GETTING HERE

Trains, Planes And Automobiles

As our clients come from all over the globe with different arrival points we try and make the tour start and end points easily accessible by using international airports, bus, and train stations.

Some of our guided tours include pickups and drop offs to and from the nearest transport hubs. Don´t hesitate to ask if you have specific questions about traveling from abroad or big city destinations like London, Lisbon, Madrid or Barcelona to tour starts.

Home & Away
Pack your bags and come with us!

Getting Here to Spain, Portugal or England has never been easier or cheaper with a choice of no- frills flights to all our tour starting locations. We can organize transfers to and from the arrival and departure points, and can advise you on any travel arrangements whether coming from North America, UK & Ireland, or elsewhere in the world.

We can’t say enough good things of the time you spent pointing out the local history to us from the beginning of Columbus’ expedition to the 2 BC Roman bridge.
