Just returned from India & Shimla solo travellers trip. A fantastic time was had by all, we did so much in 2 weeks. Thank you to Riviera for your great organisation and always there to help if needed. Special thanks to Matt our tour guide for all the laughs, information on the places we were seeing, keeping us all in check (if he could ha ha) and his great organisation and compasion if needed. I would greatly recommend Rivera Travel and cannot wait for my next trip with them in September to the Kerala Backwaters. Keep up the good work all.

Just recently been on the Sicily Tour (Booked via Travel Stop, Hadleigh). The experience was awesome. Ruth the tour guide was amazing. The depth of knowledge Ruth displayed was wonderful. The coach driver Germano also was tremendous driving the coach on the local roads.
You are indeed fortunate to have such an employee as Ruth.

My Classical Spain trip with Riviera Travel was excellent , our guide Christine was superb looking after her clients like a mother hen, highly recommend this tour.
(nearly spoilt by Easy Jet 6 hour delay), I must praise your staff in dealing with this in a very quick and professional way . now looking forward to my Medieval Germany river cruise in June.

Stride Review

In the travel business since 1984, UK-based Riviera Travel started as a small agency running bus trips to France, and has grown to become ones of Britain’s largest purveyors of overseas guided tours, offering packaged land tours and river cruises in many parts of the world.  

What Makes Them Stand Out? 

With the motto “passionate about travel,” Riviera sets a high bar for itself, but its comprehensive attention to detail seems to back up the claim.  

Who Travels With Them?

Their clientele are mostly British aged 60-plus who prefer taking guided tours to traveling on their own, and who seek good value for the money. 

Where Do They Operate?

Riviera Travel runs guided tours of Europe, North and South America, Central America and the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, India, Australia, New Zealand, and southern and northern Africa. River cruises in Europe and Asia are one of their specialties. 

How Does It Work?

Riviera does all the work. All you have to do is show up. But if at some points in the tour you want to do some exploring on your own, that’s fine, too. 

Why Travel With Them? 

Riviera Travel oversees every aspect of their tours, personally picking the local guides, the lodgings, the dining experiences, and the attractions to visit. They train their tour managers rigorously and pride themselves on getting the logistical details right. And they never add surcharges or hidden fees to the prices, which are all-inclusive. The prices don’t change no matter when you book.
