LAS VEGAS (April 2019) – Lip Smacking Foodie Tours, the award-winning, premier culinary walking tour in Las Vegas, announces it has been selected as a Preferred Partner member by Virtuoso. Preferred Partner status with Virtuoso, the invitation-only member network catering to luxury travel advisors, provides the company exclusivity within the network, meaning no similar experiences are able to become members.
As the world’s most dynamic tourism destination, Las Vegas is famous for introducing compelling new innovations within the competitive hospitality space. Lip Smacking Foodie Tours is the first company to create a commissionable dining experience, allowing travel agents to earn commissions with every tour booked. “Of course, every great travel advisor provides their client with memorable experiences—ours just happens to be commissionable,” said Donald Contursi, CIS, founder and president, Lip Smacking Foodie Tours. “With most travelers unaware they can experience four award-winning restaurants in one night, it’s a win for the customer and the travel agent.”
Each of the company’s tours offers guests personalized service and VIP access to the best tables in the house at the city’s most acclaimed restaurants. Every tour visits three to four restaurants and expert guides entertain guests with insider knowledge about the sights along the way. Guests indulge in 10-to-12 signature dishes over the course of each tour, as well as receive a warm welcome from the chefs.
Virtuoso is the leading international travel agency network specializing in luxury and experiential travel. This by-invitation-only organization comprises over 1,000 travel agency partners with more than 20,000 elite travel advisors in 50 countries throughout North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Virtuoso’s strongest market is the United States/ Canada with 70% of the agency locations. Drawing upon its preferred relationships with 1,700 of the world’s best hotels and resorts, cruise lines, airlines, tour companies and premier destinations, the network provides its upscale clientele with exclusive amenities, rare experiences and privileged access. More than $26.4 billion in annual travel sales makes Virtuoso a powerhouse in the luxury travel industry. In addition to the award-winning Virtuoso Life magazine, Virtuoso creates world-class marketing platforms that provide tourism boards with options to access its network of travel advisors and reach its highly desirable database of affluent frequent luxury travelers.
