A Tour Manager meets all our guests in London at St Pancras International and escorts the group throughout the holiday, meaning that you can relax, never having to plan further ahead than the next sight or excursion. On many of our excursions a local guide also joins the group to share their in-depth knowledge of the region's history and attractions.
