For 19 years DHTour has been specializing in sending clients to Britain and Europe as well as customized groups around the world. We are proud to be Canadian agents for the unique and eclectic Back Roads Touring Company. Some of their tours will still be packaged with add-on nights etc. in our regular program but now you can browse all the Back Roads itineraries right here plus we have a separate brochure we will send you on request.


This will be our 19th year of offering a series of tours, plus ideas for independent travel, throughout Britain, Ireland and continental Europe. “Beautiful Britain & Europe”, 2018 is our sister brochure to Back Roads Touring, 2018, and you can find a summary of all 49 of the Back Roads tours, covering the U.K. and most of continental Europe, by clicking here.

November 11th, 2018, will be the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 – “The War to end all Wars” – and we are offering the opportunity to be either in London or Ypres for the commemorative ceremonies. Both tours will also trace Canadian battlefields in both WW1 and WW2.

In addition, in July, we have a wonderful tour of Italy. While the focus of this trip is to explore the unique battlefields of Italy, covering the areas Canadian troops fought for 75 years ago, there is an authentic and entirely Italian component to this tour. In addition to viewing the beautiful countryside, you will experience some delicious meals prepared in equally incredible places, and witness the true culture of Italy in a way you have never dreamt possible.

As usual, we offer all you need for travelling into and around London, as well as the other great cities of the British Isles and continental Europe. Our B ‘n B and regular tours around England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland continue to sell well and early booking is recommended.

For younger clients we now are pleased to offer Topdeck tours of Europe and the world. Topdeck is a sister company of Back Roads Touring specialising in travel for the 18 – 39s.

Where are your travel plans taking you in 2018? Our experienced travel counsellors are here to help you plan the holiday of your dreams.

Bon Voyage!

British Airways remains our preferred airline to the U.K. but Air Canada, Air Transat & West Jet all have flights from various Canadian cities direct to London's Heathrow or Gatwick airports. Air Canada and Air Transat also have direct flights to Paris and other European cities (tip: if you are thinking of visiting London and Paris, fly into one and out of the other). Other international airlines also have direct flights to their own countries.

On some of our tours we book group rates on BA or AC and we will always offer their current seat sales, if available, when you book.

Thank you so much for putting together such a great tour. The Tavistock Hotel was perfectly situated, clean and everyone was very helpful and friendly. Bloomsbury is a safe and pleasant area in which to stay. Rooms were warm; the shower worked well and breakfast was more than adequate. The travel card was a great bonus. The selection of restaurants was excellent. The extra tour to Stonehenge, Bath and Salisbury was interesting and easy to do. We really enjoyed our time in London and hope to make it an annual trip! You can never see enough of London.

Just a note to let you know how pleased we were with our DH Tour to London. The service on B.A. was excellent. The Tavistock Hotel was very satisfactory, centrally located and the London transportation passes were very useful, as was the information you sent us beforehand. Best of all was the service of our guide Gail. She was most informative and helpful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.
