Our new Small Group Tours enjoy a maximum group size of just 20 allowing access to accommodation and excursions that simply would not be possible with a larger group.
Whilst our customers often tell us how much they love our holidays just as they are, it's our ambition to grow and evolve, developing tours that offer a way to see the UK and Europe as never before. This principle is how the idea for our exclusive small group tours took hold; we want to take you to undiscovered destinations, arrange stays at little known hotels and whisk you off on journeys aboard incomparable trains. Sometimes this just isn't possible with our usual sized groups however, so we've been working hard to bring you eight new tours where the group numbers will never top twenty.
Tulloch Castle still boasts many original features, including its 250-year old Great Hall. With just 20 rooms on site, it has never been possible for us to book this incredible hotel for our customers before.
