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.
