Join us this Fall on a European Adventure

Go on, you deserve it.

We just have a few places left on our small group tours to Europe this fall. Our groups are small enough for you to know everyone but also feel like you’re exploring a destination independently. We love our small groups because they fall below the typical tourist radar; we can visit local restaurants, view sights and tour cities without being a crowd. We meet local people without being overwhelming so we are always welcomed and this all adds to the small group experience. Never worry though, an experienced tour director is with you every step of the way to ease your journey and take care of all of the tickets, the schedule, and even the tips. Travel today can often be frustrating but a small group tour with Olde Ipswich Tours takes you back to a bygone age. Group size will vary  for each tour but our average group size is about 10, which we’ve found is a perfect number to let you connect without feeling like you’re just a face in a crowd. Click on each of the images to get more information on these wonderful journeys.
