Mazda Travel has partnered with APT to offer their Canada & Alaska tour and cruise programs exclusively to Indian travel agents. Mernoz Shastri, Director, Mazda Travel, says, “We are well-known as the India GSA for the Rocky Mountaineer. It was only logical that we partner with APT who have over 90 years history as Australia’s largest and most successful tour operator. Their award-winning Canada and Alaska tours make Mazda Travel a one-stop shop for Indian agents wanting to offer their clients the trip of a lifetime to this beautiful part of the world.” APT offers unique inclusions in their fully-inclusive programs that include ‘Freedom of Choice’ dining where guests are free to choose when, where and who they dine with from multi-choice menus in a variety of restaurants. ‘Freedom of Choice’ sightseeing allows them to select the activity that best suits their interest from a comprehensive range of options, along with guaranteed view rooms at Fairmont hotels and Resorts, luxurious Wi-Fi equipped coaches and the best tour directors in the business.
Another feature of the APT range is the inclusion of a seven-night Inside Passage Cruise on Holland America Line or Princess Cruise ships. Craig James, Sales Manager, APT, says, “We always have the cruise at the end of your land tour, it’s a highlight amongst many great experiences and it is wonderful to enjoy the land tour but still have the spectacular cruise to look forward to.” APT tours have no hidden extra costs or optional excursions. All tipping, round-trip airport transfers, porterage, port charges and more are all included in the commissionable price.
Explaining why Mazda Travel chose to partner with APT, Shastri says, “I spend a lot of time in Canada visiting hotels etc. Everywhere I go I ask tourists ‘how are you enjoying your tour’? Without a doubt the APT guests were always the happiest and most satisfied. That is probably testament to APT’s 98 per cent guest satisfaction rate. The signature experiences APT offers are also very special, like early access to Victoria’s Butchart Gardens before the crowds arrive.”
Mazda Travel will also offer Travelmarvel Canada and Alaska touring products. Travelmarvel is a value brand offering all the highlights of the region and Silver Leaf service on the Rocky Mountaineer (upgrades available). APT’s Australia inbound products such as Kimberley Wilderness Adventures and Outback Wilderness Adventures can also be booked with Mazda Travel along with a host of other APT and Travelmarvel global destinations.
