Titan Travel: Adventure made effortless
When we talk about our effortless adventures, we genuinely believe that our customers should be able to relax from the moment they book their holiday with us. Our team have worked tirelessly to create magical itineraries that really showcase the best of each destination that we travel to. Combined with our other inclusions – VIP travel service, excursions, and knowledgeable guides and tour managers – we think we know a thing or two about escorted touring.
But don’t just take our word for it. Hear, too, from someone in the know. We chat to product manager, Cassie Stickland, about her thoughts on our tours, as well as her handy top tips on what you can expect from a Titan holiday.
What makes Titan's escorted tours so unique?
Our tours are unique in that we have 45 years of experience in creating fantastic touring holidays and many of our itineraries are longstanding tours within our portfolio, honed over many years. They're tried and tested and unlike many larger touring companies, are designed exclusively with the UK traveller in mind to deliver a truly exceptional holiday experience that is tailored to our customers’ needs.
I always say that there's a thin line between fast-paced and exciting and fast-paced and exhausting. As experts in touring with decades of experience, we have perfected that balance, which is reflected in our customer feedback and repeat booking levels. We also pride ourselves on offering a great variety of touring types, from leisurely week-long jaunts to Europe to more adventurous tours to further flung destinations. Each itinerary is meticulously planned, and every little detail is taken care of. Our VIP door-to-door transfer service is included on every touring holiday with no mileage restrictions, which means that the holiday experience really starts from the moment you leave home.
Why should travellers choose escorted tours in 2023?
There are many reasons for choosing an escorted tour as your holiday of choice but in 2023, with the rising cost of living, value for money feels more important than ever. Going on an escorted tour offers incredible value for money, travelling within a group means the cost of your holiday compared to doing the same itinerary on your own, is considerably lower. Aside from this, an escorted tour is stress-free as we arrange everything for you, including your journeys to and from the airport with our VIP door- to-door home pick-up service included with every tour. You'll also be accompanied by our expert tour managers from start to finish, who are on hand at every stage of your holiday to give you the best local recommendations from the great restaurant located around the corner from the hotel, to getting you to the key sites at the optimum moment to avoid the crowds.
They add so many small touches to a trip that would be impossible to do independently and the reassurance they offer means you can travel to far-flung and adventurous destinations, such as Latin America, and feel safe and well looked after every step of the way. There's also the social aspect. During the last few years most of us have felt very isolated at times and there have been very few opportunities to meet new people and make new friends during the pandemic. On an escorted group tour, you're on holiday with like-minded travellers, often with similar interests and it's a great way to meet new people and many of our customers make lifelong friends on our tours.
What adventures made effortless can customers expect on a Titan holiday
When creating exceptional experiences for our customers, we always look at the small detail, but also the bigger picture. When travelling to a destination, there'll always be the ‘must-see’ experiences that everyone visiting that destination will do. We always consider how we can make this experience even more authentic for our customers, such as bringing in a local expert to talk to them about the sight or even arranging special sunrise access, before a sight is open to the general public, which we have done in the past at Chichen Itza in Mexico for example.
From a bigger picture perspective, it's also the smaller touches outside of the main sites that can really make a tour the best adventure on the market. In Costa Rica, one of our tours stays at a beachfront hotel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. After spending the day at one of the must-visit National Parks, in the late afternoon our local tour manager will meet them on the beach, having set up a table with local beers, rum and soft drinks, and they watch the sunset together over the Pacific Ocean with a cold beer in hand. It's these small touches that really make for an authentic experience and turn a great tour, into the best tour.
When choosing destinations or experiences to add into an itinerary, it's important to consider what it will individually add to the itinerary in terms of culture, adventure, wildlife viewing or a social aspect but equally as important to consider how it fits into the wider itinerary as a whole. A great escorted tour is all about variety and experiencing multiple facets of a destination like culture, gastronomy, history, wildlife, scenery coupled with time to relax, enjoy the hotel facilities and meet new friends.

Cassie loves to experience different cultures and get ‘off the beaten track’. Her favourite travel experience to date was seeing orang-utans and pygmy elephants up close and personal in Malaysian Borneo. Having visited 6 out of the 7 continents worldwide, a trip to Antarctica will be next on the list!
