Choices for Your Group

Any group of 10 or more people travelling together can book through our dedicated Groups Department. If you’re a larger group, we can look at tailoring an itinerary to suit your own requirements or operate our current itineraries as a private one for your members only. Smaller groups can travel together on any of our regular tours with other like-minded Riviera guests.

For 2022 we will respect all social distancing guidelines that are in place at the time of travel in both the UK and the chosen destination.
All our customers pay the same price but when you book as a group of 10 or more through our dedicated groups department, you will also receive money back after you’ve travelled, as a thank you from us and to share or use as you wish. See our Group terms and conditions here.

Whatever you decide, whether to travel by air or Eurostar, on a touring holiday or single/multi-centred break, all of our tours are fully escorted throughout by an experienced Riviera Travel Tour Manager, and with deposits starting as low as £50pp, there has never been a better time to book a group holiday!

Testimonials from Group Holidays with Riviera Travel

"Well, I know I speak on behalf of the rest of our group when I say what a thoroughly great time we had in Bruges.  We are all totally delighted with Riviera Travel and will definitely be using you again. Our tour manager was Kay and she was brilliant. So knowledgeable and informative as well as being good fun. A real asset to your company. Sadly, one of our group was unable to go because of illness but she told me you were so helpful when she contacted you. We felt that the excursions were very well organised and enjoyable without “taking over” the holiday."

C.Whyte, Inner Wheel Club of Wolverton

"I would just like to pass on our group’s thanks to all involved in making our break a very memorable one. Everyone had a fabulous time in Paris, the weather was very kind and Andy, our Tour Guide was superb! He was very knowledgeable and went just that little bit further to make sure everyone was happy and knew where they were going.  He is certainly a fabulous ambassador for Riviera Travel! I must add that the arranged tours were brilliant, especially ‘Paris by Night’. Andy gave a great running commentary on all the tours – he’s like a walking encyclopaedia!! 
Well done Riviera Travel !! Many, many thanks again"

H. Saunders, Ringway Circle, Catenians

“We have had a wonderful holiday on our recent  Blue Danube Cruise. The ship was very well appointed, comfortable and would say quite luxurious.The food was excellent, with a very good choice. All the staff were so welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. The cruise manager Leslie was absolutely great, very funny, very well organised, and super-efficient, again nothing was too much trouble for him, one of the best. All in all a wonderful holiday. Would certainly recommend it. We are already thinking about the next one, so thanks to all at Riviera.”
