Welcome to the Curious Traveler! Join us on our intimate tours, created for your inspiration and appreciation.

Sign Up NOW! 2017 Tour of the Lake District Idyll
May 15 - May 23, 2017

If you missed our very special tour of the English Lake District in 2012, here is your chance to visit this most beautiful corner of England, the inspiration for artists like Wordsworth, Ruskin. William Morris and the home of Beatrix Potter.  When she died, BP endowed the National Trust with her property and wealth.  Here is your chance to enjoy this stunning scenery with its outstanding gardens and to dine in the homes of local garden lovers and to admire their gardens and exchange ideas with them.

There is also the opportunity to extend your visit and to include a day in London at the Chelsea Flower Show but we need your commitment and deposit as soon as possible as tickets are almost all gone.

Tartan Golf Tour - Choose your Dates!

Join Andria and her brother Dick Neal, himself an experienced golfer, on their latest venture.  The Tartan Golf Tour.  A tour of his favourite North Scotland courses that mixes championship with club courses, two inland and four by the sea.  The two charming hotels where we stay are in towns that are full of local character. 
If you have a group who would like to travel together on this tour call us and let us arrange it for you. Or if you prefer, join a group of golfers.  All players should have handicap of under 20 for men and 30 for ladies.  For non-golfers we are happy to arrange visits to the local gardens, castles, distilleries and historic sites.  Please contact us and be prepared for a memorable and thoroughly enjoyable week of golf.

If you like to travel at a leisurely pace that allows you time to contemplate and enjoy your surroundings then our exclusive tours are for you.  We travel in a small group of about a dozen guests.  We travel by private mini coach and use the same vehicle and driver, Keith, for the duration of the tour enabling guests to settle in and be comfortable while Keith takes care of your comfort and safety. 

Our tours are designed to give you a deeper appreciation of life in Britain.  We offer you the opportunity to meet a variety of local people with whom you share interests in common such as horticulture, golf, majestic castles, stately homes and a love of food and wine. 

The hotels we patronize are all exceedingly comfortable with a distinctly British flavour.  Each hotel is personally selected by Andria and offers friendly and efficient service, all creature comforts and, above all, excellent restaurants. 

It is our objective that your trip proves memorable and serves as a time filled with new experiences and laughter.  We want you to return completely relaxed with a true feeling for the history of the country you have visited and with new friends with whom you share interests in common.

Our CUSTOM TOUR SERVICE invites you to ask Andria to prepare for you or even accompany  you on a private tour tailored to your own special dates, requests and wish lists.  Find out more about these special trips.
