Sky Vacations launches Bridgerton Tour
New York, April 26, 2021: Sky Vacations, a member of the Sky Bird Group, announced today a new tour “Reel Life to Real Life: Bridgerton” focused around the hit Netflix series “Bridgerton” with an optional “Downtown Abbey” extension.

A few years back we couldn’t keep up with demand for our “Downtown Abbey” tour and we expect the same demand for our new “Bridgerton” product. And with the winter release of the “Downton Abbey” sequel, these locations will be more popular than ever.”
