Why Travel With Us

At Country Travel & Tours, we’ve spent the last 10 years crafting small group itineraries that delve a little bit deeper into culture of our destinations. Traveling scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, our tours invite you to see each destination through the eyes of the people who know it best: the locals who call it home.

What makes us different?

Small Groups of up to 28

The accommodations we chose, whether old country estate, exotic hotel resort or traditional villa, are carefully selected to reflect the character and charm of each destination. Some properties are situated in a stunning setting or have interesting historical and architectural heritage, while others may have been chosen for their owner-hosted welcome or excellent food.

Character is not a substitute for quality, however, which is why all of the accommodations throughout Europe come complete with ensuite facilities, comfortable furnishings and delicious food. We offer a choice of twin, double or single rooms – and while room sizes in older buildings may vary, each room will have its own unique style and character.

With a maximum group size of 28 people on our group tours, we pride ourselves on ensuring that each guest has a personalized experience.

An intimate group allows our expert Tour Leaders to dedicate time to each and every guest. We encourage you to ask questions and share in their immense knowledge and passion for the destinations we visit.

Whether you’re traveling as a couple, as friends or individually, our group tours bring together like-minded individuals to share dinner tables, experiences and memories in the making. You may start your trip as strangers, but we are sure that you’ll end as good friends.

Leisurely Paced Itineraries

We see our guests as travelers who want a hands-on experience of their destination, rather than tourists whose aim is simply to observe. This is why all of our tours throughout Europe are conducted at a leisurely pace that encourages immersion and a true understanding of the places you visit.

The itineraries of our escorted groups cover a wealth of historical and cultural gems that we know you’ll love, but also include plenty of free time for you to explore on your own. This free time is often cited as a highlight of our tours – and whether you choose to spend it visiting a museum, strolling along a riverbank or simply sitting in a café and soaking up the atmosphere, we hope you’ll agree!

Authentic Local Experiences

Our escorted tours give our clients the opportunity to get to know the heart and soul of the destination. This includes visiting the historical sites that shaped the course of its history and taking part in cultural experiences that continue to bind the present with the past.

Language lessons, tea ceremonies, dancing shows and artisan demonstrations are just some of the experiences we feature on our tours, providing our clients with unique cultural insights that help them to really understand the heritage of the places we visit.
