The clichés are true.
Croissants are tastier from boulangeries in French villages, Mediterranean sunsets look like impressionist paintings, and the Roman Empire’s influences are found in every corner of the continent.
But when you travel in Europe, you also discover things you never imagined.
You experience Italian mountains adorned with pagan myths; ancient Spanish cities dangling off the sides of cliffs; and ratatouilles that redefine the simple vegetable dish.
On our tours, we focus on the unexpected joys of Europe instead of the stereotypes. We do this to avoid the crowds and let you enjoy the true soul of the continent.
You travel on mini-coaches with an expert driver and guide, stay in hand-picked accommodation, choose the attractions you pay for, support local communities, and go beyond the guidebooks.

From fondling fruit at a Florentine market stall to tasting ten tapas dishes in ten minutes, our small group tours to Europe take you to the places the chefs dream about.

On every one of our tours, there’s a moment you step back, take a deep breath, and say ‘WOW!’ We travel to national parks, Alpine vistas, tree-lined lakes, and Europe’s best natural wonders.
