Myths and Mountains Plans Prestigious Global Itinerary
Chosen by Town & Country Magazine
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Award-winning experiential tour operator Myths and Mountains has been chosen as one of sixteen esteemed and highly recommended tour operators to plan a spectacular Around the World Itinerary to celebrate the 170th Anniversary of Town & Country Magazine.
Town & Country Magazine, the oldest continually published magazine in the country, has been a trusted source of privileged information, taste, elegant living, and unpretentious fun since 1846. To celebrate their anniversary, they turned to the world’s top travel specialists to plan its T&C – The New Grand Tour – Around the World in 170 Days!
Myths and Mountains Founder Toni Neubauer crafted Days 84-113 of this unique itinerary. She included extraordinary, one-of-a-kind experiences that would be the envy of any jetsetter. In India, she recommends living the life of a Raj at New Delhi’s Imperial Hotel, visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra and participating in the aarti ceremony in Varanasi. Trek to Bhutan’s Tiger’s Nest monastery in the footsteps of the British Royals; take a first-class cruise the Mekong River in Viet Nam and tour the iconic ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia with a Khmer scholar as well as a cultural visit to Chao Phraya, Thailand.
Town and Country also enlisted the expertise of Allie Almario, Myths and Mountains vice president and South American specialist to plan the leg to Ecuador and the Galapagos. She recommends starting the trip in Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest city and the easiest gateway to the Galapagos Islands – one of the world’s most incredible wildlife destinations. Days of snorkeling, hiking, birding and exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site are a must, as well as a stay in an exclusive private tented camp where wild tortoises roam.
“The privilege of sharing our expertise and years of experience in these two diverse and fascinating regions of the world was truly a pleasure,” says Myths and Mountains Founder Toni Neubauer. “We offer upscale private, customized adventure and cultural itineraries to nearly 20 countries to travelers each day.”
