The Ease of Escorted Touring
We have always booked many escorted touring holidays but the demand within the last year has increased enormously. Why?
This particular type of holiday has become extra popular as from initial arrival onwards your bags are transported to and from each location while you continue to relax and indulge in the ever-changing local scenes. The logistics are taken care of by your driver and guide, who also ensures you are able to experience all the best places each destination has to offer.
The range of destinations these tours cover now extends to most the world. You can experience so many fascinating places including a Passage through the Canadian Rockies, A Week in Japan, Classic Russia and the Best of Western USA. If you can’t find your ideal choice here though, do contact one of our Travel Specialists who can find it for you.
Which Escorted Tour Company?
It’s worth pointing out that similar sounding escorted tours are not the same. They vary a lot in price for seemingly the same tour. Why? Rather like package holidays, you have different grades of tours because some tour companies use higher grade hotels, or more centrally based hotels; some have fewer seats on the coach and more space to relax on board; a whole host of things. Our staff can talk you through all the options – just call us to find out more.

"I can thoroughly recommend Cox & Kings, having travelled with them twice on my own holidays; once to India and a second time to South Africa. I especially love their tours as the small group size ensures that the service provided is a very personal and dedicated one. You stay in excellent quality hotels throughout and on both tours I felt like I got right to the very heart of the countries. In my opinion, Cox & Kings are hard to beat for high quality small group tours and private tailor-made holidays to many of the world's most fascinating regions."
Stuart Marmon, Cheltenham
"I recently experienced first-hand one of Insight Vacations premium escorted journeys, and cannot recommend it highly enough. I enjoyed authentic Signature Experiences, exciting regional cuisine and excellent hotels located in the heart of the action. Their 5-star experience began and ended with their complimentary VIP private chauffeured return transfer service where their driver met me at my front door and took me directly by private car to the airport – a real treat! Why not join us on our exclusive tour with Insight Vacations and discover the stunning beauty of Croatia. Availability is limited, so early booking is strongly recommended."
Mandy Shilling, Chepstow
"Embarking on an escorted tour can often make for quite a daunting experience especially if you're a single traveller but, touring a variety of the world's most stunning regions can make for some of the most amazing experiences you'll ever have the pleasure to encounter. Not only are you looked after by a knowledgeable tour guide for the entire length of your tour, many tours also include exclusive or bespoke experiences unavailable elsewhere. So whether you decide to tour around the south coast of Italy, Japan or New Zealand, you'll never experience anything else quite like it."
Rachel Blake, Cirencester
"An escorted tour is great not only for exploring stunning destinations, they also allow you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and immerse yourself in local cultures. Often, an escorted tour will provide you with memorable, bespoke experiences like an authentic cookery class or an overnight stay at a monastery where you'll learn new skills or have a cultural experience you just can't wait to share when you get back."
Les Bannerman, Clifton
"Leger Holidays offer a huge selection of fully escorted holidays worldwide with travel by luxury coach, air, rail or even cruise. They offer convenient local pick-up points from many of the towns where we have a Miles Morgan Travel shop. Their Luxuria coach offers the ultimate level of comfort with deluxe armchair-style seats, each with its own interactive touch screen offering a wide choice of entertainment. I can’t think of a better way to travel!"
Rachel Jones, Gloucester

Meg Gardiner, Malmesbury
"As many of you know, I am a self-confessed USA addict and see no better way to discover this amazing country than on an escorted tour and the “Best of the West" is one of my favourites. Every Travelsphere holiday is carefully crafted by their team of experts, including trips to the must-see sights and the chance to sample local life, traditions and cuisine. If you want more than just a holiday, Travelsphere has exactly what you’re looking for - they are the escorted tour specialist."
Irene Jones, Monmouth
"There's no better way to explore a country or region than with like-minded people on an escorted tour. Sipping wine at a vineyard in Tuscany, eating a traditional Maori 'Hangi' in New Zealand, or visiting the snow monkeys in Japan is so much better when it can be enjoyed with others. Often, people who meet on escorted tour become friends for life as they have made so many memories together. I'd highly recommend you try an escorted tour at least once in your life."
Alison Saunders, Nailsworth
"At Miles Morgan Travel we understand that the thought of going on holiday by yourself sometimes can be a daunting prospect. That’s why we recommend Just You Holidays.

Just You offer a huge selection of worldwide itineraries, so, if something is on your bucket list, call us today as I’m sure we will find the perfect itinerary for you."
Tracey Murray, Portishead
"I was lucky enough to sample a Wendy Wu tour recently and can see why we have so many customers who return year after year to travel with them. They certainly deserve their 4.7 score out of 5 for their customer service satisfaction. Also, with the upgrade to Business Class from only £99 that’s a good excuse to contact us today!"
Debbie Smith, Ross on Wye
"Saga offer excellent value and amazing experiences to incredible destinations. As a main agent for Saga we have a firm following of repeat customers and it doesn't surprise me to hear that 98% of their customers rate their holiday as 'excellent'."
Abigail Limm, Taunton
"We have been working with Titan for many years and our customers particularly love their VIP door-to–door travel service. Their new Thailand & Cambodia Discovery tour is a brand new, escorted, small-group tour and is really exciting and different – totally unique on the escorted touring market right now! With fantastic accommodation options, such as a luxury tented camp in Thailand, a floating lodge in a National Park in Cambodia, only accessible by boat, plus a boutique hotel in Battambang where the rooms are housed in traditional Khmer wooden houses on stilts, this is a superb addition to their amazing collection of worldwide tours."
Maria Millard, Wells
"An escorted coach tour is a superb way to experience Canada; letting someone else do the driving so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the incredible scenery, all with a professional Tour Director looking after the details. First Class Holidays are award-winning Canada experts who work with us to create the perfect holiday. The Rockies is one of my favourites and includes the famous Rocky Mountaineer which I was lucky enough to experience on a recent First Class Holidays trip and can highly recommend it."
Christine Griffiths, Yeovil
"Is there any better way to reach your destination than by rail? There is something fascinating about seeing the world from this unique perspective, and Great Rail Journeys offer a range of tours from around the world. From the toy trains in India, one of my favourite countries, to the railroads of America; from the Glacier Express in Switzerland to the multitude of railway lines right here in the UK, they have a myriad of fantastic railway journeys that are bound to enthral and delight anyone who travels on them."
