Central Holidays Helps Stretch Travel Dollars on Vacations to Europe











Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy


Moonachie, NJ (PRWEB) April 15, 2008

Central Holidays is helping stretch travel dollars on travel to Europe with a full array of inclusive motorcoach escorted tours and cruise packages that are designed to save travelers time and money.

“Central Holidays’ Motorcoach Escorted Tours and Cruise Packages are a terrific value. We offer a variety of programs that are worry-free and easy, and can meet your budget,” said Fred Berardo, President and CEO of Central Holidays. “Why book hotel, sightseeing, and other vacation components separately when you can save money and time with a Central Holidays vacation package? We want travelers to know that our escorted tour programs will provide them with the best value for their money when visiting all the wonders of Italy and Europe.”

The Company offers dozens of Motorcoach Escorted Tour and Cruise options throughout Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Greece and the Mediterranean! In fact, Central Holidays provides the largest selection of cruise packages in Italy, Greece and throughout the Mediterranean than any other specialty operator. Central Holidays’ Escorted Tour programs will save travelers 20-40% off the price of traveling the same itinerary on their own.

Here’s a look at some of the ways Central Holidays Escorted Tours stretch travelers’ dollars and offer an ideal, hassle-free way of exploring Europe:

1. All rates guaranteed when paid in full – guarding travelers against dollar fluctuations. Booking with Central Holidays allows consumers to budget accurately before embarking on their travels with no surprise fees or taxes imposed upon arrival on vacation

2. Most meals plus wine, coffee and mineral water at lunch and dinner are included in the tour price = a huge savings! Premier Motorcoach Escorted Tours include most meals (breakfast daily – plus many lunches and dinners) served in hotels and local restaurants. The Signature Central Holidays Dining Plan also includes: Wine, mineral water and coffee are complimentary with all lunches and dinners (which itself can save hundreds of dollars per person).

3. Sightseeing (as detailed in each itinerary) is included in the tour package price as well as bonus touring – with Central Holidays travelers visit the famous sites they’ve longed to see as well as hidden treasures, such as centuries-old wineries and carefully selected restaurants serving exquisite old-world cuisine.

4. Convenience in exploring Europe’s beauty lead by one of the company’s knowledgeable, English-speaking tour directors – with travelers throughout the escorted tour, traveling by professionally chauffeured, deluxe, air-conditioned motor coach for maximum comfort and convenience. Plus, there is time offered at leisure to explore on your own too.

5. All-inclusive Mediterranean cruise programs and shore excursions are quoted in US Dollars.

6. Specialty Lodging options take travelers to live like a local on selected programs – For example, On the Northern Highlights, Magnificent North, Grand Tour of Italy and Best of Italy programs, travelers have the opportunity to stay in a villa in the medieval town of San Gimignano, instead of hotel in Florence, where they will enjoy all of the tour’s traditional features, plus a five course welcome dinner and other special extras. A Siena sightseeing excursion is also included with the evening at leisure to explore San Gimignano.

7. All Central Holidays Escorted Tours in Italy feature the “Hear Clear” personal audio system, allowing travelers to hear all the details about the places they visit, even when standing 60 feet away from their knowledgeable local guide – all at additional cost while traveling.

The ending to “The Count Of Tuscany”. To me it’s one of the most beautiful parts i have ever heard, I hope people share this opinion with me. Lyrics: {Petrucci} Could this be the end? Is this the way i die? Sitting here alone No one by my side I don’t understand I don’t feel that i deserve this What did I do wrong? I just don’t understand Give me one more chance Let me please explain It’s all been circumstance I’ll tell you once again You took me for a ride Promising a vast adventure Next thing that i know I’m frightened for my life. {The Count} Now wait a minute man That’s not how it is You must be confused! That isn’t who I am. Please don’t be afraid I would never try to hurt you This is how we live Strange although it seems Please try to forgive The chapel and the saint The soldiers and the wine The fables and the tales All handed down through time Of course you’re free go Go and tell the world my story Tell about my brother Tell them about me The Count Of Tuscany (whoa) With special thanks to Dream Theater® The pictures are from a dutch art designer (“stevetheater”) who has good contacts with DT and RR, he created them himself excluding the band fotos and the Wither pic. If you want them pm me your e-mail and a polite message :) @@@@@@@@@@@ Props to stevetheater! Check his account btw, some nice vids…
