“We’re proud to offer our guests a robust selection of off-season itineraries throughout Europe,” said Melissa DaSilva, president of Trafalgar, in press materials. “No matter the season, our vacations are crafted to highlight the best of each destination, giving guests the opportunity to connect with the local communities that make each place so special. Our Autumn, Winter and Spring itineraries allow for the same incredible experiences without the crowds, while supporting local businesses that can often struggle after the peak season rush dies down.”
New trips include the Best of Scotland, a week-long itinerary uncovering one of the brand’s most popular countries, taking in Glasgow, the Highlands and Edinburgh.
