Our Walk & Discover holidays are a blend of the classic Riviera Travel tours you’ve come to love, thoughtfully balanced with eye-opening walks accompanied by specialist guides to enrich your holiday. Ramble through enchanting countryside home to natural wonders, see the cultural and artistic highlights of historic towns and villages, and take a route less travelled for a different – and sometimes more fascinating – viewpoint. On most of our walks there are easy and moderate options, so you can decide on the day if you’d rather take it easy or go a little further. Should you wish to put your feet up in your hotel or explore independently, it’s your choice to make.

Throughout your Walk & Discover holiday, you’ll be accompanied by an experienced tour manager, who works tirelessly to oversee every single detail, offers insights into local life, and lends a hand when needed – nothing is too much trouble for these seasoned travellers. Every walk is led by an accredited local professional with intimate knowledge of the route, so you’ll really feel the heartbeat of the destination.
Every itinerary has been thoughtfully crafted by our experts and provides fascinating perspectives on the culture, history, gastronomy, art and architecture of the places we visit. And much like a well-told story, every detail is carefully considered, from the stops we make to the routes we take. We ensure there’s ample free time, so you can continue exploring at your own pace. Our experts were chosen not only for their wealth of knowledge, but also their flair for engaging audiences. It’s like travelling with a friend who knows the secrets of every destination.
Perhaps our most distinguishing feature is the care we show our customers. We’re a friendly team who are passionate about travel and genuinely care about making your holiday the best it can be. We make every effort to get to know you by name and your preferences by heart. We listen and take on board your feedback for future improvements. And if anything does go wrong, we promise to put it right. After all, we would love for you to come back again – as most of our customers do.

Most of our walks are guided by accredited local professionals, who have intimate knowledge of the routes and can offer meaningful information about the history and nature of the area.
Our Walk & Discover holidays are designed to appeal to anyone who would typically enjoy an escorted tour but would like to incorporate a little more activity. There is almost always a choice of an easy or moderate option. While a reasonable level of fitness is recommended, the easy walk should suit most travellers. Please refer to the itinerary online or request our new brochure for detailed information about each walk. We do our best to ensure this information is as accurate as possible, based on input from our local guides.
On each walk we prefer an intimate atmosphere, so you can expect around 12 to 18 people. Depending on the nature of the walk, the group may occasionally be slightly larger. The wider group size will be around 40 people, mainly during coach transfers.
Good quality walking shoes or boots are a must. We also recommend a waterproof jacket, comfortable rucksack, hat, sunglasses, sun cream, water bottle and clothes that can be layered easily. Hiking poles are not necessary, but you may wish to take them.
While we will always try to adhere to the route as advertised, we may be required to modify the itinerary due to local conditions. Our guides may also make minor changes to tailor the walk to the group.
