An escorted tour is an exclusive holiday package, tailor made just for you. Instead of spending all your time booking excursions and deciding which must-do activities you can make time for, and which ones you can skip, book an escorted tour – where everything is organised for you. An escorted tour is designed to put you at ease, knowing all the best activities are being planned for your convenience.

What’s the difference between an escorted tour and a self-guided tour?

On an escorted tour your package will include your transatlantic flights, accommodations in our selected tour hotels, a specially curated itinerary that you are sure to love, and the service of a professional Tour Director for the entirety of your trip. You can choose from one of our thirty escorted tour packages – each one of which is more exciting than the last.

On a self-guided tour, you will not have the assistance and service of a professional Tour Director. Our travel experts can create the perfect tailor-made package for you, but when it comes to checking out the sites and travelling around, you will be touring independently.

Favourite Destination: I love going on escorted tour holidays as I find them a great way to see the USA. Travel with a group of like minded visitors, led by a travel director who knows all the best spots to go! I especially enjoy escorted tours to the Deep South where you can soak up all the fantastic music culture and history, New England in the fall to take in all that amazing nature and scenery and to Canada to see the majestic scenery of the Rocky Mountains!
