Why join our accompanied Group Tours?
Our accompanied group tours are very relaxed affairs. Together with a group of other car owners (typically about 30 people/15 cars in a group), and accompanied by a Classic Travelling Tour Director, we follow the most beautiful routes, stay in charming, high-quality hotels, and savour the local culture, events, attractions and food. There are no early starts, no convoy driving, no competitive stages – just a relaxing and fun touring holiday. Our detailed tour books, tour director and a tour mechanic (no mechanics on UK tours) ensures everything goes without a hitch.
We have carefully designed our tours to take you beyond the guidebook, for a real insight into a country or region, thanks to the experience & knowledge of the Tour Director. The intimate group size allows us to introduce you to the kinds of people and places often inaccessible to others. It also allows us to handpick smaller, boutique properties that don’t accommodate large groups and ensures more camaraderie with your fellow tour participants, and with your Tour Director whose knowledge will bring each destination to life.
The whole basis of Classic Travelling tours is to enjoy yourselves, so we’ve made it as easy as possible to relax.
“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!”
Drive your car on superb roads and experience fabulous scenic routes, safe in the knowledge we’ve already driven every mile to choose the best views and highlight the best places to stop. All the information is provided in our comprehensive Tour Book which gives detailed directions, maps, hotel information, and everything to do, see and visit each day. Pre-loaded Garmin GPS/sat-navs are available on loan, or GPS files can be given to upload to your own device, to ensure navigation is as hassle-free as possible.
We personally handpick and check each hotel to make sure that it has character and all the luxuries you’d expect, and that suitable parking for your car is available. Stay in gorgeous, charming, high-quality hotels—usually 4-5 star standard and not soul-less chains. The food is of excellent quality and breakfast is always included. Three-course dinners, with wine, are also included most evenings.
Accompanied group tours for up to 20 classic, vintage or sports cars. Enjoy friendly camaraderie with your fellow travellers. There are no early starts, no convoy driving, no competitive stages. During most of our tours, we often organise events such as concerts, private guided tours, museum visits etc.
We take an experienced classic car mechanic on all tours outside the UK and Ireland—in case of ‘failures to proceed’. All our group tours are accompanied by an experienced, knowledgeable and friendly Tour Director and associate, allowing you to relax and enjoy the experience, for a truly unforgettable time and happy memories.
