Scenic Tours wins Telegraph Travel Award for second year running

Winning the best escorted tour operator category, we beat a number of leading operators to the title and were noted for our excellent customer service, high standard of accommodation and our planned itineraries.

Our New Zealand and Australia tours were particularly praised for their “immaculately-planned itineraries”, but the North and South America escorted tours that are also carefully planned by were credited as well.

Readers rate Scenic Tours highly

tailored river cruises and, in fact, we have also been named a runner-up in this year’s award for the world’s best river cruise line, but this latest award for touring has also recognised our excellence in delivering fully-inclusive long-haul tours.

The awards, which were held at Banking Hall in central London, also recognised the best cities and countries for people to visit; Cape Town in South Africa was voted the best city, while New Zealand won the award for best country.

Gaining recognition at The 2014 Telegraph Travel Awards is extra special, as this year almost 90,000 people voted for their favourite travel companies and destinations, which officially makes the awards the most wide-ranging and reliable reader travel survey in the world.
