What is a “Transfer Tour”?

A transfer tour combines a full day of sightseeing with your transfer between two hotels and two cities or regions on your holiday. Rather than simply catching the train to your next city on your holiday itinerary, you’ll be able to enjoy a full day sightseeing with an experienced local driver-guide, visiting the amazing locations and exploring the stunning scenery that lies between the two destinations on your trip. It’s a great way to invest in an extra day of touring, rather than simply having a ‘travel day’ where you just check out of one hotel, catch a train and check in again at another hotel.
