American Express Travel announces a
collection of exclusive
itineraries designed to give travelers a true insider experience. Each trip
is created by expert travel agents and inspired by tastemakers in the culinary,
health & wellness, fashion & style and arts & culture categories. The
itineraries are part of "Insider Escapes presented by
American Express Travel," a new
original video series and editorial program in partnership with Yahoo! Travel
and produced by Yahoo! Studios, that provides consumers with insider
recommendations and tips via video interviews from their favorite influencers
including Deepak and Gotham Chopra, Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan, Tom
Colicchio and Lisa Ling. Beginning August 6, the program will launch with Deepak
and Gotham Chopra's itineraries, followed by two new "Insider Escapes"
itineraries each week for four consecutive weeks.
"Travelers want authentic experiences that reflect their personal interests and bring them to life in exciting ways," said David Patron, Vice President of American Express Travel. "Insider Escapes offers our customers a way to explore their favorite destinations through the eyes of the influential world travelers that inspire them."
Each itinerary offers travelers a one-of-a-kind experience, whether it's meditating at a 16th century temple in New Delhi or savoring the Southern flavors in the culinary markets of Charleston. A host of exciting adventures are available through "Insider Escapes," including:
- Health & Wellness – Deepak and Gotham Chopra's New Delhi and Sedona
- Fashion & Style – Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan's Tokyo and San Francisco
- Food & Wine – Tom Colicchio's Singapore and Charleston
- Arts & Culture – Lisa Ling's Santorini and Washington, DC
