Independent vs. Group: the tour for me

At Tempo, we want to create the holiday that you have been dreaming of, whether it is a tailor-made independent tour or a ready-made group itinerary. Read more...

At Tempo, we offer both classic group tours and independent, tailor-made itineraries that will bring your dream holiday to life. We are committed to helping you achieve your travel ambitions, whatever that entails. But with so many different packages on offer, we can see that you might be confused as to what will suit your travel style best. Here, we hope to clarify for you the benefits of our different types of packages.

Tailor-Make your dream holiday

If you'd like an authentic local experience at your own pace but don't want the stress of organising transport and accommodation, then consider doing one of our independent tours. We can tweak any of our brochure itineraries to suit your needs so that you can experience something different on your holiday. Or, we can completely tailor-make your holiday! Use one of our itineraries (or anyone else's) as inspiration and we can bring your dream holiday to life, through an itinerary tailored exactly to your needs.

At Tempo, we pride ourselves on being the tailor-made specialists and being able to create a wonderful escape for you with the help of our international partners and local friends. On our tailor-made holidays, you can extend a stopover to make the most of a weekend; switch a hotel room for an apartment to accommodate your family; add on a side-trip to see something stunning; splash-out on a little luxury to celebrate an anniversary or maybe include an excursion to visit old friends. Just sketch out your perfect adventure and let our destination specialists turn that into the holiday of a lifetime.
With the flexibility to adapt to your needs, your journey should be hiccup-free with our on-ground support without missing out on that element of adventure.

Taste of Sorrento and Amalfi tour

italy_tasteofsorrentoamalfi_600x450One of our popular independent tours is the Taste of Sorrento and Amalfi tour. This five day tour begins in Naples and travels down by private transfer to the Southern coast of Italy via Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi, Positano and then back up to Naples. We will organise four nights accommodation in your choice of hotel category and there are many optional excursions to add on to enjoy this breathtaking part of the world. And of course, if you decide you'd like to spend longer relaxing by the Mediterranean on the gorgeous Amalfi Coast or spend the night on Capri and visit the stunning Blue Grotto, we can arrange this – the only limit is your imagination!

This is just one option - we have destination partners throughout India and the Sub Continent, Central and Mediterranean Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Northern Africa, the UK and Ireland and would love to plan your next holiday.

Group travel in comfort and convenience

We also offer a huge variety of fabulous ready-made group tours. On these tours, you will travel with a set itinerary and your day's activities are organised for you – after all, who wants to worry about what's next while they are on holidays? We work closely with our destination partners and local friends to craft itineraries that will show you the best a destination has to offer and allow you to create lasting memories. These packages generally include all your transport costs, an experienced guide, some meals, a sightseeing itinerary and entrance fees to various sites. Plus the opportunity to travel, sightsee and make friends with likeminded people in your group.

When you choose a ready-made group holiday from our brochures, you can be confident that we have crafted the holiday with all our experience, expertise and travel insight. And if one of these tours doesn't suit your dates, we can find you a group tour that does so that you can still experience the comfort and convenience of a ready-made holiday.

Small group travel

Our small group packages are ideal for the time-poor traveller who wants to see the best of an area without sacrificing their need to go beyond the well-travelled tourist sites. You can focus on engaging all of your senses in a brilliant new environment, off the beaten track, and learning all there is to know about the culture and history of an exciting destination.

When you choose one of our small group tours, you are choosing to be a traveller and not a tourist, going beyond the well-travelled tourist paths to areas inaccessible to larger groups. Enjoy homemade scones with a WWII survivor on the island of Guernsey as you travel from London to Paris; stay in authentic boutique accommodation; or personally visit the grave of a relative who fought in a war on a Battlefield Weekend package. Travelling with Tempo on one of the (or one of our many other small group) tours below, you can be confident that we have crafted your holiday with all of our experience, expertise and travel insights so you have the best experience for the best value.

Emerald Tour

italy_emeraldtour_600x450One of our most popular group tours is the Emerald Tour in Italy, a five day tour from Rome down to the Amalfi coast and then back up to Rome. On this tour, guests will be moved to silence by the incredible remains of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, fossilised after the 79AD eruption of Mt Vesuvius. They will be charmed by the beautiful coastal village of Amalfi, they can take a dip from a private beach into the Mediterranean, and create many more wonderful memories under the guidance of our destination partners.

We have many more group tours available all over the world, so to experience the best of India and the Sub Continent, Central and Mediterranean Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Northern Africa, the UK and Ireland, rely on our expertise in our carefully crafted itineraries.

We create every Tempo holiday to be the best experience and the best value for money possible, so if you do find the same trip from another company at a lower price, we guarantee we will match it. Download a brochures or contact one of our agents today to find out more.
