Quality Standards

Planned into Every Tour ...


Selected for quality, style, character, convenience, professionalism and cultural flavour!


Carefully selected quality hotels offering the best facilities in each location, 4* throughout, tried and tested to suit your tour enjoyment.

Our Campaign Tours may use a number of hotels along the route, adding to the variety of your experience and, critically, minimising the need for extended travel times each day.

Whilst we believe we've chosen the best, our Bespoke Tailor-Made Tours open up other choices, from characterful 5* to premium budget selections.

      OUR TOURS      

*Hotel styles and facilities can vary by country and location. Check the Tour Itinerary for details.


Our renowned guides are at the very top of their game, and with you throughout the tour. Each is deeply respected for their knowledge, their ability to communicate, enthuse and to challenge accepted history. Cultural and culinary appreciation comes naturally!

Every tour is led or accompanied by at least one Tour Director of Campaigns & Culture to ensure our consistently high standards.

      OUR GUIDES      

*Check the Tour Itinerary to see which guides are leading your tour.


We've done our research, walked the terrain, checked the attractions and planned unique experiences. Our all-inclusive itineraries offer unmatched content and quality.

We book premium transport with professional drivers to optimise your comfort throughout the day.

Many tours offer extra accommodation nights to extend your stay, or additional day-tours to places of cultural or campaign interest nearby.

What we Include

We give you the freedom of how and when you get to our start point, using the most convenient trains or flights, giving you full flexibility in your arrangements, and the ability to arrive early or stay on for a few days after the tour before heading home. We can help and advise as you wish, but these elements are not included in your tour price.

What we do include is virtually everything else. We cover the cost of your hotel rooms (always minimum 4*), your transport in premium vehicles, all your meals with wine or beer, museum entry passes, tasting sessions, visits and treats and the expertise of two guides throughout.

You will simply be responsible for any extra drinks you order and non-itinerary purchases you make.
