Europe Tours, Holidays & 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.

We hope to welcome you on a tour of Europe soon.

Europe tour reviews

Absolutely first class tour. The guide, itinerary, transport arrangements excellent. Katherine the guide is an absolute GEM. So knowledgeable and helpful, really helped to make the tour a wonderful experience. Thanks to Sarah Bansgrove, who made booking the holiday so simple and easy. Be prepared to budget for food which like everything in Iceland is expensive. However Iceland is a unique country. It has so much to offer and is so diverse it's unbelievable. One of the best holidays i've ever had. We will be going back.”

Tour was very enjoyable and the guide and bus driver were knowledgeable and friendly.

I had thought it was a small tour of only 10 people but there were 30 people on the tour but the bus could seat 50 so there was plenty of room for everyone.”  

Jacqueline Mergard • Submitted 3 Apr 2017

AnnaLaura was very informative, friendly and funny, well organized and prompt. I really enjoyed her and her passion for her country. I feel like I got to see and experience beautiful Iceland to it's fullest. I would have liked to at least try a 'sample plate' of the local cuisine (whale, fermented shark, lamb, horse, etc.) without having to order an entire entree of just one specialty meat. Overall a very memorable holiday that will be cherished forever! ”

We're excited to announce that the wild and remote frontier of Greenland is our newest destination and we're offering four touring itineraries with departures in winter and summer. 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.
