Frequently Asked Questions

What will I experience on this Premium Escorted Tour?
If you enjoy the art of travelling in comfort and style then a Premium Escorted Tour is for you. You’ll travel in a group that is restricted to around 40 fellow travellers. Travel is aboard a state of the art motorcoach with air-conditioning, on-board WiFi, reclining seats and oversized windows.
For your comfort there is an emergency washroom on-board too.  An experienced tour manager will lead the tour and your coach will be expertly driven by a professional driver. In certain cities you’ll be joined by a local guide who will provide local insight and show you the highlights. These tours are fully inclusive of accommodation, transportation, admission fees and most meals.

A stop is usually made for lunch in a town or city where there is a choice of restaurants available.Dinner is usually enjoyed as a group and the menu will be table d’hote, which means a selection of house specials.
