Arts and culture holidays
Luckily, it’s a privilege no longer confined to landed gentry: you can embark on your own Grand Tour of Europe, Asia and beyond on a whole host of escorted holidays.
Visit the ancient Pantheon and the Colosseum in Rome, take a gondola through the atmospheric canals of Venice, or get up close to Da Vinci’s classics in the Louvre in Paris. Further afield, you could explore Egypt’s Pyramids, the ethereal Taj Mahal, or the dusty temples of Hanoi. Choose an escorted tour to benefit from expert guides, day trips and exclusive access to key galleries, exhibitions or heritage sites.

Our European art and culture experiences promise a wealth of museums, historic sites and art galleries – all ideal for exploring during the warmer spring and summer months. As Europe starts to cool, consider venturing further afield to Asia and the Americas to explore the highlights of Vietnam, China, Peru and Ecuador.
Our expert-led cultural tours offer a wider variety of itineraries – all including transport, accommodation and the services of expert local guides, who can avoid queues and crowds with timed entry to major exhibitions, shows and galleries.
A smaller group tour is particularly suitable if you’re interested in a specific genre, as some include esteemed guest lecturers who can unearth more history and facts – and also factor in plenty of free time to relax or explore your destination in more depth.
