The Forward style of travel
We focus our travel on places we know well so you benefit from our extensive knowledge.
We like smaller boutique hotels and look for excellent locations, security and comfort, spacious public areas, large rooms that can fit luggage without taking up all the space, good breakfasts and in our 24/7 era, free wi-fi wherever possible. We use mainly 3.5 – 4 star hotels, but have a supply of fantastic luxury places to mix it up as well when suitable.
Your journey will be tailor made for you, so we’ll discuss your preferences and plan your trip to perfectly match your ‘travelbuds’.
An English speaking guide will warmly welcome you upon arrival in each place and will guide you through the famous places along with some hidden gems.
They will help with advice on restaurants, shopping and other things to see as well, and you will have plenty of time to explore on your own. When it is time to move on, you’ll be collected from your hotel and taken to the next exciting destination. Sometimes you will join shared sightseeing tours, and other times you will have private tours, where we know it is worth it.
This allows you to enjoy your journey, without having to worry about the boring bits.

Most people convince a partner or friend to travel with them so all our prices are per person, based on two people travelling together and sharing accommodation with each other. If you are looking for some time out and solitude we can plan a trip just for you. Most of our trips are independent so can be tailored as you wish. We welcome larger groups as well and can often secure discounts for them.
