Georgia Chamber of Commerce

Atlanta, Georgia

Trip: Experience Africa With the Georgia Chamber

Tour Operator: Central Holidays West

Date: June 2017

For 12 days, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce discovered South Africa’s natural beauty and cultural riches, including Johannesburg, Cape Town and Table Mountain.

“Out of the many places we’ve explored through our international travel program, South Africa has by far been the most memorable destination. One of the coolest things our guests experienced was the safari through Kruger National Park. We’re talking up-close encounters with some of the world’s wildest and most exotic animals. Another part of the trip that our guests couldn’t stop talking about was Victoria Falls.”

Trip: Manhattan and Salina Area Chambers of Commerce Present the Best of Italy

Tour Operator: Chamber Explorations

Date: March/April 2017

The Manhattan and Salina Area Chambers of Commerce teamed up to explore Italy in Florence, Rome, Venice and Assisi.

“Whether it was the hilltop town of Assisi or the larger cities of Florence and Rome, we loved the building, architecture, history, artwork and beauty of Italy. I think most on our tour group found taking a real gondola ride through Venice as a top highlight. In Rome, seeing firsthand the incredible works by Michelangelo at the Sistine Chapel was spectacular. An unscheduled stop on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful city of Florence at dusk was absolutely breathtaking.”

— Lyle Butler, President and CEO
