Every great destination has it’s ‘must see’ highlights, and our objective is to ensure that they are as accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
Our fantastic Highlights tours have been carefully designed to recreate the authentic Jules Verne experience into a select range of concise arrangements. Shorter and more affordable than many of our classic tours, yet still encompassing the essential sights, sounds and atmosphere of each inspiring destination.
We’ve created exceptional value by offering a slightly more limited choice of flight and date, and hotels carefully Highlights selected for their balance of facilities, service, and affordability. Rather than filling every day with scheduled arrangements, we’ve built in some additional free time for relaxation or more independent exploration. Those who like to keep busy on holiday will be pleased to find plenty of additional optional activities on offer.
