On an escorted tour you'll travel independently from your home city to join the group at the starting point of the tour. You will meet your guide and fellow travellers there and be accompanied by a guide for all or most of your land program. If you've booked on a designated Escorted Group Tour you will have a guide with you from the group departure point and return, as well being guided throughout the tour. Whether you're on an Escorted Tour or an Escorted Group Tour your tour guide will provide lots of information during the tour and peace of mind, so you don't have to think about all the little details of your travels.
Relax in comfort aboard your river cruise ship and watch the world go by! River cruising offers the opportunity to explore the picturesque cities, towns, villages and countryside along the river's edge and take guided tours by bus, on foot or by bicycle. Meals are of a very high standard and are served on the ship, along with a fine selection of local wines. The small number of cabins on river cruise ships allows for you to really get to know your fellow travellers.
There's just something so special about travelling by train. We don't know if it's the clickety-clack of the rails, watching the world pass by or the sense of nostalgia from train travel of days gone by - but we do know it's a great way to get from one place to another or enjoy an entire vacation on the train. Travel by rail on the ultimate Trans-Siberian Express from Russia across Siberia and Mongolia to China; the romantic Orient Express from London to Venice; through the rugged Canadian mountains on The Rocky Mountaineer; through Scotland's highlands and alongside her lochs on the Royal Scotsman; search for Northern Lights in Russia or explore Africa on Rovos Rail. We love trains!
