Information about the tours
Each tour has its own separate itinerary laying out clearly where you are staying with address and telephone number and where you are having breakfast, lunch and dinner. What you will be visiting and the fitness level required together with details of the tour guide and for some tour’s, the tour leader. Where you should meet at the beginning and end of the tour with timings. Lastly the cost of the tour and what is included and what is not.
Accommodation, Food and Drink
We go to great lengths to ensure that the hotel is in keeping with the tour’s character whilst providing a high quality and comfortable stay. Therefore the majority of the hotels are four-star or above.
Napoleon once remarked that an army marches on its stomach and we agree!
Breakfast is served in your hotel each morning, lunches are light at a restaurant or picnic lunches at a scenic location. The evening meals is where tired limbs recover and discussion about the day’s itinerary are discussed so it is important that the setting and meal is of the highest standard. Therefore, we handpick the restaurants for their food and location. We do ask if you have any dietary requirements to let us know so we can plan the dinner accordingly. We tend not to include the cost of alcohol in our tours as it is up to the individual to determine the price and the amount.
Tour size and transportation
The average tour size is between 10 to 15 people, which is perfect for the group to gel and get the most out of the guide. However, we have done specific group tours for 30 people as well as small family tours. We use modern, air-conditioned coaches which are in the main fitted with a WC together with a professional driver.
