ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In celebration of Valentine's Day, Trafalgar is offering a fun, interactive competition for a chic retreat for two on an eight-night romantic Wonderful France trip in the city of love. Couples will have fun entering the contest based on a true story of a couple looking for family roots in France while traveling on a Trafalgar vacation.
Entering is simple and a fun activity for couples to do together. Visit www.trafalgar.com/competition and watch a short film that tells the story of a real couple who took a Trafalgar vacation to France and are in the midst of looking for their family roots. Thanks to the local expertise of their Trafalgar travel director, they find themselves standing in the footsteps of their ancestry. Entrants then explore Paris by using the interactive panoramic image and must guess the location of the special staircase that's featured in the video and simply place an interactive pin on the map to mark this hidden treasure.
"Unlike any other company, Trafalgar shares our intimate knowledge of a destination with our guests so they personally experience true local treasures, just like the couple in our film, in addition to VIP entry to major attractions," said Paul Wiseman, president of Trafalgar USA. "Vacationing with us means you have a personal travel director, your ideal friend with a passion to help you discover more than what the average traveler would ever find on their own. Every detail is taken care of -- from luxury coach transportation, to hand-picked four-star accommodations, and all baggage, hotel, and restaurant gratuities."
Sightseeing highlights on the Wonderful France trip include:
- The most famous Parisian landmarks - Eiffel Tower, Champs Élysées, Palace of Versailles
- St. Tropez and Monaco, the playground of the rich and famous
- Miles of sparking and pristine Cote d'Azur coastline
- Trafalgar unique insider experiences including a Be My Guest dinner in rustic Provence cooked in a wood-fired oven in a family-run restaurant
- World-renowned vineyards of Côte du Rhône and Burgundy wine regions
The competition runs until February 26, 2015, the same date as Trafalgar's Early Payment Discount deadline where travelers ready to book now can save up to $1,200/couple^ on trips to Europe.
