Designers of Quality Holidays since 2000

Escorted Holidays  Our Escorted Holidays feature carefully planned itineraries and comfortable hotels (mainly 4-star rated), all of which have been inspected by senior staff. We often stay in unspoilt areas, sometimes a little ‘off the beaten track, and certainly away from mass-market holiday resorts.

Walking Holidays  Our Walking Holidays are based mainly in 4-star hotels in interesting, scenic areas. We include three walking excursions, which are led by experienced, locally-based walking guides. Some have the option of a fourth walk, too.
