Qual­ity pil­grim­age tours

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MATTA FAIR -

WORLD Dis­cov­ery Travel is a spe­cial­ist in Chris­tian- in­ter­est tours. At the heart of the busi­ness is its man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, In­bam Solomon, whose pas­sion for Chris­tian- in­ter­est tours is in­fec­tious.

When Solomon first took the helm, she had a vi­sion of de­vel­op­ing a Chris­tian tour de­part­ment and to­day, World Dis­cov­ery is syn­ony­mous with qual­ity Chris­tian pil­grim­age tours to the Holy­land, Bib­li­cal Chris­tian- in­ter­est pro­grammes to Tur­key, Greece and Italy and even cus­tomised itin­er­ar­ies for the once- a- decade Ober­am­mer­gau Pas­sion Play in Ger­many.

Qual­ity prod­uct and ser­vices

“A lot of plan­ning and re­search with lec­tur­ers go into the de­vel­op­ment of our itin­er­ar­ies. We also view feed­back from our clients as in­stru­men­tal in the evo­lu­tion of our itin­er­ar­ies – en­sur­ing the qual­ity of our prod­uct and ser­vice.

“It is also very im­por­tant we part­ner with rep­utable in­dus­try lead­ers, such as Emi­rates, that of­fers of­fer great flex­i­bil­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity,” says Solomon.

Her first group to Jerusalem was back in 1997 and her pas­sion and ded­i­ca­tion to en­able pil­grims make their dream a re­al­ity has flour­ished into an en­tire de­part­ment.

Word of mouth from many sat­is­fied clients is tes­ta­ment to her suc­cess. How­ever, she claims her real re­ward is hear­ing tes­ti­monies the pil­grims share of their jour­ney, and know­ing there’s an in­tan­gi­ble in­vest­ment at work.

A few spa­ces are still avail­able for the Novem­ber school hol­i­days and Chi­nese New Year hol­i­days Pil­grim­age de­par­tures. Clients are ad­vised to con­tact the Chris­tian tour spe­cial­ists on the pro­grammes of­fered and dead­line for ac­cept­ing regis­tra­tions.

World Dis­cov­ery also caters to clients seek­ing more cus­tomised ar­range­ments – pri­vate tours, fit­ting in a hol­i­day to co­in­cide with an over­seas wed­ding or grad­u­a­tion, or even more be­spoke ex­pe­ri­ences like plan­ning a hol­i­day to com­mem­o­rate a spe­cial birth­day or wed­ding an­niver­sary.

“We re­cently planned a hol­i­day for a 75th birth­day, which was partly self- drive, partly pri­vate tour and in­cluded a sit- in- coach day trip to meet both bud­get and ex­pec­ta­tions of the fam­ily,” says a man­ager in the Tour de­part­ment, He­len- Ra­jes, who has been do­ing cus­tomised pro­grammes for over eight years.

Spe­cial of­fer

“This MATTA Fair, we are very ex­cited to have ne­go­ti­ated a spe­cial of­fer for Lon­don ground ar­range­ments from just RM999,” she adds.

“Most Malaysians vis­it­ing Lon­don are not first- timers, so they usu­ally have some idea of what they want to see and do and just need some essentials to com­ple­ment the air­line of­fers avail­able – for ex­am­ple, Emi­rates might be on sale at un­der RM3,000, in­clud­ing taxes, so you could see Lon­don for un­der RM4,000 all in.

“We also have our Dubai Stopover from just RM199 back by pop­u­lar de­mand as it was a best seller for us in March.”

World Dis­cov­ery Travel is a pre­ferred part­ner for MATTA Fair deals with Emi­rates and has an ex­clu­sive Dubai stopover pro­mo­tion and stu­dent fares avail­able for MATTA Fair.

World Dis­cov­ery Travel has been serv­ing clients since 1989 and is pleased to of­fer cus­tomised flights and ground ar­range­ments to a va­ri­ety of des­ti­na­tions.
