Travelling the clever way
We offer escorted motorhome tours to selected destinations in Europe. Travel with us to the most picturesque parts of Europe and experience an unforgettable european dream holiday. We will see to it that you can enjoy beautiful cities and stunning countryside and even take part in particular events, worry free and without the effort of any planning.
Our escorted tours combine the freedom of a motorhome holiday with the advantages of a planned tour. You will be accompanied from the beginning to the end of the trip by multi lingual tour guides who know the region you will be travelling to.
We have always enjoyed the independence of motorhome travel, allowing us to stay on the shores of lakes, on river banks, in the mountains, at the coast or in the middle of nowhere, and also at unconventional places like farms, vineyards, harbours or lighthouses. We have loved the flexibility of just going where the mood takes us, but sometimes have regretted not having booked a special event prior to our trip. This is why for you we organize and book selected highlights well in advance while giving you the freedom and independence to enjoy motorhome travel.
We know our routes and have tried them all. This means we can give you advice every day on the well-known sights, but can also give you tips on not so well known attractions. Many of these hidden gems we know as a result of having lived in Germany, the UK, France and Spain. We not only speak the languages, but also know the countries, the people and their cultures.
With our support and use of the road book we have prepared for you containing lots of suggestions and sight seeing ideas, you have the freedom and independence to choose each day how much or how little you want to do and see.
Discover on the following pages our range of very different tours. From “Springtime in Holland” to "Europe's Best Christmas Markets” – there is a tour to suit everyone.
Why travel with us
Accompanied but flexible motorhome tours
We will be with you for the whole tour. We reserve the overnight stops and specific highlights well in advance. We plan the itinerary, provide you with a road book and maps and give tips and suggestions for excursions. We also book 1 to 2 group highlights. You are free to plan your days with the reassurance of a competent travel guide while travelling in the safety of a group.
With the optional pick-up service, we will travel with you once you have crossed the channel. We would book the ferry crossings and additional nights at campsites, if necessary to get to the tour region. Find out more..

View Flyer "Overview Tour Dates and Prices - Touring season 2018"
We know the cultures, the people and the customs and speak the language
We travel in a group of max. 12 motorhomes, so you can enjoy being part of a small group of people who share the same interests
This allows us to be more flexible where we spend the night e.g. at a vineyard or other scenic places
We have travelled with motorhomes over 100,000 km across Europe
Who we are
After almost 30 years in a suit and tie and after hundreds of thousands of frequent flyer miles made on business, we decided it was time for us to choose our own destination and took the decision to turn our hobby into our profession. We want to share our passion for motorhome travel, for foreign cultures and other peoples.
Michael is German and grew up near Frankfurt in Germany. Audrey is English and grew up north of London. We met in 1984 while studying at University in Sheffield. After graduating we first moved to Germany. Michael’s career then took us around the world sparking our interest in travel and other cultures. We lived in France for three years, in Spain for four years and then spent three years in the US. During this time we went on camping holidays with the children travelling at first with a tent and then with a caravan and in the US with rented motorhomes.
We moved back to Germany in 1998 and bought our first motorhome in 2004. Since then we have travelled extensively through many European countries. These include our home countries, the UK and Germany, as well as France, Spain, Italy, Sicily, Luxemburg, Belgium, Holland, Greece, Denmark, Croatia, Portugal, Ireland, Austria, and Switzerland.
