Welcome to a

JOURNEY BEYOND THE ORDINARY

The events of the past few months have profoundly affected all of us. While each new operating year brings about changes, 2021 will be especially different. But what hasn’t changed is what has always been most important to us – the wellbeing of our guests. Being part of a family-run company that’s been in business for over 100 years and is proudly debt free, means you can travel with the reassurance that we have put numerous new measures in place to elevate our hygiene standards and protocols. Our Travelling Concierges are there to support you throughout every step of your journey – your wellbeing always has been, and always will be, our top priority. In 2021 we invite you to venture to Peru on a small group journey, where you’ll meet a Quechua scholar and a recipient of a TreadRight Foundation grant. Learn about her mission to preserve traditional weaving techniques and how she has succeeded in bringing weaving once more to the forefront of her community. Supporting local businesses and communities has always been important to us, and now even more so during these exceptional times. The following pages bring the wonders of North and South America to life. Read on and be inspired by the exclusive experiences that we have curated to bring back the golden era of travel. Bon voyage!

Century CELEBRATING OUR FIRST

OF MAKING TRAVEL PERSONAL

A

s the Chairman of The Travel Corporation (TTC), in my over 60 years of exploring, I have been fortunate to build an incredibly successful travel company, together with my family and a brilliant team of industry professionals. The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of our family’s legacy in travel. In 1920, my parents Evelyn and Solomon Tollman laid the foundation for what would become TTC by opening a small hotel in Paternoster, 150 km up the Atlantic coast from Cape Town, South Africa.

to a collection of 42 niche travel brands that welcome guests from all over the world. Over the decades, our family’s passion for discovery and seeking out new experiences has combined with our drive to create superb quality, service and value in every travel business we have built.

“Always in pursuit of excellence”

It was in that hotel that my family’s passion for service developed. My father treated every guest as though they were his only guest, welcoming each with the warmth and hospitality he had not found in his own travels. Working day and night, he built that hotel into a thriving business. In the process, he defined our family legacy: Driven by Service.

As a family, we are “always in pursuit of excellence,” and our philosophy of always delivering the best has driven us to create some of the most luxurious, award-winning hospitality companies, from the world-renowned Red Carnation Hotels to Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection.

While much has changed over the past 100 years, this passionate focus has remained exactly the same, and is precisely the attitude that defines each company within The Travel Corporation today. Alongside my wife Beatrice and our children, we’ve expanded from that single hotel

A few years ago, I decided to apply our tremendous experience in luxury hospitality to create a travel company that provides the very best, immersive luxury travel experiences with the perfect blend of guided and independent exploration – and so, Luxury Gold was born.

FAMILY VALUES

A LONG TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE IN TRAVEL Luxury Gold is part of The Travel Corporation family of brands.

Luxury Gold is motivated by my personal love of travel and my collection of cherished moments that I wish to share with you, enabling you to enhance your travel senses and experiences, as you dream and discover the world with us. Through my Chairman’s Collection of exclusive experiences, we’ve called upon our extensive connections to introduce you to the world’s legendary locals, including opportunities to mingle with European nobility and starry icons in the USA & Canada. For example, on select departures of the Treasures of the Incas journey, you’ll meet the patriarch of one of Peru’s most prominent families, Dr. Francisco Diez-Canseco Távara, for a reception at his beautiful villa. These are just a few examples of what Luxury Gold makes possible. Now, at my personal invitation, let’s explore the world together.

Bon Voyage! Stanley Tollman Evelyn & So

As a fourth-generation, family-owned and passionately run travel company, TTC shares its 100-year heritage and expertise in creating enriching travel and hospitality experiences with our guests.

Stanley Tollman & Brett Tollman LOYALTY DESERVES TO BE REWARDED Past guests of Luxury Gold and our sister brands are eligible for exclusive benefits. For more details on where you can travel with TTC please visit TTC.com/loyalty.
