QUITO, Ecuador- The World Travel Awards (WTA) are the most important tourism awards across the globe, referred to as the “Oscars” of the tourism industry. This year on August 9th the award ceremony was held in Ecuador at the incredible Centro Cultural Itchimbia in Quito, where Tren Crucero won first place and was named the “Best Luxury Train in South America.”
At the ceremony Ecuador showcased its best tourism products that are now recognized around the world, including Tren Crucero. This train allows passengers to enjoy special four-day, three-night routes surrounded by amazing and diverse landscapes that are not reached by other methods of transport in Ecuador.
Tren Crucero won by a huge majority vote, which was opened from April 14th to June 23rd of this year. The support of local Ecuadorians and international travelers helped Tren Crucero gain the victory of two international awards in only the first year of operation. The first award was won in November 2013, when it was named the “Best Touristic Product Outside Europe” at the British Guild of Travel Writers Awards, and now the “Best Luxury Train in South America” at the World Travel Awards, which will put it in the running to win best in the world at the World Travel Awards Grand Finale in November of this year.
