LONDON, April 27, 2011 - Voyages Jules Verne, the specialist tour operator, has launched the
latest edition of its popular Classic Resorts & Weekends brochure.

The brochure features a choice of 32 itineraries across Europe, North
and the Middle East, and clients can choose from classic city breaks
and cultural forays or simply book a relaxing resort stay with the option to
add on some sightseeing trips once they get there.

The new brochure, which covers departures from April 2011 to April 2012,
encompasses perennial Voyages Jules Verne favourites - such as Venice from
the Water, Bargain in Marrakech and A Taste of South Africa, as well as more
recent additions that include Tallinn Tales, and Arts & Delights in Vienna.

There are four new holidays which have been added to the Classic Resorts
& Weekend brochure for 2011, including Bombay Mix, a five-night trip to India
which features a full-day sightseeing tour of the city as well as time for
independent exploration. Going Going Tirol allows clients to stay in the
Tirolean village of Going for seven nights including a journey on Europe's
oldest steam-driven railway the Achenseebahn and a cruise on Lake Achensee.

The new additions also include An Icelandic Summer, where clients are
based in Reykjavik and Heritage of Malta, which has a four night stay in one
of Malta's historic hotels.

Also new to the Classic Resorts & Weekends brochure this year are details
about the walking content of itineraries. Shown alongside other useful tour
information in the 'Key VJV Features' section on each page, each tour is
graded from 1 (relaxed walking) to 4 (strenuous - for seasoned walkers),
based on an overall assessment of the terrain and activities covered.

Solo travellers selecting their next trip from the new Classic Resorts &
Weekends brochure need not fear financial penalty, with more than half of the
itineraries available with no single supplement. Options range from Cyprus -
The Southern Tour, A Slice of Madeira, Grand Hotels on Lake Como and an
Italian itinerary that includes a journey on the Venice
Simplon-Orient-Express, as well as the brand-new Heritage of Malta and Going
Going Tirol tours. No Single Traveller ( supplement places apply on
certain departure dates only and are subject to availability.
