity. The itinerary blends some longer days with shorter days and more leisure time. Walking tours, as well as walking slightly longer distances, up stairs or on uneven walking surfaces should be expected.

EXTENSIONS

Can I make changes to my reservation? Should you decide to change your reservation after initial booking, a handling fee of $25 per transaction will be charged. A change of tour date, tour itinerary or passenger name, within the guidelines of the cancellation policy, will be treated as a cancellation and regular cancellation fees may apply. Revisions to air tickets are subject to the rules and regulations of the airline. See our Cancellation Policy for more details.

MORE TIME ON TOUR

Can I prepurchase optional excursions/activities? Yes, the majority of optional excursions and activities are available for advance purchase for applicable tours provided that you make your options purchase prior to 15 days of the tour departure. Collette makes it convenient to reserve presold options by visiting our website for a full listing of activities and excursions or when your reservation is made with our reservations staff. In addition, there are benefits to prepurchasing options including a price guarantee once your tour is paid in full. So, while the cost of an optional activity may change from the time you book your tour, once payment is received in full, your preselected options are guaranteed by Collette at their original price. Although you can still purchase options while on tour, reserving them ahead of time ensures you a spot in the event that the activity sells out. Collette will provide a refund if you cancel a presold option prior to tour departure. Any presold options canceled while on tour are nonrefundable.

Collette’s Travel Protection Plan (for Canadian citizens or residents only*)

Following is an outline of the Non-Insurance Pre-Departure Cancellation Fee Waiver, Insurance Benefits and non-insurance assistance services that make up the Travel Protection Plan. Part A Waiver Only provided by Collette Tours Canada, Ltd: The Pre-Departure Cancellation Fee Waiver is provided by Collette and is not an insurance benefit underwritten by Old Republic Insurance Company of Canada. Payment of a per person Travel Protection Plan fee to Collette at the time of booking guarantees a full refund of all payments (including deposits), except the Travel Protection Plan fee itself, for travel arrangements in case of cancellation of your travel plans for any reason prior to the day of departure. The Travel Protection Plan fee with air only covers airline tickets that you purchase from Collette. Exception: If you originally purchased nonrefundable airline tickets, this Part A Travel Protection Plan does not provide a refund for any such nonrefundable airline tickets in the event of a cancellation. This air ticket may be covered by Collette’s Travel Protection Plan under Part B, if you cancel your trip for covered reasons (see Part B for more details). The Part A Waiver portion of Collette’s Travel Protection Plan protects you from penalties in the event you have a need to cancel your entire inclusive tour package up to the day prior to departure. The Part A Waiver portion of the Travel Protection Plan does not indemnify you from penalties if you choose to cancel partial tour components or air. If you choose to partially cancel your tour, you will be responsible for a revision fee as well as any penalties that are incurred at the time of the cancellation. Collette’s Part A Waiver portion of the Travel Protection Plan does not cover any single supplement charges which arise from an individual’s travelling companion electing to cancel for any reason prior to departure. In this case, the single supplement will be deducted from the refund of the person who cancels. (However, the Part B Benefits referenced below include a single supplement benefit of $1,000 for certain covered reasons, as detailed in Part B.) Division of this charge between the two passengers involved is solely their responsibility. If insufficient funds are deducted from the cancelling client, the travelling client will be charged the remaining portion of the single supplement. The Travel Protection Plan fee is nontransferable and valid for each applicant (paying client) only. Collette assumes no responsibility for and cannot and will not be held liable for any wrongful, negligent or unauthorized acts or omissions of any travel agent or travel agency other than that of Collette Tours Canada, Ltd. and its own employees, directors and officers.
