See Europe Differently With These Small Group Tours
21st April 2016

As you may know, we have recently started offering small group tours that allow you to be escorted around Europe in a unique way. Not only are they vastly different to other tours of this kind, they also take you to destinations that you may have never even considered. The combination of passionate guides with local knowledge and immersive experiences will enhance your trip and allow you to see an entirely different side of countries you thought you knew well.

Let’s take a closer look at some of our favourite examples.

Tuscan Treats

Tuscan Oil Olives and Bread

As you can probably tell by the title of this tour, there will be lots of tasty morsels to look forward to on this trip to Italy. Taking in the Tuscan towns of Lucca, Florence, Chianti, Pienza and Pisa, you will explore a variety of different local specialities, sending your taste buds on one of the best journeys they could imagine.

Whilst you will get to create your own local lunch, with a professional chef on hand to guide you, it won’t all be about food. The three days spent in a beautiful villa in Chianti will offer the perfect chance to sample some of the region’s much-loved red wines.

Croatia and The Dalmatian Coast

Waterfalls In The Krka National Park

Many people believe Croatia to be one of Europe’s most sparkling gems, with glorious beaches, fantastic history and delicious food at every turn. This tour will give you the chance to realise this for yourself as you explore popular cities such as Split and Dubrovnik, as well as the islands that lie off the Dalmatian coast.

Highlights include a look around Krka National Park. Here, you can admire the stunning waterfalls and even take a dip in the crystal clear lakes. Later on in your journey, there’s a chance to walk along the medieval city walls of UNESCO-listed Kotor.

Mountains, Valleys & Lakes of Switzerland

Jungfrau Mountains

Switzerland is a country that features outstanding natural beauty, something that you will be very aware of by the time you finish this fantastic tour. As well as major cities like Zurich and Bern, you will get to discover some of the smaller gems across the country, even setting foot in Liechtenstein to admire the Prince’s castle.

On your travels, you will experience Europe’s first mountain railway near Weggis, Europe’s highest railway station in the Jungfrau region, and even learn how traditional alphorns are made in Eggiwil. There will be plenty to keep you fuelled along the way, too. Local wines, traditional fondues and some of the most delicious chocolate in the world will ensure you are never too far away from the next tasty treat.

Germany’s Romantic Back-Road To Vienna

Horse and Cart in Rothenberg

The Romantic Road is a scenic highway in Germany that travels through some stunning scenery and charming medieval towns. On this trip, you will start in Frankfurt, before venturing on to Rothenberg, Heidelberg and Munich amongst others. When you finally arrive in Vienna, a private visit to the famous Spanish Riding School will allow you to end your tour on a high.

Immersive experiences include learning how to make beer with a master brewer, discovering the secrets behind a perfect apple strudel cake and exploring the musical city of Salzburg. As you travel along this route, dramatic castles can be spotted high on hilltops and Tyrolean scenery will glide effortlessly past your window.
