There are two ways to do group travel – how everyone else does it…
…and how we do it at Forward Travel.
We specialise in small group and escorted tours for seniors and other travellers who know that the treasures lie off the tourist trail.
We take our experience and skill at planning tailor-made itineraries and transfer that to our group travel itinerary planning.
When we plan your travel you won’t find yourself whizzing through five countries in five days sitting on a bus alongside 55 people. We just wouldn’t do that to you.
Group travel done right is about going on the shared experience of a lifetime. We want our travellers to walk away feeling like they have been on a journey that was designed specifically for them, no matter if they are travelling solo or with a group of fifteen others.
Whether you are a single traveller or just prefer the idea of travelling within a group, but want the experience of a tailor-made journey off the beaten track, then you will love our escorted tours.
Choose from remote destinations only ever seen by the tiniest percentage of travellers… or do popular destinations the Forward Travel way and see them in a whole new light.
“Rose has a way of making you feel at ease… she has a way of handling people that is so welcoming and relaxed. She is enthusiastic and knowledgeable and brings so much life to the tour. If there are any hiccups along the way she doesn’t miss a beat and is always ready with a solution.
I don’t think Rose even knows how much she adds to the escorted tours she runs, but in my opinion, she is the icing on the cake and it just wouldn’t be the same without her.”
With our escorted tours there are no surprises. We give you everything you need for the most epic adventure…
…and you will be sharing the experience with a small group of like-minded people who are just as passionate as you about doing travel differently.
“I have been on escorted tours with Forward Travel and other travel agencies… the difference with Forward Travel is that they really do bring together like-minded people – all seasoned travellers who know what they want from a travel experience. And then you have Rose who brings the wow factor.”

Upcoming escorted tours
Scotland, Faroe Islands and Iceland
Setting sail in June 2020, join us for 12 days of wildlife, culture and stunning landscapes.
Embarking from Scotland, you will follow in the footsteps of Vikings and Gaels through some of the most remote islands of the North Atlantic. Explore the history and culture of Scotland as you visit quaint seaside towns and the occasional fishing village in amongst the harsh lands fringed by dramatic coastlines.
You will pass through the Outer Hebrides, the UK’s most remote islands, before arriving at the Faroe Islands – some of the most remote inhabited islands in the world.
Dominated by steep mountains, sheep and the world’s largest colony of storm petrels, in the Faroe Islands you will be greeted by rolling green hills and grass covered roofs. Natural beauty is what the Faroe Islands do best.
You complete your voyage in Iceland… home to ice covered volcanoes, immense glaciers and geothermal lagoons. A stark, volcanic land with a warm heart, Iceland’s shallow fjords are a haven for whales, dolphins and seals alike and there is a surprising array of wildlife.
Each day on the journey you will be able to explore off the ship in the company of expert guides, cruising in the Zodiacs and enjoying walks on shore.
You will be travelling on the RCGS Resolute – a small and spacious expedition cruise ship that offers an intimate and personal experience. Cabins are modern, well-designed and generous in size… all with views of the magnificent scenery outside.
For those who want to continue their exploration of Iceland, we will also be offering an onward escorted itinerary.
Group travel planning
Small group tours with friends can be difficult to plan… what you thought was a good idea to travel with friends looks like becoming a 12-month saga by the time you try and cater for everyone’s unique interests.
We can help.
We use our travel planning process to understand what each traveller wants from their group travel experience… and then we create an itinerary so unique that when you arrive home you will all feel like the holiday was made for you. And that’s because it was.
We tailor every experience to the individual traveller, no matter whether you are travelling solo or on a group travel adventure.
The secret lies in the depth of our local knowledge… the small group tours we plan go beyond the tourist trail to take you to the hidden gems of a destination.
It’s how we travel ourselves and how we’ve helped more than 1,000 travellers experience journeys of a lifetime.
“We were travelling in a group of four. Rose organised the trip for everyone. We all told her what we were interested in and she went from there. Everyone has different tastes and it’s a matter of talking it through. We felt very much at ease with Rose and confident that she would be able to plan a wonderful group tour for us… and she certainly delivered.”
Our group travel consultants would be delighted to help you and your group plan a holiday you will never forget. Contact us to book a consultation.
