Coach tours give us a sense of freedom that’s difficult to capture with any other form of travel. You get all the adventure of the open road without the hassle of having to drive yourself. Just recline with a good book or a movie and see exciting new landscapes unfurl around you.
And it’s the landscapes over here in Europe that makes coach travel extra special. Not only do we have some of the world’s most iconic cultural landmarks, but to get there you’ll pass through countryside so memorable that you’ll wonder why you ever considered flying.
This week, we’re focusing in on some of the best trips by coach both in the UK and further afield. Have a look at these unforgettable coach tours in Europe.
