Escorted Touring

is the perfect way to experience a country or region, making the most of your time and introducing you to like-minded travellers.

I spent many years working for adventure tour operators, designing and operating escorted tours across the world. 

This experience gives me a unique insight and first hand knowledge of escorted touring.

There are so many tours to choose from, so how do you work out which one is right for you?

Some operators specialise in a country or continent, others have a reputation for excelling with a type of activity. 


Let me guide and help you find the perfect tour.

I know who to book with if you want, for example, an art & museum tour of Russia, or a trek to Nepal.

I focus on your chosen interests, whether that is good food and wine, art and culture, walking and trekking or cycling.

Do you want to stay with local people, in budget 3*’s or 5* boutique hotels?

Is a tour with group evening meals a priority, or do you prefer the flexibility to choose your own restaurant?

What about group size?

I have the answers to the questions you have not even thought about!

So pick up the phone and let me help you to decide and book the type of tour to suit you.
