Tours & Escorted Tours
For active travellers wishing to get the most from their precious holiday time the concept of including a variety of destinations and experiences on a single trip is a very attractive one. At Charitable Travel we have partnered with reputable and reliable touring operators to ensure your touring holiday is both worry-free and rewarding. Travellers can expect quality accommodation, trained and knowledgeable guides, luggage handling, and transportation on private, climate controlled coaches, minibuses or even in private cars. Offering excellent value for money, many tours include extras, such as meals, entrance fees and excursions, making it easy to budget your trip. Since these elements usually have been arranged in advance prior to arrival, you’ll often skip the queues at attractions, be checked-in already on arrival at your accommodation, and find your luggage whisked up to your room without you touching it.
Many countries are very suited to an organised tour to get the most out of the adventure of travelling there. With sometimes long distances to cover in a tropical climate, air-conditioned transportation can be invaluable. For example, this can be an ideal way to see India and take both the white-marble magnificence of the Taj Mahal as well as the historic palaces and fortresses of Rajasthan. Similarly a tour of the Far East would allow you to take in the sights of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand all on a single trip and with your friendly guides providing the history, context and local expertise as you go.
Tours can of course use very different forms of transportation, and at Charitable Travel we have a whole wealth of touring suggestions and resources. For rail enthusiasts, have you considered a trip aboard the Trans-Mongolian Express taking in mysterious Lake Baikal and the Chinese capital of Beijing? Alternatively, how about a tour from Boston to Washington aboard an Amtrak rail tour in the USA? For cyclists what could be more idyllic than a leisurely trip along the Danube from Vienna to Budapest sampling the local wines and food along the way? You can even opt to use an electric bike on this tour! Finally there are a great variety of walking or hiking tours available to suit all capabilities and interests. You could discover a wine area of Italy as you walk between timeless villages in the Chianti region, climb active steaming volcanoes in Sicily, or even challenge yourself on an organised group hike in Nepal. Along the way you’re sure to bond with your companions, making new friends, and sharing the experiences with others in your group. In fact this aspect can make a touring holiday a great option for single travellers or for those wishing to share their interests with like-minded travel companions or join in with shared learning experiences and adventures.
Charitable Travel is an expert on touring holidays in all their many permutations and can create a wonderful programme tailor-made to your expectations and budget. And as you enjoy one of these wonderful experiences you’ll be travelling in the knowledge that you’re helping your preferred charity as you go
