Asia Transpacific Journeys Wins Travel + Leisure Award

Only Asia Tour Specialist to Make the Top 25

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2011) - Asia Transpacific Journeys, a Boulder-based travel company, has been named one of the World's Top 10 Tour Operators by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine. The company, which specializes in custom tours and small group trips, is the only Asia tour operator to make the prestigious list.

The honor is particularly gratifying for being democratic in nature, says Marilyn Downing Staff, founder and president of Asia Transpacific Journeys, as winners are not picked by an editor, but rather determined by travelers who have actually booked with the company, then taken the time to go to the Travel + Leisure web site to vote in the poll.

"Our sincere thanks go out to our travelers. It is their passion for discovery, insight and excellence that continually inspires us to go beyond the ordinary," she says.

Over the last two decades, the Travel + Leisure readers' poll has become the benchmark by which all things travel-related are judged. The magazine asks readers, who are avid travelers from all walks of life, to rate destinations, hotels, restaurants and tour operators of every imaginable specialization.

"To achieve a Top 25 overall ranking in any category reflects years of hard work and an unsurpassed commitment to excellence. To make the Top 10 is of course even better. To be the only Asia travel specialist is extremely gratifying," says Downing Staff.
