Touring

TRIED. TRAVELLED. TRUSTED.

Some destinations are made for exploring. Getting out and about to soak up the sights, delve into the culture and appreciate all the experiences on offer. Taking a tour is so much more than just getting from A to B, it’s the best way to truly see more.

Touring holidays come in many forms and there’s sure to be a style to suit you, from escorted touring, small group tours or activity tours such as hiking or cycling. With a pre-planned itinerary, you can simply sit back and enjoy the ride.

'Hemingway’s Cuba’ sounds so romantic and it really does live up to its reputation: Old Havana is packed with seemingly derelict buildings actually teeming with boisterous life; you can roll and even smoke your own cigar in the tobacco fields of Vinales and learn to dance the salsa in the front room of a local’s house in Old Trinidad, I loved it!'
