Get festive around the world
The festive seasons arrive each year with feelings of excitement and fun. They're a chance to celebrate with friends and family and share moments that are forever remembered. Holiday and seasonal tours build on the magic of these times of year, guiding you through foreign traditions that can open your eyes up to different cultures, people and regions.
Christmas in New Zealand is quite different from countries in the Northern Hemisphere. Those dreaming of a white Christmas can make those fantasies come true with a tour through the cities of America – ice skating at Rockefeller Center, seeing San Francisco vibrant with tinsel and lights, and enjoying a meal in front of a cosy fireplace in Seattle with the snow falling outside. Maybe Christmas for you is better spent discovering new cultures in the historic cities of South Africa, or amongst nature away from the rest of humanity.
Don't bring in the New Year with the same old house party dodging spilt drinks and waiting for the countdown to begin so you can go home. Holiday tours can take you across the globe to the world's biggest New Year's Eve celebrations. Join the all-night festivities at Hogmanay in Edinburgh, roam the strip and choose whichever party strikes your fancy in Vegas, or watch the crystal ball drop in Times Square, New York. For something closer to home you may want to see the fireworks at Sydney Harbour.
You don't have to only travel during the big holidays. Picture a Valentine's Day sitting in a gondola floating down the inner-city rivers of Venice, or dining on a moonlit beach in Bali. How about heading to Melbourne for the biggest racing carnival on the Australian calendar, the Melbourne Cup? Holiday and seasonal tours let you celebrate with the rest of the world during the biggest moments of the year.
