Audio Guide System

An Audio Guide System is used on all tours and allows our lecturers to talk to participants at a normal voice level via a microphone. You are able to listen via a comfortable earpiece and a small receiver. As a result you do not have to stay close to a lecturer, straining to hear. Equally convenient, you can walk at will through a room or building listening from a good distance, or not, should personal preference dictate. In essence, it gives you greater physical independence while remaining part of the group and without having to strain to hear. It is also fully compatible with ‘loop’ system hearing aids.

a hidden europe

Slovenia
Tuesday 2 - Monday 8 June 2020 (7 Days)
Slovenia has truly come of age! It is a small nation of unspoilt beauty, superb food and wine with one of the most handsome capitals in central Europe - Ljubljana. Over the course of a week we shall explore many of the country’s most atmospheric places from the ‘mini-Venice’ at coastal Piran to handsome Lake Bled, and from medieval Ptuj to the elegant buildings of Ljubljana.

Italy
Monday 6 - Saturday 11 July 2020 (6 Days)
A warm July evening in Verona’s Roman great amphitheatre, enveloped by opera is always memorable. Equally, our visit will embrace the summer delights of the country villas and gardens of the Valpolicella wine region and nearby Lake Garda, all tantalisingly close to the civic magnificence of one of northern Italy’s most delightful cities, Verona.

A Weekend in Renaissance Bologna

Popes & Patricians:

Italy
Thursday 26 - Sunday 29 November 2020 (4 Days)
Bologna is renowned for its fine medieval architecture in warmly welcoming brick and its distinguished role in the history of painting. The city centre is a delight to stroll in, and its churches and picture gallery house many gems, surprisingly little known. Of course, no round of cultural exploration would function properly without adequate sustenance and Bologna is one of the great culinary cities of Italy.
