Escorted & Guided Tour Holidays

Uncover hidden gems with an expert tour guide

Whatever you’ve got in mind, we’ve got an escorted tour perfect for you. Savour the smoky flavours of authentic Deep South cooking in the United States of America. Gaze up at the extraordinary marble façade of India’s Taj Mahal. Or, inhale the heady scent of South Africa’s finest tipples in the Winelands. On an escorted tour, you’ll visit highlights and hidden gems in equal measure, and your tour can be anything from short-stop, to several weeks long with a beach holiday on the end.

For a cultural experience to remember, walk alongside the villagers in Vietnam’s neatly terraced paddy fields, then pick a path through Hanoi’s bustling Old Quarter. You’ll get an inside perspective on the city’s multi-faceted history, from the neo-gothic Saint Joseph Cathedral, to the classically Vietnamese Temple of the Jade Mountain on the serene waters of Hoan Kiem Lake.

Or, visit Peru, Brazil and Argentina in one expedition on a Highlights of South America tour. Our escorted tours can be designed entirely around your wishes. Whether you already know where you’re going, or you need a little help placing pins on the map, our Destination Specialists are on-hand to put together the perfect trip.
