Ormina Tours launches first ever famil in Piedmont, Italy
Ormina Tours has announced their first Famil Tour to the Australian marketplace. The tour will take a selected group agents on their newly released Piedmont Tour in Italy, giving them the opportunity to experience the spectacular hotels and services that Ormina Tours is renound for.
The tour will depart from Milan on 22 April, 2018, and close on 27 April, following the 6 day food, wine and truffles tour around the undiscovered region.
The offer for agents is somewhat unique in that Ormina Tours will give them an opportunity to select another agent from their office to join them on the experience and there are limited spots for agents to bring a non-industry friend or partner at 50 percent of the cost.
“We believe that travel is best experienced with friends and family and we in the industry so often end up travelling alone. We wanted to give our agents the opportunity to share this experience with their loved ones. After all, travel is about celebrating life and that’s an experience that should be shared.”
Piedmont is home to one of Italy’s finest winegrowing regions, contains the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Langhe area, produces the world-famous Alba white truffle and is at the centre of the Slow Food movement, yet remains largely undiscovered by travellers to Italy.
Included in the famil are a number of highlights; a truffle hunt with a hunting dog on a local family property; a wine appreciation masterclass and tasting with a sommelier; a 3-course dinner and pairing in Chef Famiano Nigro’s one star Michelin restaurant; and a cooking class that unlocks the local culinary secrets.
“Those coming on the famil will be some of the first guests to experience our newly launched Piedmont Tour, which has departures dates for the public starting from May next year”, says Ross Ioppolo, CEO of Ormina Tours. “We’re excited to give agents the opportunity to experience Ormina Tours for themselves, and give them a better idea of the product they are selling on to their clients”.
For the chance to be selected for the famil agents must register their interest online and also must have booked and deposited a Small Group Journey or Private Journey to the value of $7,000 NETT by 31 January 2018. Selected agents will be advised by 10 February and must commit by 20 February 2018.
