The Travellers' Club - Special Interest Tours
We are proud of our very close association with The Travellers' Club, which goes back over twenty years.
Between us we organise many cultural tours for small companionable groups of like-minded travellers who share an interest in the sites and places we visit. These are particularly fascinating trips - do take time to have a look at the selection on offer.
Planned and Escorted by Experts!
Each tour is planned by an expert in the subject to make the most of the itinerary, whilst allowing enough time for a proper look at sites at a relaxed pace. This expert will escort the group and his or her knowledge will add more interest and depth to the trip. Each expert is specifically chosen for their experience, resourcefulness and flexibility.
Where do we go?
Areas visited are very varied, from one week in Sicily exploring the island's rich culture to a three week tour following the course of the Mekong river through Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Or perhaps a fascinating trip to Burma (Myanmar) is more to your taste. You will find a full list of our cultural tours here with more detail on the following pages.
New tours are always being devised - for example this year Imperial Vienna in October which explores this grandious City. The Painted Churches Of Moldavia is a very special tour to visit the famous painted churches of Romania and the Moldavian Republic. The Mekong River Journey is of particular interest. We have also added Berlin & Dresden, a tour which visits two contrasting German cities and explores their remarkable history and cultural riches. More details on these and many other cultural tours are shown here on the right.
If it is not here we can tailor a trip for you
We tailor-make special interest tours for groups from Museums and Galleries, History and Fine Art Societies to visit art and architectural sites in Europe and beyond.
“It was great fun and a fascinating insight into Central India, where for the most part, we saw no other tourists. The organisation went very well…Of course Richard Hunt is a great tour leader/ guide, he really is a fund of knowledge and so amusing at the same time…It all made for a very successful and enjoyable four weeks”.
