VIP access, less traditional excursion options and a lot more small-ship sailing. Those are some of the trends tour operators are focusing on for 2020.
With the rise of overtourism, tour operators in recent years have been building in more after-hours and private access to both exclusive and popular but crowded attractions.
Tauck and Luxury Gold will expand those options next year on tours to Egypt, which once again has become a hot destination.
Tauck is launching two itineraries there in 2020 — its first since 2011 — that will feature an exclusive after-hours, private tour of the Valley of the Kings, including a visit to the tomb of King Tutankhamen. Each of the tours will also include a multiple-night Nile cruise.
