New Year is a time to celebrate, and what better way to reflect on the year past and ring in the New Year than with festive revelry in an excitingly unfamiliar destination? Whether you choose a mountain resort for a seasonal escape or a sparkling city for a memorable party, you will find the perfect balance between sightseeing, free time and festivities. Our New Year tours offer a sociable group atmosphere combined with sumptuous gala dinners, live music, dancing, fireworks and special regional celebrations that you will cherish throughout the year.

We offer guided trips around Yorkshire where you can enjoy a delicious three-course meal on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and for the ultimate New Year's Eve experience, travel to Scotland to encounter Hogmanay in Edinburgh. After the special gala dinner at the hotel, join the celebrations in the city centre with live music and parades through the streets. If you're after a different sort of New Year tour, for something a bit special we also have a river cruise along the Rhine, giving you the chance to see in the New Year in style aboard a splendid ship as you meander between towns along the river.

Our New Year tours are designed to ensure that you can truly enjoy every moment of the festive season, without the rush and stress that is normally associated with the tour period. All of our tours are escorted by Tour Managers who play an important role in ensuring that every part of your tour runs smoothly. They are also ready to answer any questions that you may have about the destinations you are visiting or the tour.
