Welcome to our online brochure for 2014! I hope that you find reading it as stimulating as we did assembling it. The scope of our tours now enthusiastically embraces Italy as well as the Iberian Peninsula, Morocco and France. Our purpose is to explore parts of Italy that other tour organisers don't always reach. These tours will be 'all-purpose' with some art, some architecture, a lot of culture, landscapes and fine food. In 2014, we are delighted to feature Winter in Florence, the Emilia Romagna Region (based in Bologna) and two Tours in Sicily.
Although the scope of our tours widen, some things remain stubbornly unchanged: the tours are all-inclusive (all travel, accommodation, meals with drinks, excursions and entrances are included), all are led by Chris Pollard, and all represent extraordinary value for money. In addition, I am delighted to say that I shall be joined on several tours by ‘local pundits’, friends who are nationally respected experts in their field who will add enormously to our enjoyment of the holiday.
In the course of 2012 we introduced the concept of the House Party, groups of maximum eight based in one charming hotel. This has been a great success and as you will see, the House Party figures regularly in 2014. Naturally, some tours do not lend themselves to the House Party format: it all makes for a varied and exciting programme with immense freedom of choice.
