Wonderful "off the beaten path" places - without the
headaches of independent travel.....
At Heritage tours we've proven that small groups (8 - 20 guests) and excellent value are a great mix along with our out of the way experiences. Since we create and operate our own trips, these are unique travel experiences. Most of the things we show our small groups will not be found with any other travel trips. We work closely with our many friends and associates, with whom we have long standing relationships. Most of these folk artists and everyday local people only work with us at Heritage Tours. We excel at giving our guests the best European experiences, multi night stays in one place away from the hordes of tourists. Most other tours have a series of one-night stays in places far apart. Those other tours rush through countries, and vast area's, most of what you see is from a bus window. When you return home from that type of tour - you will remember very little but the bugs on your bus window.
Most of my competitors have no real interest in this part of Europe - except to take your money for a trip. You don't see them at any educational events or trying to learn more about where they take you.
Mark has a well known passion for Central Europe. NEW see my reading list !
Mark has attended many different educational Conferences,
seminars and workshops. Helping help plan and organize these events as
well. I have written many informative articles, and have been a
volunteer consultant and resource person to many groups and
organizations. All of us at Heritage Tours adore the culture, people and
heritage of central Europe, and our tours show this passion. The people
leading your tours should have this interest in where they are going,
anyone can cash a check from you.
We at Heritage Tours offer a in-depth travel experience, basically free of stress. We go over the entire tour route in advance to check on everything for you. We eat at the best local restaurants, visit exquisite local folk crafter's, and see historic sites almost by ourselves. When you return home you will cherish and remember a great amount of wonderful memories which cannot be found on any other tour.
