European guided tours
Holidays in Europe offer up scenic splendour, artistic treasures and an extraordinary cultural heritage – and best of all, we've got everything right on our doorstep.
Our expertly designed European tours allow you to rekindle a love affair with favourites like Italy and Greece, or discover the delights of Eastern Europe and Iceland. Uncover the beauty of the Balkans on a journey through Montenegro and Croatia, or explore the culture-filled cities of Andalucia. Ride on Switzerland’s scenic railways, or cruise Norway’s wow-factor fjords.
Your trip doesn’t have to be all-action, though. When it comes to escorted tours, Europe is one of the best places to take things a little slower. Stay in just one or two locations (Italy’s Lake Orta, perhaps, or the Greek island of Corfu), and combine days out with time relaxing for the best of both worlds.
Another aspect European holidays really deliver on is cuisine. Whichever corner of the continent you’re exploring, you can look forward to delicious local specialities, from Portuguese fish stews to Italian pasta dishes to sweet, sticky Turkish delight. And we’ve not even mentioned the wine – full-bodied reds in Tuscany, aromatic whites in Romania, sherry in Jerez, port in the Douro Valley… join us on one of our award-winning Europe tours and raise a glass to this magical part of the world.

More Information about Europe
Our European escorted tours are designed to show you the best of your chosen destination. Each one is accompanied by one of our tour managers, so you’ll have someone on hand to make sure the trip runs seamlessly. A selection of excursions will be included, often with expert local guides to offer that extra bit of insight and local knowledge. Effortless travel is key on all of our touring holidays. Europe is a big place, and working out where to go, what to do and how to get there can be time-consuming. With us, all of that is taken care of - all you need to do is pack your suitcase and enjoy!
Another plus-point of our European coach tours is the fact that our VIP door-to-door travel service (chauffeur-driven transfers to and from your departure airport or port, or to your UK hotel) is included on every itinerary. It doesn’t matter how far you live from the airport, either – we cover everywhere in the UK (except a handful of places where cars aren’t allowed).
There isn't really a 'bad' time to visit - it all depends what sort of Europe tour you're interested in. For a trip to southern Spain, early and late summer are ideal, with plenty of sunshine and warm evenings for dining al fresco. If you're desperate to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, you'll want a winter date. Travelling early or late in the season tends to offer better value, so is ideal if you're on a budget.
Delicious - and incredibly varied. Every region will have its own speciality dishes, and we'd highly recommend trying a few on our escorted tours. Europe is a big place, so you'll find everything from fermented shark in Iceland (definitely an acquired taste) to honey-soaked baklava in Greece and Turkey.
Europe is a big wine producer, so you'll find hundreds of local labels to try, from dry sparkling wines in Italy to Portugal's sweet, fortified wine. Don't forget to try a shot or two of local liqueur too - a little bottle often makes a great souvenir, reminding you of your Europe tour once you're back home.
Tipping customs will vary from country to country, so it's worth checking before you leave what the norms are - in Italy, for example, there's usually a set cover charge in restaurants, so there's no need to tip on top of this. If you're travelling on one of our European tours, you'll find information on tipping and gratuities on the useful information pack we'll send you with your final documents. Your tour manager will be able to advise you as well.
Currently, UK residents don't need a visa to travel in Europe, as long as the stay is less than 90 days. From 2024, you may need to apply for a visa waiver – our travel advisors can let you know more on the visa requirements for holidays to Europe when you book.
Planning tours of Europe can be tricky, particularly if you’re hoping to travel across multiple countries on your holidays. Europe covers an area of almost 4 million square miles, so start by narrowing down your search area. Our tours cover little pockets of Europe and have all been designed to give you a real flavour of your destinations, from highlights to hidden gems. We’ve worked out the route, organised transport and hotels, and pre-booked any tickets ready – if you want a hassle-free experience on your holiday, booking a Titan tour really is the way to go.
