Closure of Pacific Delight Tours

February 14, 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the sad news that Pacific Delight Tours, a pioneer in Asia tour operations, is out of business. The New York based tour operator announced recently that it decided to permanently suspend its operations due to the negative effect of media coverage on the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in China.

For four decades, Pacific Delight Tours had been a fixture in the North American travel industry focusing on the high end of the outbound market with China being its most important destination. Pacific Delight Tours as an industry leader won much respect from its peers including Laurus Travel because the company always took good care of its customers.

Pacific Delight Tours was a wholesaler whereas Laurus Travel sells direct to consumers. In that sense, we were not  competitors. At travel shows where both companies exhibited we’d make a point of dropping by their booth to show our respect. If we have anything in common, it’s the type of travelers we cater to. Like Pacific Delight Tours, Laurus Travel focuses on upper-middle-class consumers who are well informed and keenly interested in other cultures.
