“Our Family Experiences have become hugely popular with families looking for a well-organized, hassle-free vacation, so we’re pleased to be offering four exciting new itineraries to our guests,” said Paul Wiseman, president of Trafalgar USA. “Booking these trips for families is also an excellent opportunity for agents to benefit from the great commissions that come with group travel.”
