Europe & The Med

Cruises & River Cruises

We deal with all the major ocean cruise and river cruise companies, and particularly enjoy adding a pre or post cruise stay to make a fabulous land + sea holiday.


Portofino, Italy

If you have not cruises before, or would like a refresher, we would be delighted to go through with you what's on offer and explain the differences between the cruise lines, and from there, where to be on the ship. In general, cruises fall in to one of a number of categories...

 •   Standard Ocean Cruises
 •   Luxury Cruises (more expensive at first glance but can be better value in the long run)
 •   All Inclusive Cruises (i.e. all meals, premium drinks, tips, excursions)
 •   River Cruising
 •   Cruising from Southampton ( pros include avoiding all the hassle with flying, cons include the extra time needed to get to the warmer parts of the Mediterranean)
 •   Norwegian Fjords (Hurtigruten run several cruises throughout the year)
 •   Tall Ships (Star Clippers being our favourite!)

Beach Holidays in the best resorts

Are you looking for a charming Mediterranean resort, one with a relaxed vibe, good atmosphere, and a decent selection of cafes and tavernas for dinner? Although we have access to a huge amount of hotels, we specialise in the better hotels in the nicest resorts.


Symi, Greece

Some of our favourites are the Greek Islands, such as Crete, Skiathos, Kefalonia, Rhodes, Santorini, but also very popular are the resorts along the Croatian Coast from Dubrovnik in the south up to beautiful Rovinj in the north.

There are some wonderful places to stay in Mallorca, well away form the party towns, and here especially it is worthwhile hiring a car to explore some of the scenic villages, even if just for a few days. If you enjoy walking and scenery, then Madeira is another great choice. For something a little special, stay in a quinta, a manor house that has been converted into a small hotel.

Another favourite is the Amalfi Coast including Sorrento, where you can combine a beach break with exceptional sightseeing options - Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum, Capri, Amalfi, Naples and more. Or Sicily - the resort of Taormina is well placed for visits to Mount Etna and Syracuse.

Escorted Tours

Our two best selling destinations for escorted tours are Spain and Italy, and in particular the cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada in Spain, and Sorrento & The Amalfi Coast in Italy.

Alhambra Palace, Spain

Not all tours mean you have to move around from hotel to hotel, for example on Titan's 'Madeira - Pearl of the Atlantic', you stay in one centrally located hotel for the whole week and take a number of excursions from there which are all included in the package.

And escorted tours are a great way to see two countries in one holiday. One of the best is Riviera's 'Lake Como, St. Moritz, & The Bernina Express' which combines one of the most beautiful Italian lakes (Lake Como) and St. Moritz in the Swiss Alps, with a journey on the spectacular alpine railway 'Bernina Express', and also includes a lake cruise, and a private visit to an enchanting villa.
