European Escorted Tours

Many people enjoy escorted tours because they can relax knowing that the itinerary has been carefully planned by travel experts, and that there's a tour manager on hand to makes sure that the holiday runs smoothly from start to finish.

Here at Shearings, we have over 100 years' experience in planning holidays. And we recently won Best Large Coach Holiday Company in the 2013 British Travel Awards. So it's fair to say that we know our stuff when it comes to escorted touring. Our travel experts work hard to put together escorted tours that showcase the very best of Europe - from the beautiful scenery of Switzerland, to the beaches of Spain and the historic Monuments of Eastern Europe.

Choose your perfect European escorted tour below. Or, see our full range of escorted tours, which includes UK tours and worldwide tours of faraway places.
