    We have taken great care to develop a tour that offers you the full pleasures of the enchanting Tuscan countryside as well as visits to a delightful collection of small villages and towns. We travel through vineyards, past olive groves, and along narrow ancient roads lined with cypress. We wander the narrow alleyways of tiny medieval villages like Murlo, Montisi, and Castlemuzio; listen as the monks chant at Sant’Antimo; relive movie scenes from “The English Patient” as we stroll the grounds of Santa Anna in Caprena; delight in a visit to the elegant Castello Banfi Estate and vineyards; and spoil ourselves on our last night at the 5-star spa hotel, Fonteverde.

  • “Where the Highlands meet the Lowlands, and they both meet the sea.” That’s where we go on our cycling tour of Scotland, immersed in some of the grandest scenery in the British Isles and treated to the essence of all things Scottish: romantic castles guarding their domain; luxurious palace homes of dukes and barons; deep wandering lochs and soft wooded glens; and lovely winding roads where we are often the only travelers. We visit ancient villages, tour whisky distilleries, and shop for crafts, antiques, and woolens.
  • The wide and beautiful Hudson River carves through mountains and promontories, past gorgeous pastures and fields, and small riverside villages, views and vistas that inspired the Hudson River School artists more than a century ago. Quiet country roads twist and turn through woods, past wineries, exquisite horse farms, and rolling fields supporting apple orchards. These are the views and the rural paradise that brought the Gilded Age millionaires to the area and where they proceeded to lavish millions creating magnificent estates along the banks of the river. Our new bike tour immerses you in all this.
