Compromise Tours

Compromise Tours

We have a very clear bespoke philosophy, explained here which fully outlines our commitment to you when planning your trip to experience the outstanding and varied delights of France and Belgium. Compromise, the thing that we all do, sharing each other's hobbies, mostly but not always through a shared interest, going shopping when we would rather be playing golf, visiting battlefields when we would rather be drinking champagne or visiting the personalised perfume shops of Paris, we all do it to some extent or another and if you don't you're either very lucky or single. Well, we think we have the answer, The Compromise Tour, you can experience as many or as few of your activities during the day but always be together over a beautiful dinner to share your day's experiences. The options are limitless with you both having a personal tour guide to ensure you gain the most from your break, World War 1 battlefields, Paris, Theme parks, touring the Champagne region, Golf, mountain biking, Bruges are just a few of the options that are available to you. Remember, this is your Compromise tour, so why don't you tell us what you want to do and we will create with you your perfect break.
