Allura Blue was launched to fill a gap in the market for luxury tours tailored to those who want to immerse themselves in the destinations they visit fully; people who want to participate in authentic and local experiences.
Many trips are being offered in the luxury travel market that tend to focus on the typical, popular tourist attractions. While many of these places are important to include, these tours miss the culture, hidden gems, and authentic local experiences waiting to be discovered.
Guests on Allura Blue tours can experience the highlights of each destination, which they would enjoy with most luxury tours. What makes Allura Blue tours stand out is that they additionally share insider and local highlights; the most beautiful roads, the chance to dine in countryside family restaurants, the chance to experience workshops and farms of artisans and producers, and so much more.
