Embracing the joy of Christmas: 7 reasons you should consider travelling at Christmas 

The holiday season is a magical time filled with warmth, joy, and the spirit of giving. For many, Christmas is a time to create cherished memories with loved ones, and what better way to do so than by embarking on a Christmas tour? Travelling on a tour during this festive season offers a plethora of benefits that can make your Christmas truly special. 

  1. Stress-Free Planning: Planning a Christmas getaway can be a daunting task with so many details to consider. Opting for a tour takes the stress out of planning, as expert organisers handle all the logistics. From accommodations and transportation to activities and meals, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the festivities without worrying about the details. 
  2. Immersive Festive Atmosphere: Christmas tours often take you to destinations that go all out in decorating and celebrating the season. Whether it’s a charming European Christmas market or a snowy wonderland in a picturesque town, these tours ensure you’re immersed in a festive atmosphere, enhancing the joy of the season. 
  3. Cultural Experiences: Travelling during Christmas allows you to experience unique cultural traditions and celebrations. Different regions have their own special customs and festivities, and a holiday tour provides an opportunity to witness and participate in these heartwarming traditions, enriching your understanding of diverse cultures. 
  4. Quality Time with Loved Ones or Making New Connections: A Christmas tour provides the perfect setting for creating lasting memories with family and friends, whilst also providing opportunities to make new connections if travelling solo. Whether you’re exploring a charming city, enjoying a sleigh ride, or sharing a festive meal, the shared experiences on a tour create bonds that will be cherished for years to come. 
  5. Expert Guides: Tour guides are well-versed in the local culture and history, adding depth to your Christmas experience. They can offer insights into the significance of local traditions, share captivating stories, and ensure you make the most of your time in each destination. 
  6. No Cooking or Cleaning: One of the joys of a Christmas tour is the freedom from cooking elaborate meals and dealing with the aftermath. Enjoy delicious festive meals prepared by local chefs without the stress of shopping, cooking, and cleaning up. This allows you to focus on what truly matters – the joy of the season. 
  7. Unexpected Surprises: Tours often include special surprises and activities that are carefully curated to enhance your Christmas experience. Whether it’s a surprise visit from Santa, a festive performance, or a unique local tradition, these unexpected delights add an extra layer of magic to your holiday adventure. 

Travelling on a holiday tour during Christmas offers a stress-free, immersive, and culturally rich experience that allows you to fully embrace the joy of the season. While the comforts of home are undeniably appealing during Christmas, venturing into the world during this festive season can offer a rich tapestry of experiences, cultural exchanges, and memorable moments. 

Just recently, we received a heartwarming message from Kerry, a client of Zeppelin Travel, that captures the joy and camaraderie experienced on a Scenic Christmas in the Rockies Tour:

“Just sending you a big thank you for your assistance in getting this holiday off the ground. We depart Banff today for Calgary and our overnight stop at the Hyatt Regency, saying goodbye to the lovely friends we have made. 

There were only 24 guests on the tour so we very quickly became a family. 

Our tour guide Cathy and driver John couldn’t be faulted and they also helped make the trip a fantastic experience. 

I have attached a photo of the three of us on Christmas day at our private dinner, and one of myself with Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Christmas day buffet breakfast!”
