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.
