Lush Experiences Luxury Travel Expansion

TWO PRESTIGIOUS TOUR OPERATORS JOIN FORCES WITH LUSH EXPERIENCES TO CREATE LIFE AFFIRMING MEMORIES FOR TRAVELERS

The Spain Collection and Casablanca Tours are the latest additions to the Lush Experiences roster of luxury travel providers and properties.

Lush Experiences, one of travel’s premier sales, marketing and representation organizations boasting long-held and deep relationships with travel advisors and members, announced that The Spain Collection and Casablanca Tours  have become a part of the Lush family of luxury properties and travel experience providers. The countries represented by these outstanding and internationally recognized experiential travel providers include Spain, Portugal and Morocco.

The Spain Collection is world-renown for creating outstanding travel experiences  throughout Spain and Portugal, covering areas of traveler interest from nature and sports, to shopping and religious heritage. The group prides itself on creating authentic cultural and traditional connections for its clients, while also supporting local businesses.

“There is no shortage of representation companies to select from but very few stand out the way Lush Experiences does,” said The Spain Collection CEO, Abene Mendizabal. “They share our passion for the region, its history and what it has to offer, and they have the contacts and connections to achieve the business objectives we have set in place to move us forward.”

Casablanca Tours is comprised of native Moroccans residing in the U.S. and as a result, have their fingers on the pulse of what travelers are seeking when visiting the kingdom. Their first-hand, expert knowledge of spectacular sites, fine hotels and food–down to details such as transportation options throughout the country–set them apart from others that serve this multicultural country.

“Knowing the travel industry as I do, it was critical to work with a group that agrees that ‘our special Morocco’ has something to offer every traveler and who appreciates the desire to create the perfect holiday, special occasion or experience of a lifetime. Lush Experiences made that crystal clear to us,” said Souad Seghrouchni, President & Executive Director of Casablanca Tours.

“We are honored to be affirmed and entrusted with the business of two outstanding travel industry veteran providers who share the same passion for travel that we do,” said Brad Beaty, co-founder of Lush Experiences.” When you put your heart and soul into your work as our team does, and respected travel providers like The Spain Collection and Casablanca Tours recognize you for that effort, it is heartening and we are thankful for the trust they have shown in us.”

Thomson Safaris

New York – August 2, 2018 – Thomson Safaris and Thomson Family Adventures have appointed Geoffrey Weill Associates to handle their public relations needs in North America, it was announced today by company President Geoffrey Weill.

Created 38 years ago by the dynamic married duo of Rick Thomson and Judi Wineland, Thomson Safaris specializes in personally crafted trips to Tanzania. To this day, Thomson Safaris uses only local guides in its hand-picked itineraries, offering access to people and areas of the Serengeti that other outfitters can’t.

The company’s Kilimanjaro Treks are some of the most highly respected tours in the region,with the most qualified guides and a 98% summit success. Committed to quality and care, all of their guides are Wilderness Responder Certified. A founding member of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project – an NGO advocating for the rights of porters, Thomson has distinguished itself by upholding the highest standards for the treatment and compensation of porters, launching such initiatives as Porter Appreciation Week in 2018.

Thomson Safaris is the recipient of both a “Tanzania Conservation Award” and “Humanitarian of the Year Award” from The Tanzania Tourist Board. Thomson’s sister nonprofit,  Focus on Tanzanian Communities (FoTZC), was started by Thomson Safaris co-founder Judi Wineland and a group of guests who wanted to bring educational resources to developing regions in Tanzania.

In 1998, with young children, Judi and Rick answered a need by creating Thomson Family Adventures, catering to families of all sizes and composition. Today, Thomson Family Adventures is still the only tour operator in the US exclusively dedicated to family travel. Pioneers in what is now a burgeoning niche market in the travel industry, Thomson Family Adventures now offers more than 90 itineraries and covers regions of North, South and Central America, Africa, Asia and Antarctica. The company also offers specialized tours specifically for teens and millennials, age groups often overlooked in the family market.

“We are thrilled to be adding Thomson Safaris and Thomson Family Adventures to our portfolio of unique travel products,” said Ann-Rebecca Laschever, Executive Vice President of WEILL. “Although they have been offering first-class safari and memorable travel experiences for several years, they are not as known in the industry as they deserve to be. We look forward to changing that.”
