All of our Group Tours through Europe use local public transport to get between cities and points of interest. We use this mode of transport to keep carbon emissions low and it is often the most practical and efficient way of travelling. This is also an excellent opportunity to get chatting to locals and learn about the local culture, seeing the way the region changes outside your window. When travelling long distances, where possible we use comfortable overnight trains. Using trains instead of taking flights keeps our carbon emissions low and maximises the time spent in each city.
Local Culture - Throughout the tour, your experienced Tour Leader will recommend restaurants and cafes when meals are not included. These restaurants are hand-picked for being small and owned by local families or businesses. They are also chosen for their local cuisine and their ability to serve large groups. Included on this tour is entry to many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a guided tour of Diocletian’s Palace. The entry fees for these sites go towards maintaining, restoring and protecting the cultural sites we visit. Furthermore, the use of local guides help to explain the historical background and cultural significance of the places we visit. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and get to know the many challenges currently facing these sites.
