  1. London (England)


    Hope you’ve packed your thermal undies – you’re gonna need them when you touch down in LDN. First: say ‘how do you do’ to the small bunch of trip mates sharing the wintery adventure. Then: get to know one another better at our first included group feed. Ready for three weeks of icy cobbles, frosty canals, cosy pubs and crackling fires? See you bright and early!

    Great trip, hit all the spots

  • Deon Mi January 2024

    Let’s just start with if it wasn’t for sam and Pete being such great travel companions and going above and beyond for us then it wouldn’t have been as good of a trip.
    These two went above and beyond to always make sure we were ok, safe and were always there to give advice or information wherever need me.
