The world's highlights at your fingertips...
From the late 17th century to the mid-19th century, the ‘Grand Tour’ was an essential part of an aristocratic young man’s education, taking in the cultural treasures (and lower pleasures) of France and Italy over the course of months or even years. These days, of course, ‘grand tours’ are no longer the preserve of the super-wealthy, no longer limited to Western Europe and not nearly as time-consuming. The highlights of a country - or even an entire continent - may be comfortably and affordably enjoyed with just a few weeks to spare, and Titan’s phenomenally popular transcontinental ‘grand tours’, showcased below, invite you to do just that…
Grand American Coast to Coast
To cross this mighty country on land from West to East presents a completely unique travel experience, allowing a true appreciation of the immense diversity of landscapes, culture and people that make up the USA.
Balanced with time at leisure, this extraordinary holiday covers over 4,000 miles across no less than 14 states - an experience few travellers can claim to have realised.
Grand Canadian Coast to Coast
Uniting the highlights of Canada east and west, this tour is unmatched in the breadth of its itinerary and value for money. There is simply no better single introduction to this extraordinary country, including the inspiring spectacle of Niagara Falls, the shopping paradise of Toronto and the elegant cities of Québec in the east, combined with a leisurely exploration of the stunningly beautiful Rocky Mountains, and a three-night stay in Vancouver in the west. Additional highlights include a visit to the enchanting Lake Louise, a night in the mountain resort of Sun Peaks and a superb Ice Explorer ride on the Athabasca Glacier.
Grand Antipodean Odyssey
Travelling as far as Australia and New Zealand, for most, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the world ‘down under’. This itinerary has been perfectly designed to cover both fascinating countries, including all the important icons, the culture and some of the most scenic places in the world. Spend three nights each in Perth and Sydney, and four in Cairns to appreciate the cities and their beautiful locations. Take a lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, as well as spending time to watch the sun set over Uluru. All this, before travelling to New Zealand for eleven nights to enjoy the country’s incredible national parklands, including the magnificent Milford Sound.
Grand Safari Kenya
Experience the unique romance of Kenya - the empire; the spectacular landscapes immortalised in the film Out of Africa; and, above all, the romance of a ‘classic’ safari. Traverse lush rainforests and sun-baked plains in search of the iconic ‘big five’ - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, a wonderful checklist for modern day travellers looking to shoot the perfect photograph. Game viewing has been recently enhanced, with the introduction of an additional day on safari in the Masai Mara, and a stay at the fully refurbished Treetops Lodge is unforgettable.
Grand Tour of South America
Few holidays can match this grand tour in scope, comfort and inclusions, encompassing four enthralling countries and myriad iconic highlights. Other operators’ ‘grand tours’ only include Brazil, Argentina and Chile - we also include Peru. All Latin America’s great wonders are here - the mysterious mountain-top Inca city of Machu Picchu, the breathtaking Iguazu Falls, the stunning lake-lands of Chile and Argentina and exhilarating Rio. Our epic journey also presents unmissable opportunities to discover the colonial elegance of Cuzco and Santiago and the passion of Buenos Aires.
Grand Tour of Asia
From the harbourside skyscrapers of Hong Kong to the glittering shopping mecca of Singapore and the soaring towers of Kuala Lumpur, the energy and ambition of Asia is most apparent in its vibrant cities. Yet there are myriad other aspects to this ever-surprising and fascinating continent - tranquillity, tradition, scenery and spiritualism. This wide-ranging ‘grand tour’, a perfect introduction to Asia, presents a complete picture informed by visits to four remarkable countries in which ancient and modern, east and west co-exist harmoniously - countries with a profound British influence in their history and character.
Grand Tour of Italy
Discover Italy in its full splendour on this grand tour, covering the distance from Venice in the north, through Emilia Romagna and Tuscany to Southern Italy, taking a short boat crossing over to the island of Sicily.
You will certainly come away with a fine flavour and sense of Italy in all its charming completeness.
The ultimate blend of ancient and ultramodern, natural splendour and urban vibrancy, iconic wonders and exquisite treasures, China is touring holiday heaven. This comprehensive, outstanding value introductory tour takes in the historical highlights - the awe-inspiring Great Wall of China, Beijing’s majestic Forbidden City and the remarkable Terracotta Army - yet it also includes a delightfully scenic 3-night Yangtze cruise, a stay in dazzling Shanghai and a memorable visit to Chengdu’s Panda Breeding Institute.
