On the Go launches - DESTINATION TINTIN

News ~ Wednesday 26th May 2010

Holidays in the footsteps of the world's favourite adventurer for the first time ever !

May 2010.../Exciting adventures exploring distant lands and far off cultures  -  Tintin fans for the first time ever are now able to follow in the footsteps of their favourite Belgian adventurer. On The Go has broken new ground by joining forces with Moulinsart, the official organisation that looks after the legacy of the famous comic creator Hergé and his most loved creation, The Adventures of Tintin, one if the most iconic European comic books of the 20th Century.

From the vibrant landscapes of Northern India and the enchanting Kingdom of Jordan to the ancient treasures of Egypt and the home of Hergé himself in Belgium, this new Tintin brochure offers tours in four of the most popular destinations featured within the Tintin comic series. The new brochure launches on 10 May 2010. Weekend trips to Brussels commence in July 2010 and the inaugural adventure to India is on 29 October 2010, with trips to Egypt and Jordan following soon after. Each Tintin tour carefully combines the comforts of modern travel with the excitement and adrenaline of an original Tintin trail. Expert local guides are on hand to ensure guests really get to know destinations inside out, whilst well-known 'Tintinologists' and members of the Moulinsart team personally accompany some expeditions to share their passion, experience and insights about Hergé and his inspirations. This ensures an authentic Tintin travel experience that even Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus would be proud of! On the Go has especially tailored the different Tintin holidays to suit both the avid adult Tintin fan and younger travellers. Clearly marked in the brochure, the adult holidays feature a strong cultural and historical bias and most are led by a Tintin expert. Offering entertaining adventures and exciting themed activities, the Tintin family holidays are designed to bring the spirit of Tintin alive for the whole family and are suitable for children aged between seven and twelve. Guests can also create their own personalised Tintin tour and travel as a private group, handpicking properties to suit their needs.

Jay Lakshman, MD of On the Go Tours says:

"I feel immensely privileged to have the opportunity to collaborate with Moulinsart on developing these holidays. As a young boy growing up in India, getting hold of a new Tintin album was a real treat and I chewed through the entire collection fairly soon! To now be able to present Tintin fans worldwide with authentic holiday experiences, following in the footsteps of my favourite adventurer, truly is a special moment. Fittingly, the inaugural adventure takes place in India, with trips to Jordan and Egypt following soon. With long weekend trips to Brussels too, there's plenty more to come in this exciting new chapter of Tintin  -  this is only the beginning !"

Dust off your binoculars and pack your leather case, with the launch of these thrilling new Tintin tours every comic book fan is bound for an adventure !
