The UK's leading tour operator and specialist to The Gambia launches its new November 2009 - October 2010 brochure this week offering more winter sun holiday options and convenient Friday flight departures from Bristol International Airport.
The Gambia Experience highlights its 'luxury', 'excellent quality' and 'great value' hotel collections; an 'Out and About' section featuring a number of fun and interesting wildlife and cultural tours for adults and children alike, plus new cookery courses in traditional Gambian cuisine. With 22 years experience under its belt and the largest provider of holidays and flights to the destination, The Gambia Experience continues to offer great value outside the "Euro-zone" and to mark the launch is offering further savings on its winter holidays booked before 17th July.
Shaun Browne, Head of Aviation at Bristol International Airport, said:
"For those looking for guaranteed winter sun, The Gambia is a great option. The Gambia Experience has been serving the South West market from Bristol since 2001, enhancing the holidays it offers every year. We're delighted with the Friday flight departure, which is so convenient for customers."
