Introducing Albatross Tours

We love Albatross Tours.  They are an Australian based company, designing European tours for the Australian and New Zealand market.

They offer group travel at a sensible pace.  Lets face it, its a long way for us to travel and it costs a fair amount so the last thing us Antipodeans want is to spend one or two nights in a hotel before packing up and getting to the next one.  After 10-14 days we struggle to remember where we’ve been and what we’ve seen.

We always encourage people to spend quality time at a destination over quantity of destinations.  Albatross follow the same philosophy.

They also specialize in the European Christmas markets.  There is still availability on some of their 2018 tours.

Check out their website for more information or go the old fashioned way and pop in for a brochure.

There are still earlybirds on offer for their summer 2019 tours, valid til the end of October.

Roam with Searle Travel


Suddenly we are halfway through the year and with winter upon us there is no better time to  grab a coffee and see what tempts you.

We are delighted to attach our very first issue of ROAM.  Packed with inspirational itineraries such as rail holidays of Scotland, group tours of Morocco and expedition cruises of Alaskan Fjords and Glaciers.  So many options, but my choice would be 15 days of tailor-made adventures in Sri Lanka, one of our fastest growing destinations.
