ITC Classics has announced it has been voted Best Tour Operator at the 14th Annual Conde Nast Traveller Readers Awards.

Jennifer Atkinson, CEO of ITC Classics, was presented with the award by Welsh comedian and traveller Griff Rhys Jones.

She said: “At the beginning of 2011, we had the best trading period in more than five years.

“This is due to the team’s passion and dedication to providing clients with the highest standards of customer service. We aim to give our customers and the readers of Conde Nast Traveller the best service possible.”

ITC Classics has been synonymous with luxury travel for 30 years.

Jennifer leads a young, dynamic management team and aims to show that even in the age of the internet, a specialist travel operator can offer the best personal service in the world.

The Conde Nast Traveller Readers Awards were established 14 years ago to recognise its readers’ opinions on everything to do with travel.
