WELCOME TO DHTOUR

For 18 years DHTour has been specializing in sending clients to Britain and Europe as well as customized groups around the world. We are proud to be Canadian agents for the unique and eclectic Back Roads Touring Company. Some of their tours will still be packaged with add-on nights etc. in our regular program but now you can browse all the Back Roads itineraries right here plus we have a separate brochure we will send you on request.

WELCOME TO 2017

This will be our 18th year of offering a series of tours, and ideas for independent travel, throughout Britain, Ireland and continental Europe. “Beautiful Britain & Europe”, 2017 is the sister brochure to Back Roads Touring, 2017, and you can find a summary of all 46 of the Back Roads tours clicking here. Brexit, the UK voting to leave the European union, has resulted in a drop in the value of the British Pound, meaning that virtually all prices to the UK are lower than last year! Check it out!

 

We are again offering Royal Residences and Historic Palaces coupled with a visit to Highclere Castle, the TV home of “Downton Abbey” fame. You will also find more B ‘n B tours, which are proving very popular, as well as regular tours around England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Wales is again a highlight with a very special week built around the world-famous Llangollen International Music Festival in July. London, of course, is strongly featured with everything you need from hotel packages to plenty of suggested day tours and sightseeing.

 

During 2017 we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. It is also the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and the 75th of the ill-fated Dieppe Raid. We have tours going to Vimy in April (request separate brochure) and to Dieppe in August. London, Paris and all the great cities of Europe are waiting and our experienced travel counsellors are here to help you plan the holiday of your dreams. Bon Voyage!

Thank you so much for putting together such a great tour. The Tavistock Hotel was perfectly situated, clean and everyone was very helpful and friendly. Bloomsbury is a safe and pleasant area in which to stay. Rooms were warm; the shower worked well and breakfast was more than adequate. The travel card was a great bonus. The selection of restaurants was excellent. The extra tour to Stonehenge, Bath and Salisbury was interesting and easy to do. We really enjoyed our time in London and hope to make it an annual trip! You can never see enough of London.

Just a note to let you know how pleased we were with our DH Tour to London. The service on B.A. was excellent. The Tavistock Hotel was very satisfactory, centrally located and the London transportation passes were very useful, as was the information you sent us beforehand. Best of all was the service of our guide Gail. She was most informative and helpful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.
