Romantic Tours

For a special holiday with a loved one, we offer a range of romantic holidays to beautiful destinations that inspire relaxation, leisure and affection.

Experience the serenity of a South Pacific Island getaway. Relax on the pristine tropical beaches of Rarotonga the centrepiece of the Cook Islands, snorkel with giant manta rays on a coral reef off Fiji or dive through the famed underwater World War II museum in the waters of Micronesia.

Consider a European city break and wander through the cobblestone streets of Prague towards the famed opera house for a night of theatrical passion, take a gondola ride in Venice or admire the views over Paris from the Basilica of Sacré-Cœur before ambling through the artisan district of Montmartre.

Share the adventure of a rail journey with a Trans Siberian adventure from Moscow to China’s imperial city, Beijing. Discover the breath-taking beauty of the Canadian Rockies or enjoy platinum service travelling ‘The Ghan’ from Adelaide to Darwin through Australia’s red centre.

With our selection of romantic holidays we can arrange the perfect escape for two. Call us now on 1800 046 462 and chat with our experienced consultants today.

  • Savour the sights, sounds and flavours of the South — graceful live oaks, elegant antebellum plantations and gracious island resorts. Your Tour Director Writes: “As befits the relaxed pace of the South, you’ll have plenty of time to discover the highlights of the region and several afternoons set aside for you to explore on your own. The places you stay at night will be as memorable as the sights you see during the day. Live like a Vanderbilt at the elegant Inn on Biltmore Estate, savour the good life at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, and immerse yourself in the romance of the South at the Hyatt Regency in Savannah.”

    what are people saying about tours?

    Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
