Combine culture and cuisine; participate in a tea ceremony with a geisha/geiko, a hands-on activity such as taiko drumming and the making of soba noodles - and that's just Japan!
Escorted touring holidays are becoming increasingly popular as travellers look for new experiences and greater authenticity. We work with a range of escorted touring and adventure holiday companies offering all manner of exciting trips, from cycling around vineyards in France to real food adventures in Italy, historical tours of Greece, wildlife watching and Antarctic expeditions. We can also offer small group tours in the UK travelling by train or mini-coach.
On an escorted tour you'll be travelling with a knowledgeable tour leader and likeminded people. Your tour leader will look after all the practical arrangements, so you won't need to worry about missing connections, locating your hotel or finding the best restaurants. A local expert guide may join you for the day to show you around their city or take you on an excursion.
