Welcome to 2020…

Our 21st year of operation, offering so many ideas for travel throughout Britain & continental Europe, plus Asia and the USA with the Blue-Roads brand.

Small-coach Touring: What has evolved over the years is the popularity of touring in a small, 16 to 18 seat mini-coach, as against the huge 48 seaters, and we have been leaders in offering the joys and benefits of small-coach touring.

Firstly, with Blue-Roads Touring (formerly Back- Roads Touring) who have been setting the standard for high-quality, mini-coach tours since the 1990s. We have separate brochures for Blue- Roads, one each for Britain/Europe, Asia and, most recently, within the USA. A full list of these tours can be found on page 5, full itineraries on our web site or you can request the brochures.

We also have a great selection of B ‘n B touring suggestions, also in mini 16 seat coaches, ranging from 1 nighters to 2 or 3 weeks and longer! Most of our B ‘n B tours in the U.K. & Ireland are operated by the excellent Rabbies Trail Burners, based in Edinburgh and London. This year they have added a wonderful series of small coach tours with connecting itineraries throughout France, Spain, Portugal and Italy, staying in 3-4 star hotels. Also new for us this year are touring ideas for Greece, Morocco and Iceland.

Discover More: In 2019 we introduced another form of mini-coach touring, but with a difference – our Discover More tours. The difference is, that you stay, usually for 7 nights, at one of 18 wonderful country house locations throughout England, Wales and Scotland which becomes your base while visiting the surrounding areas, again in a 16-seater mini-coach with a local guide. British heritage at its best!

As usual, we have everything you need for London – including tours to “Downton Abbey” – and can help you with independent travel (see page 4) to virtually anywhere in the world. Our experienced team are here to help.

Please explore our web site, request a brochure or give us a call.

Bon Voyage!

British Airways remains our preferred airline to the U.K. but Air Canada, Air Transat & West Jet all have flights from various Canadian cities direct to London's Heathrow or Gatwick airports. Air Canada and Air Transat also have direct flights to Paris and other European cities (tip: if you are thinking of visiting London and Paris, fly into one and out of the other). Other international airlines also have direct flights to their own countries.

On some of our tours we book group rates on BA or AC and we will always offer their current seat sales, if available, when you book.

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.
