May 4th 2009

We are delighted to say our new Walk in Bronte Country, Designed and Led by native Yorkshireman Alan Pinkney, has been chosen by National Geographic Traveler Magazine (May/June 2009 Issue) in their Top 50 Trips of a Lifetime. 'Every year, the editorial team combs the world to find the most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours,' notes senior editor Norie Quintos. 'This year, we wanted to make sure that the trips we picked were also a great value, given the economic climate. What we found is that there is no better time to go on a guided tour than now as the traditional savings offered by an outfitter being able to negotiate better rates on a trip’s components is magnified by cheaper airfares, a strengthened dollar, and more discounts, freebies, and extras.' The tours on this year’s list are organized into three categories—active, classic, and cultural—and include 47 tour listings, plus in-depth features on an alternative route to Peru’s iconic Machu Picchu, a tour of Old Bavaria, a self-guided ramble through Newfoundland. You won’t find any $50,000 round-the-world by private jet tours on this year’s list. On the other hand, many of our tours don’t necessarily qualify as 'cheap.' But every tour, whatever its price tag, offers small-group, thoughtfully crafted experiences that are eco- and culturally sensitive, provide uncommon access, and foster interaction with the locals. The Bronte Trail Walk is a new departure for The Wayfarers. For lovers of 19th-century English literature, the discovery of the land that nurtured and inspired the Bronte sisters will be an exciting journey. Alan Pinkney says, "I have designed this walk personally and, as a Yorkshireman and a Bronte fan, I am delighted to be able to introduce this inspirational part of the country to The Wayfarers." 2009 Trip Dates: The Bronte Trail: June 14-19 July 26-31 (Women Only Departure) September 6-11 6 Days, 5 Nights **Save USD$400 per person on this trip**
