Cities & Sights Escorted Tours

Guided city tours and city sightseeing tours by train

Our multi-centre city sightseeing tours focus on urban life. How people live has changed over the centuries but by seeing everything from museums and architecture, to lively ethnic districts, to lovingly-cultivated botanical gardens, we explore the shared history of city dwellers. By going beyond the tourist traps we take in the unique flavour of each region and with the expertise of local guides are able to open up layers of history known only to those who intimately understand the city. Experience our city sightseeing tours.

Properly guided city sightseeing tours uncover the hidden charms of a city as well as showcase the more obvious attractions. There is something to be said about wandering unescorted and discovering the local culture for yourself but you run the risk of wasting your time, of getting lost in a modern residential area and missing out on the things you wanted to see. Our city sightseeing tours have been meticulously designed to make the most of the knowledge of our local guides but to allow our guests time to explore on their own as well. Should you choose to discover a city alone our city tour managers will be able to offer assistance and guidance on the best sights to see and what to look out for. If you ask your local guide they will also be able to tell you the best places to stop for lunch on your city sightseeing tours.
