In order for us to include a holiday, it has to offer unique appeal and masses of interest. Some places, for example, are chosen for their outstanding natural beauty, wealth of flora and fauna, and stunningly pretty locations. Others offer exceptional cultural interest and are packed with historic highlights, architectural treasures, fine art and ancient monuments. All appeal to lovers of fine food and wines, so we always try and build in lots of tasting opportunities en route!
If you book a guided holiday, then you do so in confidence that your Headwater leader will have been specially chosen for his/her skills suited to this particular trip. So, on tours with a high cultural appeal, the guide will be exceptionally well informed on history, art and literature, whereas our guides in the mountains will share with you their wealth of knowledge on local plants, animals, birds and butterflies.
Customers on self-guided holidays will be provided with meticulously researched regional and route notes crammed with up-to-the-minute details and information on their chosen trip.
We also take great effort to ensure that each day is different too, with lots of unexpected experiences waiting round every corner. We want you to really get under the skin of the place you are visiting, and to understand what makes it "tick". So we make sure our routes our full of sensory appeal and interest: you'll the sights, hear the sounds, breathe in the clean air, touch the people and, of course, taste the cuisine.
If you want an itinerary personally created for you and your party, that's no problem either. In fact, we offer so much flexibility over holiday durations, travel choices, regional departures, extra nights and combined trips that virtually every booking is tailor-made. We will work with what you tell us to do. If you want a holiday shortened to a long weekend, or if you want to add a city break to a rural week in the country, then we just make the arrangements to suit. If you are celebrating a special occasion, then ask us about upgrading accommodation, nor forgetting business/ first class air fares.
