Escorted Holidays

What is an Escorted Holiday?

Our small group escorted holidays are designed to offer a friendly, flexible and relaxed style of touring. Led by remarkable local guides, you will explore the depths of a destination’s culture and landscape in a completely different way. You’ll be sure to explore the vast array of the world’s natural wonders; from stunning mountain-clad fjords and sweeping open roads to curious Kiwi birds and elegant white tailed Eagles.  But with the expert knowledge of our guides you’ll find out about those hidden treasures; the best places to stay, the best places to eat and the best time to visit sights. What’s more, our guides know that no one traveller is the same and will make sure you get the most out of your trip. 

All off our escorted tour itineraries are designed to provide an example of what you can expect on a trip with us, but all of our tours can be tailored to meet your requirements. What you can be certain of, is our promise simple: all arrangements will be taken care of, so all you need to do is enjoy yourself, spend time with like-minded people and see what you’ve always dreamed off.
