WHY JOIN OUR GROUP TOURS?
The whole basis of Classic Travelling tours is to enjoy yourselves. Classic Travelling drives each route in advance to ensure it is appropriate and scenic, and be able to give you accurate directions; we personally check each hotel to make sure that it has character, and that suitable parking is available; and we scout local activities and visits, so that you can make the most of your holiday. Each car is given a comprehensive tour book detailing all this information.

“We should have joined one of your tours ages ago! It was beautifully planned and executed with those small touches and unexpected extras, which made all the difference. It was a pleasure to be so well looked after, yet to still have our independence! Not at all the regimental exercise we had assumed!” H.B., Lincolnshire
