Really get to explore a range of destinations with like-minded travellers with our touring holidays, discovering histories, cultures, and more with sightseeing tours and immersive experiences all designed to create memorable and enriching holidays

Why go on a touring holiday?

The short answer: Why not?

There's a wide spectrum of touring holidays available nowadays, from your traditional escorted coach tours to small group tours offering more intimate experiences. You don't even need to join a group as private tours are available - and can be tailor-made to suit you, from hotels to ensuring you tick off seeing everything you could possibly want to see! Family tours ensure that there's something for all the family to enjoy together, creating precious memories you'll share for years, while solo travellers can feel more confident joining other like-minded travellers, either on tours exclusively designed for solo travellers or on exclusive departures, or even joining a mix of other travellers with low or no single supplements on offer.

Tours nowadays offer incredible and unique immersive experiences - you're no longer simply sight-seeing, you're sight-doing! From rolling chapatis with local women in one of Delhi's most important Sikh Gurdwaras, sleeping under the stars of the Wadi Rum and enjoying dinner and stories round a camp fire with local Bedouins, to cookery classes and wine tasting, touring is a lot more hands-on than just snapping away photographs (although there's plenty of opportunities to do that too!). Very often, a lot of the experiences you'll enjoy on a tour wouldn't be possible to arrange independently!

Tours also make travelling easier - your transfers are arranged for you, but it's more than that. You'll be able to 'skip the queue' at major monuments and attractions, and may even enjoy exclusive access!
