Our Philosophy of Travel

A RICH EXPERIENCE AT A GENTLE PACE 

In entertaining our discerning visitors over the years, we have learned a lot about what works the best. Transporting small groups in well-maintained luxury English cars creates a much more enjoyable time.  That is why we do not operate minibuses, vans or coaches. We do not take large groups, but cater for 2 to 6 people per tour. Our schedules are full of enjoyment, but avoid tiring, fast, and frantic rushing around.

Using cars means we can reach places large buses cannot, like some of the best viewpoints for your pictures.  We can also stop nearer to wonderful places and do convenient drop-offs.  We plan our itineraries with care, aiming for quality, not quantity.

Our philosophy is a rich experience at a gentle pace.

We do not race around ticking boxes but select sights on the tours for quiet and extraordinary beauty and great experiences.  Our staff have lived and worked for decades in the areas we visit.  We know the places very well and have expert knowledge of their history.

That is why our guests have given us feedback:
‘Thank you! This is so beautiful’ , ‘I can’t believe I didn’t know about it.’
