Arranging a Tour


Through email correspondence, your areas of interest will be established with plenty of suggestions to help you make your choices. Past itineraries are available to provide inspiration.

You’re consulted fully in the devising of your own customized itinerary. This sets out a timetable for everything you’ll see and do. Once finalised, John then takes care of all the booking arrangements.

Sufficient flexibility is built in to ‘tarry a while’ anywhere you choose and take advantage of more sightseeing ‘opportunities’ as they arise.

Quality B&B accommodation en route is prearranged in selected inns and guest houses, with a relaxing pub meal and a pint of beer or two in the evening.

A suitable car or van is provided with ample, comfortable seating and luggage space.

Meals are taken in good, interesting pubs, with a choice of excellent, local traditional ales. Pubs are open all day, each with a distinctive menu, so you can eat and drink conveniently and well.

Length of stay is up to you (5, 7, 10, 12 or more days). From John’s exhaustive knowledge of the British Isles, you get everywhere quickly and smoothly, driving through scenic vistas en route.

Each day, each of the places to be visited, together with its historical background, is described beforehand so you know what to expect when you get there.

On arrival, I’ll meet you and be your driver/guide throughout your stay. There are direct flights to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, Birmingham and Manchester as well as the London airports.

How far ahead do I need to book?

A Select Sojourning Solution has been ‘turned round’ in as little as three weeks of the initial request! However, bookings are usually made further in advance. Book early to ensure availability.

How do I take it from here?

If you want to express interest in a Select Sojourning Solution and to get to know more, just contact John without obligation. He will then ‘pick up the ball and run with it’. Part of the fun will be the dialogue you will have as you exchange email correspondence.
