Frank Marini, Collette Vacations' VP of sales, agrees, citing more interest in Spain and Portugal and, domestically, in the company's National Parks tours.
Obviously, if a tour operator focuses on a particular region, they will notice micro-trends in their clientele's choices.
For example, Ian Swain, founder of Swain Tours
, which specializes in travel to Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific islands, says that his
company is seeing "tremendous interest" in those destinations, especially in the new Luxury Lodges of Australia.
Beyond that, he
adds, Africa is booking well, as are Cambodia and Vietnam.
