Ranging from 3 to 5 days in length, our short breaks are perfect for a long weekend away, added on to one of our longer tours, or combined as you wish to form the basis of a tailor-made holiday. We have a number of short stays to several Indian cities, including Agra, home to the Taj Mahal. Wing your way to cosmopolitan Shanghai or historic Beijing in China, discover the treasures of King Tutankhamen in Cairo or visit Istanbul, the city of Sultans in Turkey. Explore the palaces of the tsars in St Petersburg and iconic Red Square in Moscow, or discover archaeological gems in Jordan, home to the Rose City of Petra. One things for certain - you've got plenty to choose from!
Our short stays start any day of the year, subject to site opening schedules. We will take care of all the details, from your accommodation and transportation, to the expert local guides who will show you around, providing you with a break that balances guided sightseeing with plenty of free time for you to explore and relax on your own.
