Private Excursions & Private Touring 

Private Tours for Two, a Few or a Whole Crew

A special interest you'd like to pursue? Want to spend more time at a particular attraction than what is included on a regular, join-in tour? Trace your family tree? Want the exclusivity of a tour just for you and your friends? A Handpicked Private Tour is for you.

Half or Full Day Tours

City or regional sightseeing at your pace. Visit only those attractions which you enjoy. Devote a whole day to your special interest. We offer private half or full day tours in and around most capital cities and major towns in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Private Shore Excursions

We can arrange private shore excursions from most European cruise ports, especially for those who want a more personal experience ashore than the large coach tours organised by cruise lines.

Accommodated Tours with Private Driver/Guide

Handpicked Holidays can arrange tours with your own driver/guide that follows your own itinerary, staying at accommodation that suits your preferred style and budget from B&BS to 5-star hotels. Special character accommodation such as castles, manor houses, cave houses and friendly country inns can be included depending on the destination.

Private Group Tours for 4 to 40

Handpicked Holidays can design, create and operate a private group tour to suit your group’s needs to the UK, Ireland, Europe and Turkey.

Tell us what you want and when you want to go there. We will pass a professional eye over your rough itinerary, add a suggestion here or there, check the local opening and closing times, driving distances and legal driving hours, to make sure it ‘works’!

Charter a Tour or Cruise for Your Group

Have you seen an escorted coach tour or cruise which you'd like to operate exclusively for your group? Call us to discuss your needs. You can either charter an existing cruise or coach itinerary, or create your own - with exclusive use of the minivan, coach or cruiser.
