Book your bucket list tour and
know everything is taken care of.

We’ve done the miles.

You can rest assured the team at VSL Travel have the experience and knowledge to make sure your pre or post tour is a real highlight of Golden Oldies Denver. After all, we’ve been preparing boutique tours for close to two decades – and we believe this expertise makes the world of difference.

We don't cut corners.

Over time we’ve grown an extensive network of travel partners – these are well-established, highly professional operators that we trust. Time and time again they’ve delivered a seamless tour experience, and they will do so again with Denver.

We bend over backwards.

Because we’re a smaller company, we can be a lot more flexible with the tours we prepare. Say you wanted to play an extra match or meet up with local rugby stalwarts, we’d simply get on the phone and make the arrangements. So even though we’ve put together sample itineraries, please come to us if you’d prefer something different!

One point of contact.

All your travel arrangements can be booked through the Golden Oldies office – which saves going backwards and forwards with an overseas tour operator or agent. Plus we can organise travel insurance and assist with any required documentation such as visas.
