Palace Tours proud to announce: TREN CRUCERO voted South America's Leading Luxury Train at the 2014 South America World Travel Awards


PRINCETON, New Jersey - The World Travel Awards are seen as the “Oscars” of the travel industry- a true testament to the success of a tourism product or destination- and this year Ecuador truly stole the show at the South American ceremony, held in Quito on August 9th. Leaving with seven awards the country is proving to the world what a travel powerhouse it can be!

 

Among the awards were: South America's Leading Destination (Quito), South America's Leading Luxury Train (TREN CRUCERO), South America's Leading Airport (Mariscal Sucre- Quito), South America's Leading Green Destination, South America's Leading Tourist Board, South America's Leading Green (Finch Bay Eco Hotel), and South America's Leading Conference Hotel (SwissĂ´tel Quito).

 

Palace Tours, a leading luxury train operator in the US and the official representative of Tren Crucero in the USA and Canada, is very excited and not surprised about the Tren Crucero victory as South America’s Leading Luxury Train! The reason that Palace Tours gained involvement with Tren Ecuador and the Tren Crucero product, was that they saw the real value of this train to the people of Ecuador, and how it paid homage to their history and the unique culture of the country, which is something that any company or traveler would be lucky to be a part of.

 

Tren Crucero is an enchanting journey that takes guests on an unforgettable voyage through Ecuadorian heritage, culture, and scenery as they travel along the historic railway connecting Quito, high in the Andes, with Ecuador’s lush coastal plain near Guayaquil. This four day - three night expedition is undertaken in a refurbished heritage train pulled, wherever possible, by a magnificent 100-year old steam engine. The train travels to some of Ecuador’s best kept secret destinations and guests will enjoy diverse excursions daily throughout the trip. Up to 54 passengers are accommodated in two luxurious carriages accompanied by a cafĂ© lounge and an observation car with a unique open air viewing platform.

 

Guests in the United States and Canada may call Palace Tours at 888-LUX RAIL or visit http://www.palacetours.com for more information about the train and to make reservations.
