For those who prefer the companionship of travelling with a group, as well as the benefit of having an experienced tour director and a driver, Bridge & Wickers offers a full programme of escorted tours in most of our destinations. We use the very best local companies and have a choice of itineraries, with vehicles ranging from conventional luxury coaches to mini coaches carrying no more than 16 passengers in fully-reclining seating.
In addition to complete itineraries, you’ll find our website full of ideas for short tours at particular locations, one where an accompanying guide is almost essential to help you get the most out of a destination, offering everything from the historical background to a particular place to where you can find the nearest, nicest lavatory.
Australia If you prefer to leave the driving to someone else and travel in the company of others, we offer a number of top quality guided tours. Some are complete holidays in themselves, often in small groups, but we also have a selection of shorter guided trips to places where the overall experience can be considerably enhanced by travelling with an expert. We can also arrange a number of cruises on board luxurious expedition ship such as Orion where shore excursions are always accompanied by experts.
New Zealand For those who prefer the companionship of travelling with a group, as well as the benefit of having an experienced tour director and a driver, we offer a selection of the finest, fully-escorted tours, graded by pace (relaxed, medium, active), of varying length (from 8 days to 26 days), and with several activities and excursions included in the price, such as a cruise of the Milford Sound, a jet boat ride and scenic train journeys.
Canada As well as travelling by coach, leaving the driving and day to day logistics to someone else, our selection of escorted tours, with the choice of several different itineraries, includes several journeys by train. We also offer some spectacular cruises along the Inside Passage, following the western seaboard of Canada as far as Alaska.
