Tailor Made Itineraries 

UK, Ireland & Europe Your Way

Only you know what your ideal trip should include. Whether you want to concentrate on culture or spend time pursuing a special interest, sample a city’s hustle and bustle or explore the country lanes and cobblestoned villages – or a mix of all of the above.

Travel a la Carte

The best thing about tailor-made travel is that your complete trip can be designed around your interests and budget, so you can explore at your own pace and select accommodation that suits you, with Handpicked Holidays’ specialist knowledge at your disposal to perfect your travel plans.

Unless you take a fully-escorted tour from home, typically a holiday to UK, Ireland & Europe comprises a mix of travel components. Independent city packages including accommodation and local sightseeing tours and transfers - Escorted tour – Cruise - Self-drive or tour by rail with accommodation.

Organised Independence - Tailor-Made the Handpicked Way

Creating your own unique holiday in the UK, Ireland and Europe by assembling a variety of travel options is akin to assembling a huge jigsaw puzzle and bound to take up much more of your time than you anticipate! Combining all of these components successfully is what we call "Organised Independence" - you get to spend your days as you wish, secure in the knowledge that your holiday has been planned by an expert who has been there and done that.

Here’s how Handpicked Holidays can take the hassle out of planning your holiday

We will ask for your travel wishlist – your ‘must-see’s or do’s' – then plan your holiday depending on the time you have available to travel, your sightseeing requirements, the comfort level of accommodation you require, any transport preference and importantly, your budget. Maybe you’ve seen a tour which you’d like to extend, or one you’d prefer to do independently rather than with a group.

An Itinerary That Works

Once we have this basic information, we will create an itinerary that ‘works’, suggesting the quickest connections or most logical routing that will save you time. We'll ensure that the tour or cruise dates you've chosen are compatible and recommend some 'don't miss' favourite places of our own.
