Things to remember…  Packaged Itinerary This means the price you see includes the costs for each attraction/experience that is denoted in bold and listed under 'Inclusions'.  Suggested Itinerary This means that we are providing you with ideas for a tour that we would be happy to arrange for you if you so wish. The Sales Team can provide you with a revised quotation price based on any tour ideas that you feel would best suit your customer base. We would then arrange guided tours, purchase of tickets and payment of entrance fees on your behalf.  What To Do All the attractions and hotels featured on the following pages can be mixed and matched according to your requirements. We are always happy to provide you with a bespoke solution for your tour programme.  Additional Hotels We only have room in the brochure to feature some of our hotels. We have reserved space at many more. Call us for more information.  Overnight Hotels We understand that a successful tour is not just about the mainstay and that the hotels your passengers stay at along the way, are a very important start and end to the tour. We have a great selection of hotels in excellent locations to suit all tastes and budgets. If you would like overnights adding to or changing on any of your tours, or have a preferred hotel/route, please give our Sales Team a call.  Low Emissions Zones & Access Regulation We cannot be held liable for any penalties, tickets or charges that come from entry into towns and cities with low emission zones and/or access regulations. New zones are regularly being introduced into towns and cities across Europe. Please check before costing and operating your tour.  Drivers Hours Our itineraries are created with drivers’ regulations in mind, under EU rules Regulation 561/2006, and look to comply with daily driving, break and rest requirements. For some of our longer European itineraries, a driver’s day off has not always been incorporated as they can be operated under the 12-day rule. However we are happy to amend the itinerary to allow for a driver’s day off or arrange local hire if you require it.

We do the hard work, so you don't have to...
