Europe Your Way!

Break bread in a family-owned vineyard overlooking the rolling Chianti Hills … Marvel at the Eiffel tower lit up at night, or forage for wildflowers and free-growing herbs on Ireland’s untamed Atlantic shores. Yes, this can all be part of a coach tour getaway to the Old World.

“Escorted vacations are a wonderful alternative to a self-drive holiday — especially if time is precious,” says Nicole Murphy, Maritime Travel counsellor, Barrington Place, Halifax, NS. “With hand-picked itineraries, VIP access to major attractions and absolutely no lineups, you can get on with the task of enjoying that dream vacation without any of the hassles sometimes associated with other forms of travel.”
