Regent unveils 2023 small group tour brochure

Regent Seven Seas Cruises has unveiled a 2023 small group tours brochure, featuring 32 departures to 28 destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Each tour is designed for a maximum of 16 people, and gives them a chance to “step off the beaten track and explore some hidden gems”, the line said.

New tours for 2023 include Svalbard, Albania, Slovenia, the Baltic states and Saudi Arabia.

The five-day September on Svalbard tour includes beer tasting from the most northerly brewery in the world, guided hiking in the Arctic tundra, a summer husky sled ride, a boat safari and dinner in the wilderness.

The lead-in price for the itinerary is £2,195.

Although Regent has been selling Albania holidays for 50 years, the line has created a new 14-day small group tour for 2023 departing in September which costs from £3,000.

Regent said guests can expect history from Greek, Roman and Ottoman ruins to Cold War bunkers, Unesco World Heritage sites, culture, food and secluded beaches.

Two new 2023 tours will take guests to the Baltic states.

Departing in June and September, the six-day Explore Latvia and Lithuania tour will take guests to Vilnius and Riga via Lake Plateliai. The trip costs from £1,595.

Guests on the seven-day Latvia and Estonia tour will visit fortresses, ancient merchant towns and stay on Saaremaa Island. The lead-in price is £1,750.

The two Baltic states tours can be booked separately or combined.

Two new Saudi Arabia tours have been added to the line’s 2023 programme, one in March and one in November.

The 12-day tours both begin in Riyadh and feature visits to Unesco sites at Jubbah and Hegra, AlUla and Medina. The spring tour includes a 4×4 desert experience at Wadi Disah and travelling around the mountains, while the autumn itinerary includes visits to markets and time around the coastal city of Yanbu.

The March tour costs from £6,470 and the November tour starts at £5,790.

Andrea Godfrey, brand manager and destination specialist for Regent, said: “The new small group tours brochure is one of our most varied yet, with 32 departures to 28 destinations.

“After the restrictions of the last few years, we are excited to be able to offer some really in-depth adventures, from getting under the skin of the tiny Baltic states to being among the first to experience tourism in Saudi Arabia.

“Accompanied by dedicated local experts, clients will be able to discover food and drink in Finland, the culture and landscapes of the Silk Road, and the incredible natural wonders of Borneo. There’s something for everyone.”
