We offer a selection of tours that are different from the larger tour operators. Many are in mini-coaches with 2 - 14 fellow travelers. Our full-size coach tours often offer 4 or 6 nights "Stay-Awhile" at your chosen destination with day tours out to the surrounding countryside. However, new this year, we are also offering Grand British and Grand Europe tours as well as across Europe to Italy, Poland etc. The "difference"" with these may well be the price!

2017 will be our 18th year of offering a series of tours, and ideas for independent travel, throughout Britain, Ireland and continental Europe.

We really do try to offer a selection of tours that are different from the larger tour operators. We either design the tours ourselves, such as the "Downton Abbey" tours, or partner with some excellent, hand-picked operators in the U.K. and Europe. These include Sisley Garden Tours, Cambria Tours in Wales, Rabbies in Scotland & England and Abbey Tours in Ireland. We are particularly proud to be Canadian agents for the eclectic Back Roads Touring Co. of England and you can view all their 50 + itineraries by clicking here, or request a brochure.

We are again offering Royal Residences and Historic Palaces coupled with a visit to Highclere Castle, the TV home of “Downton Abbey” fame. You will also find more B ’n B tours, which are proving very popular, as well as regular tours around England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Wales is again a highlight with a very special week built around the world-famous Llangollen International Music Festival in July. London, of course, is strongly featured with everything you need from hotel packages to plenty of suggested day tours and sightseeing. Brexit, the UK voting to leave the European Union, has resulted in a drop in the value of the British Pound, meaning that virtually all prices to the UK are lower than last year! Check it out!

During 2017 we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. It is also the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the 75th of the ill-fated Dieppe Raid. We have 3 tours going to Vimy in April (request separate brochure) and 1 to Dieppe in August.

London, Paris and all the great cities of Europe are waiting and our experienced travel counsellors are here to help you plan the holiday of your dreams. Bon Voyage!
