Intro Image

The Special Group Tours Advantage is our unique and intimate understanding of what you expect traveling in the UK and Europe.


We have not only visited but have spent many years living in and loving the cultures you will experience down the ‘B’ Roads and off the beaten track. We have worked with local suppliers and our guide/companion team for over a decade, creating unique special interest itineraries. Special Group Tours offers our “insider” knowledge to you.

What is Small Group Touring?
Small Group Touring is traveling with just 2 - 14 guests per departure, treating you as an individual and not a number. Explore off the beaten track, not just ticking the boxes of a standardized route, discover 'hidden' gems at a leisurely touring pace. Of course you'll see the major sites but so much more too!

Custom Tailor Made Trips
Any group – Any size – Any time – Any theme -- Looking for a tour and can’t quite find something scheduled that perfectly fits your wishes? Let us provide you with the solution. All you have to do is choose the dates! We can plan and operate tours of any length throughout the UK and Europe. It can be a basic, general sightseeing tour or you can ask us for a special themed itinerary or around a specific activity such as walking or wildlife seeking. Special Group Tours will put together your program specifically to suit YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS. Please email us your wishes or give us a ring to discuss options. We will get you a quote with itinerary suggestions and work with you to create the itinerary to best suit you. Special Group Tours can organize your tour in its entirety, from the moment you touch down at your airport to when we deliver you back there at the end of a perfect holiday. Transport, accommodation, meal arrangements, guides and entrances can all be part of the package. Alternatively, we can incorporate a combination independent and private/custom tour package if that better suits. Just tell us what you want...the rest is up to us! For some examples: Ed and his wife fulfilled a lifetime’s ambition to explore Roman Britain; Mort and Miriam combined the Jewish heritage of Spain with golf; the Greenstein family had their own Harry Potter tour; Mike & Sigrid followed Jane Austen & George Elliot; Attarah enjoyed a Tudor Kent outing; Heather & her husband loved their Joe Strummer and Clash London day out… You name the place/theme of interest, we will take you there!

While we have a handful of scheduled tour departures for people to join, the majority of what we do is PRIVATE CUSTOM TOUR PACKAGES for couples, families, schools and hobby clubs.

Traveling in small groups and on interesting itineraries throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, you will be taken behind the tourist facade. Meet the locals, seeing both the famous sites (after the crowds have left) and the hidden gems that those herded on big buses miss. Live the history of the areas you visit, sample life in small villages and have experiences not open to larger groups, in the company of your multi talented driver/guide/companion.
