Welcome to the Cultural Travel Company

We offer a wide-ranging programme of excellent value trips to some of Europe’s most beautiful and thought-provoking destinations. We are delighted our first year of trips was well received, with high satisfaction ratings from clients, and we are looking forward to the year to come.

Art, architecture, archaeology, history and music are all on the menu once more in 2019. We have reprised many of our 2018 itineraries, and added several exciting new subjects, but in every case the essentials remain the same. Guest speakers guide our thoughts, and offer expert commentary and analysis, while an experienced tour manager takes care of practicalities, and general support. The result is a convivial, carefully-paced trip with time for independent exploration. Solo travellers are welcome.

All departures in 2019 are guaranteed.
