As the Chairman of The Travel Corporation (TTC), in my over 60 years of exploring, I have been fortunate to build an incredibly successful travel company, together with my family and a brilliant team of industry professionals.
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of our family’s legacy in travel. In 1920, my parents Evelyn and Solomon Tollman laid the foundation for what would become TTC by opening a small hotel in Paternoster, 150 km up the Atlantic coast from Cape Town, South Africa.
It was in that hotel that my family’s passion for service developed. My father treated every guest as though they were his only guest, welcoming each with the warmth and hospitality he had not found in his own travels. Working day and night, he built that hotel into a thriving business. In the process, he defined our family legacy: Driven by Service.
While much has changed over the past 100 years, this passionate focus has remained exactly the same, and is precisely the attitude that defines each company within The Travel Corporation today. Alongside my wife Beatrice and our children, we’ve expanded from that single hotel to a collection of 42 niche travel brands that welcome guests from all over the world.
Over the decades, our family’s passion for discovery and seeking out new experiences has combined with our drive to create superb quality, service and value in every travel business we have built.
As a family, we are “always in pursuit of excellence,” and our philosophy of always delivering the best has driven us to create some of the most luxurious, award-winning hospitality companies, from the world-renowned Red Carnation Hotels to Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection.
A few years ago, I decided to apply our tremendous experience in luxury hospitality to create a travel company that provides the very best, immersive luxury travel experiences with the perfect blend of guided and independent exploration – and so, Luxury Gold was born.
Luxury Gold is motivated by my personal love of travel and my collection of cherished moments that I wish to share with you, enabling you to enhance your travel senses and experiences, as you dream and discover the world with us.
Through my Chairman’s Collection of exclusive experiences, we’ve called upon our extensive connections to introduce you to the world’s legendary locals, including opportunities to mingle with European nobility and starry icons in the USA & Canada.
For example, on select departures of the Treasures of the Incas journey, you’ll meet the patriarch of one of Peru’s most prominent families, Dr. Francisco Diez-Canseco Távara, for a reception at his beautiful villa.
These are just a few examples of what Luxury Gold makes possible. Now, at my personal invitation, let’s explore the world together
