About Us


Our Unique Tours

Great British Journeys aims to provide inclusive, immersive and enjoyable tours to discover the many physical and cultural highlights of England, Scotland and Wales. We noticed there were an increasing number of experienced travellers who were seeking to avoid the stress organizing their own itinerary but also wanted to avoid traditional motor-coach tours; as a perfect solution the Great British Journeys small-group touring concept was born. On a Great British Journey you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds – the reassurance of a planned itinerary as well as a genuine insight into Britain. You’ll travel in a small, comfortable touring vehicle in the company of an experienced tour leader and with a maximum group size of just 16 travel companions. Our smaller, more personal tours guarantee an authentic but hassle-free touring experience.
