Touring Explained

Touring Holidays

Tours are a great way to discover and learn about a destination. Using the expertise of your local English-speaking guide, you will benefit from informative and enriching information about the destination, culture and spectacular sights that may not be readily available when travelling independently. Not only do you get the chance to get off the beaten track, you may well also have the opportunity to develop long-standing friendships with like-minded travellers.

Types of Tours

Tigers in India

At Virgin Holidays we have two types of tours available to our guests. Firstly we have ‘seat-in-coach’ tours. These are operated by our local agents and are set itineraries for English speaking guests. These tours are available to other companies, as well as Virgin Holidays, and are often a great introduction to a destination, ticking off the ‘must-sees’. They are usually based on a minimum of 2 passengers, so are guaranteed to travel and work out a great value option. Secondly we have our 'Exclusive' tours, designed by the expert team at Virgin Holidays with our local agents; and using real customer feedback to evolve them and ensure they're perfect. They are only available to Virgin Holidays customers to a maximum group size of 25.

What's included?

Beach sunset

It's difficult to list our inclusions for all tours as they are all so different around the world. What you can be sure of is that we work closely with our local agents and expertly choose and design the tours specifically for our guests. Throughout our program, we guarantee a superior service from our local agents and our guides. We ensure we have selected the outstanding sights, the best hotels in the right locations, and the correct transport for you; be it a safari vehicle, an air-conditioned coach or a business class seat on the bullet train. Let us be the experts and lead the way.


Tea picking

There is no denying it, touring can get crazy. Most itineraries involve several destinations and lots of walking, with maybe some early mornings and long days... but we guarantee that it's worth the effort. What's an early morning if you can see the Taj Mahal at sunrise? Is a walk too much if it'd along the Great Wall of China? No way. We guarantee the all that hard work pays off and we know you deserve some well-deserved R&R afterwards. We have great extension options for each tour, usually due to flight routes or distances from the end of the tour, so just ask us and we'll make it easy for you with our expert recommendations.
