Pawtucket, RI (April 4, 2024) – Collette announces the launch of 10 brand-new tours coming in 2025. The new slate of tours will span across four continents with destinations in North America, South America, Europe, and Africa. These tours will also feature three of Collette’s five travel styles, Classic, Cruising, and small group Explorations.

The following tours will be available for booking, starting in 2025:

  • Gems of Greece: Athens, Naxos, Crete (Explorations)
    • Greece is a destination where crowds have been booming. Collette has designed a tour where travellers will experience two quieter islands: Crete and Naxos.
  • Namibia & South Africa: Epic Landscapes & Wildlife featuring Etosha and Kruger National Parks & Cape Town (Explorations)
    • Namibia’s vast desert scenery and rugged landscape make it a unique destination for any traveller looking to explore lesser known southwest Africa. Those who are hungry for adventure will love embarking on big game drives and visiting a shipwreck on the outskirts of the Skeleton Coast.
  • Portugal’s Old World Charms featuring Douro Valley, Alentejo & Lisbon (Explorations)
    • Portugal is a consistent hot spot for travel - beautiful beaches, hillside towns, food, wine, culture and more. That’s why Collette is adding a Portugal tour to the lineup for 2025 that visits three top destinations Douro Valley, Alentejo, and Lisbon.

    • Visiting eight countries in 13 days, “Europe: The Grand Tour” is perfect for travellers who are looking to venture into Eastern European culture, history, and food.
  • Essential South America featuring Chile, Mendoza Wine Region & Buenos Aires (Explorations)

  • Canadian Rockies and Alaska's Inside Passage featuring Rocky Mountaineer and a 7-night Alaska Cruise (Cruising)

  • Utah's Mighty Five and The Rockies featuring 2 days onboard Rocky Mountaineer
    • After an amazing train trip on Rocky Mountaineer from Denver to Moab, travellers will trek across the Southwest as they take in the sienna-coloured canyons, towering spires, and desert landscapes found in Utah’s five national parks.
