One of Australia’s fastest evolving tour operators, Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours, has joined the Virtuoso luxury travel network as a Preferred Partner, bringing their expertise in this bespoke area of touring to agents across the Asia Pacific.Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours is Australia’s leading operator of tours to Australian war sites of significance and each year hosts more than 40 tours lead by expert historians with in depth knowledge of their destination.
“We offer a niche product which is growing in popularity in Australia with more and more people looking to find out about their own family’s experience of war service,” Mat McLachlan, Founder and Chief Historian of Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours, said.
“Many Australian’s want to have an extra layer to their holiday experience and finding these connections gives them a purpose for being there. It’s a bit of a pilgrimage for many of our clients and there is something very special about walking the ground where our parents or grandparents might have been.
“While our products are highly experiential, steeped in the history of the war experience, we also ensure our clients become immersed in the travel experience, learning about local culture and food with activities such as champagne tasting, breakfast with local villagers and we even organise a boat landing at Gallipoli for ANZAC Day.”
Virtuoso Asia Pacific Managing Director, Michael Londregan said Virtuoso agents would now have high quality, tailored travel experiences available for their clients in this growing niche market.
“This Partnership puts Virtuoso agents in direct contact with the right knowledge and experience to deliver a fantastic holiday for their clients who are looking to explore war history and their own personal story,” Mr Londregan said.
“Virtuoso agents have an amazing understanding of the luxury travel market and they will now be able to augment this with an ability to deliver the unique and exciting travel experience offered by Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours.”
