Renaissance Tours pivots to domestic collection

New local range of arts, classical music, gourmet and garden-focused tours

Australian operator of global special interest and cultural journeys, Renaissance Tours has unveiled a new collection of itineraries to cater for the expected domestic tourism boom stemming from the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent international travel ban.

Renaissance Tours Managing Director Evan Petrelis says sometimes the finest travel experiences are found on one’s own doorstep, or only a short drive from home.

“Living in a part of the world as diverse as Australia, we can surely claim that there is ‘a world in one country’ within easy reach.”

“Often the unexpected forces us to rediscover the things we may have taken for granted about our country: our world-class art galleries and museums; superb musicians and concert venues; gardens and landscapes of outstanding beauty; and some of the finest gourmet produce and wines you’ll find anywhere in the world.”

Petrelis said that over the past few months the Renaissance Team have been developing the company’s largest collection yet of cultural and special interest tours within Australia, “So that after these long months of home isolation, our clients can now easily get away for a short, affordable and enriching travel experience in the company of like-minded others.”

The line-up includes new options in the fields of Art, Music & Ballet, Gardening, Gourmet and Day Tours. Some of the trips are part of the World Art Tours program organised by the Art Gallery Society of NSW, operated in partnership with Renaissance Tours.

The majority of the multi-day trips are three to six/seven days in duration, whereas the Garden Tours range up to 11 days. Options include:

Expert-led day tours available for Renaissance Tours’ Sydney-based clients include a visit to the historic Quarantine Station, a culinary experience in Surry Hills and a garden hopping between historic houses around Sydney’s East.
