England & Wales once again prove to be as popular as ever with destinations ranging from the Lake District and Northumbria in the north to Kent and Cornwall in the south. We return to the seaside resorts with tours to Blackpool (weekends as well), Southport, Bournemouth and the English Rivera. We have new Bargain Breaks, visit the RHS Malvern Spring Festival and introduce a bit of "Fizz and Fayre"! As well as the old favourites you will find new destinations to Lincolnshire, Kent and Snowdonia.
Ireland continues to be your No 1 choice of destination and once again we have it covered. For 2017 you will find new gardening tours based in counties Galway and Offaly. We return to the newly re-opened Shandon Hotel in Donegal and expand your choice of accommodations in Co Mayo. The Ancient South East is explored from Kinsale and Waterford and Killaloe is our base beside the mighty River Shannon. Don't forget the Gleneagle Experience - a fabulous tour at a great price!
The 2017 European programme ranges from 6 to 13 days. We explore one of Italy's lesser known lakes at Molveno, take in the enchanting Hills of Tuscany and return to Lake Maggiore. With boats and trains in mind we cruise on the Rhine and travel on the awesome Bernina Express, one of Europe's great train journeys. Join us on our "voyage" through the Burgundian Netherlands, the Black Forest and the Austrian Tyrol. For Christmas we have an all new programme just for you!
In 2017 we return to the Orkney and Shetland with a 5 day mini-cruise. From Irvine in the west to Aberdeen in the east it's our "Coast to Coast". For the romantics in you there is Afternoon Tea on the Strathspey Steam Railway. For the rugby fan we visit Murrayfield for Ireland's Six Nations fixture against our host country. Looking for a bargain then Arrochar is the place to be - and it's included for Christmas!
