City Break Tours

CITY BREAK ADVENTURE TOURS

  • Perfect for travellers short on time looking for an authentic travel experience
  • Organised tours and free time
  • Different levels and styles of accommodation available

Do you want to explore a brand new country but you’re a little short on time? Or have a couple of days to stop-over somewhere en-route to your destination? Then our city break tours are the ideal solution.

Geared to provide travellers with a condensed, authentic travel experience, our city break tours provide the chance to experience the unique culture, meet the locals and try the cuisine of the destination they’re visiting - just in a shorter space of time.

Our city break tours are also ideal for a stopover to another destination or for those looking to spend more time exploring after a long stay in a specific country. It could even be used as a taster to a new destination, which could see you coming back for a longer visit!

Our set city break tours always include at least one guided tour to visit sites of interest such as museums, tourist attractions and architectural sites of importance, and also allow free time to explore yourselves to enjoy local markets, restaurants and theatres, and to take time for a little souvenir shopping along the way too.

Our city break tours can also be tailored to fit around your available times and flights, taking into account if you would like a busy sightseeing itinerary or one with more free time built in for you to explore the city you’re visiting at your own pace.

Accommodation options are also varied, and can be tailored to suit your preferred style of hotel, and your budget, whether this be a boutique hotel, a spa hotel, or a luxury five-star hotel.

For more information about our city break tours, speak to one of our friendly travel consultants today.
