Touch Down Travels has unveiled an Experience Center in Almiralty road in Lekki, Lagos for people who desire to travel the opportunity to experience different destinations before actually travelling there.

The Experience Center on the Ground Floor, D’Galleria Mall on Admiralty way Lekki offers an array of destinations to different individuals who are travelling or are thinking of travelling but do not know where to go either for honeymoon, kids vacation, leisure or for business to experience any destination, see it, feel it and enjoy it without actually being there.

The idea of the experience center is to stimulate in people the desire to travel and encourage them to travel to any destination of their choice and experience it first hand at the center.
