Group Tour: Why go on tour? What are the benefits?

Your tour proposal will be specially prepared for you after we have spoken to you in detail about your requirements and thought carefully about the best and most suitable places for you to visit.

It’s important that your tour organiser remembers that it is not their tour but your tour and your input is of great importance.
