Europe Tours and Sailing Trips

Visit the more undiscovered side of Europe with our range of escorted group tours and bespoke tailor-made holidays.

Take the road less travelled and visit some of Europe’s best kept secrets in Turkey, Croatia, Iceland, Russia, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. Our group tours to Europe are peppered with plenty of interesting local experiences - watch the amazing whirling dervishes in Turkey, go underground and explore a former Soviet-era bunker in Russia, try a bit of wine tasting on the island of Korcula in Croatia, take a dip in the famous geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon in Iceland and spot the Northern Lights. Physiographically speaking it may be considered part of North America but our newest destination Greenland has long been politically associated with Europe and we now offer an exciting range of winter and summer itineraries for an amazing array of unique adventures and experiences.

We offer a range of guided group tours, sailing holidays and short stays, covering both well-known sites as well as hidden gems, giving you a true flavour of life in these countries. The most difficult decision of course, is choosing where to visit first though our overland-style Eastern Europe tours take some of that hassle away visiting up to eight countries in one go from Estonia to Bulgaria with plenty in between. We hope to welcome you on a tour of Europe soon.

THE TOUR WAS FANTASTIC. REGGIE WAS AWESOME. HIS PASSION FOR HIS COUNTRY, HIS LOVE FOR HIS JOB AND HIS UNENDING KNOWLEDGE MADE THIS AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE.

The tour was comprehensive and wonderful. Being able to experience Gallipoli and learn about the war from a Turkish perspective was invaluable. Our guide Reggie was the best! He was so knowledgeable and friendly, went out of his way to help me during the tour. I have expressed to all of my friends that a tour in Turkey wouldn't be complete without Reggie.

Thanks for a great tour!”  

Nicole Lewis • Submitted 17 May 2017

This tour was absolutely FANTASTIC! I loved and enjoyed everything, the organization that went into the program, the professionalism, the people, the content. Burhan was an exceptional tour guide, you could tell how much he loved his job and had excellent knowledge and enthusiasm. He was kind and helpful through the whole tour and I felt very safe with him. He assisted us when the tour had finished also. Turkey as a country is beautiful and I would love to go back! anyone that has Burhan has a tour guide is extremely lucky. I would defiantly book a tour through On the Go again and I will be recommending Turkey and On the Go to everyone. Amazing experience. Thank you ”

Go in search of the Northern Lights and ride a husky-drawn sled through the snowy landscapes or take a midnight sun cruise to get up close to the spectacular UNESCO-listed icefjords.

Top of our list for Europe

Turkey is a mystical land with a history stretching back to ancient times and Iceland is renowned for great viewing of the Northern Lights. Red Square and St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, plus the amazing collection of art at the Hermitage in St Petersburg are unmissable highlights of a holiday to Russia. Alternatively, for a really relaxing summer break, it's hard to beat sailing the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic to Croatia's many stunning islands. For romantic castles, soothing spa towns, impressive Roman ruins and grand architecture, nothing beats Eastern Europe whether its the historic city of Prague or the medieval metropolis of Krakow.
