For many people, finding time to put their feet up, let alone research and book a holiday, can be pretty tricky, and escorted tours to Italy, America, Canada or any other popular destination can provide the hassle-free solution to making sure everyone has access to affordable summer or winter breaks each year. European escorted tours offer exactly what you would expect, meticulously organised, upmarket yet affordable breaks to desirable European destinations, complete with professional, knowledgeable and most importantly, passionate and fascinating tour managers. Escorted coach tours and air holidays are all about the tour manager imparting their knowledge, experiences and passion about the city, seaside or countryside destination that you are interested in visiting, and offering you a choice of ways to see that place in all its glory.
Taking an escorted tour to a particular destination with a reputable travel company will ensure that you don’t miss out on key attractions, breathtaking sights, unmissable activities, day trips or award-winning restaurants and will all but guarantee that you stay in the most appropriate accommodation for your budget, requirements and interests. The idea of an escorted tour is to include flights, accommodation, transfers and guided tours in one easy-to-book package; it is about making the whole process of going on holiday, from the time you book it to the time you arrive back home, quick, easy, efficient and above all, enjoyable.
You can take an escorted tour to almost anywhere in the world, but some of the best ones are quite close to home. European city breaks work really well as escorted tours. Escorted tours to Barcelona are particularly popular as they allow you to see this beautiful Spanish city and experience its rich art scene, history and culture in just four days. Start with a tour of the city, which will give you an insight into Barcelona’s history and give you a taste of what each different community has to offer, and later explore them further at your leisure. See Gaudi’s famous and magnificent Sagrada Familia, or visit ‘Battlo’, his incredibly unusual and surreal house, both of which will have you gawping in amazement. Stroll down Las Ramblas, Barcelona’s main street, and experience street markets selling fresh Catalan produce and traditional arts and crafts, and take a minute to wander off the beaten track into the ‘Barri Gotic’ to find incredible authentic tapas, friendly bars and handmade treasures to take home and keep forever. Don’t forget to check out the famous Nou Camp while you’re there. Home to Barcelona Football Club, the sheer size of the stadium is absolutely staggering!
