TOURS DE FORCE
Some people can be a bit sniffy about escorted tours, especially if they’ve never been on one. If you’re not sure, it’s time to try one for yourself
Travelling in company on an escorted tour means meeting new people, sharing experiences and making new friends – factors that can be particularly appealing to solo travellers. Another advantage is the convenience – you get to simply sit back and enjoy the view, as the driving is left to someone else. On a trip of this kind, you’ll also be accompanied by a tour manager who’ll deal with logistics and resolve any problems, should they arise. Some companies also arrange experiences that may not be available to individual travellers, such as a private art gallery viewing. An expert may even accompany the tour, making the experience much more enriching than travelling independently. Here is a small selection of the destinations you could visit on a grand tour over the coming months.
