Our touring simply explained

Celebrating 25 Years of tour excellence

To help you decide which is the right tour for you, we have developed an easy grading system for every one of our tours. It is easy to see which of our tours are Fully Inclusive and which are Flexible, it is clearly indicated, and we also let you know the fitness level required – there are Comfortable, Moderate and Active gradings.

Tour Grades & Physical Ratings

  • Physical Rating -Level 1

    Physical Rating -Level 1

    A reasonable level of fitness is required but it's more about spending time on your feet rather than covering large distances. You'll be getting on and off coaches and boats, walking around the sights and climbing some steps.

  • Physical Rating - Level 3

    Physical Rating - Level 3

    A good level of fitness is required as you need to be comfortable walking for 2-3 hours and covering longer distances. Other activities such as cycling will be at a gentle pace and will involve straightforward terrain.

  • Physical Rating - Level 5

    Physical Rating - Level 5

    You'll need to be fit and adventurous to participate in these tours as on some days you will be active for most of the day. The terrain may be more challenging and the activities more physically demanding.

  • Flexible Free Time
    Flexible Free Time

    Any group tour that is labelled Flexible has built in free time. This means the tour includes most meals but not all, and on some days the itinerary features optional activities that you can choose to include, giving you more freedom.

  • Includes a Cruise
    Includes a Cruise

    Any tour that includes a cruise, be it 4 hours on the Li in China or 10 days on the Irrawaddy in Burma will have a symbol to let you know. A cruise is one of the best ways to slow down the pace and truly soak up your surroundings.

Tour Styles

  • Classic

    See the classic sights in the company of expert guides so you can really understand the history and culture of the destination. On our classic tours we take care of everything, leaving you to sit back and enjoy the experience to the full. The tours are fully inclusive with all meals and a comprehensive touring programme.

  • Go Beyond

    Venture off the beaten track to explore fascinating destinations away from the tourist trail. You will discover the local culture in depth and see sights rarely witnessed by other travellers. These tours take you away from the comforts of home but will reward you with the experience of a lifetime.

  • Solo

    Designed exclusively for customers travelling solo, these solo dedicated departures provide a ready-made group of like-minded travellers to enjoy your holiday with. You will be looked after all the way by an expert guide who will involve you in the group activities discovering the sites and experiencing cultural activities. A room of your own is guaranteed with no supplement to pay.

  • Private

    A private tour follows a pre-defined itinerary but with the benefits of your own personal guide. Perfect for couples and families that want greater flexibility on when they travel and the style of accommodation. Most of our group tours can operate on a private basis.

  • Tailor-Made

    For the ultimate in bespoke touring, one of our expert consultants will help you in designing a tour to meet your exact requirements. Select your choice of destinations, accommodation, touring and experiences to create the perfect holiday for you.

Please note: not all tour styles are available for all destinations.
