Why Choose an Escorted Tour?

We’ve all heard the phrase but what does it actually mean in terms of a holiday? Quite simply, it’s a type of pre-arranged packaged tour, which involves travelling in a group with the assistance of a knowledgeable guide throughout. There are many different options too – big groups, small groups, for solos only and multigenerational tours are all available. Here’s a quick guide for those who are considering the possibilities.

An escorted tour is a hassle-free experience

When it comes to planning a holiday, choosing a trusted escorted tour company means that your entire trip is arranged for you. From the booking process through to touching down at your destination and beyond, the company is on call and always has a representative to assist you, whatever happens, with the added benefit of being someone who can give you valuable insights to local cultures and specialities.

An escorted tour is incredible value

With an escorted tour company, you tend to get a lot more for your money – taking you much further than if you had planned a holiday alone. Most operators include flights, hand-picked accommodation, many meals, transfers, excursions and experiences, as well as the guidance of a tour manager.

Escorted tours make multi-centre holidays easy

An escorted tour can provide the opportunity to experience the highlights of several destinations on a single trip – something difficult to achieve by yourself or for such excellent value.

Try a small group tour

If you’re hesitant about returning to travelling in big groups or amongst crowds, why not try a small group tour, no more than 24 people, which enables you to enjoy unique encounters and stay in accommodation not available to larger groups, as well as having a more intimate experience – maybe even making friends for life.

Help is always nearby with an escorted tour

Having an experienced tour manager on hand can be an attractive option if you’re travelling to a new destination, meaning help and assistance are always on standby. In addition, the safety and wellbeing of customers are a priority with most holiday operators, with clear and careful policies in place, as well as partnerships with trusted travel insurance providers.
