Jules Verne

Jules Verne is one of our specialist sister brands, offering authentic small group escorted tours with a twist. Established in 1978, a sense of adventure to discover the world is at the heart of what they do. Jules Verne’s innovative tours are packed with special touches and led by local expert guides who will show you the true character of each destination.

Whether your chosen destination is far-flung or closer to home, choose from relaxing small-ship cruises, memorable rail experiences, grand tours, great journeys and classic itineraries, all created with a particular focus on history, art and culture or wildlife. To enhance the experience of Jules Verne travellers, exclusive special events are included, illuminating the country and people you are visiting. You might attend a special ceremony, performance, meal or drinks party at spectacular locations; learn about cooking and the local way of life; or discover less-visited corners or special places not normally open to the public.

Jules Verne offers no single supplement on a range of destinations and dates; alternatively, you can join a solo group departure comprised only of single travellers and accompanied by a UK or local tour manager. Early booking is recommended and it’s never too early to book with Jules Verne’s 100% Price Guarantee, meaning your tour price is fixed when you book and you won’t ever pay more, even if their costs increase afterwards.


The team’s wealth of knowledge and experience means they can create inspirational journeys and add an extra level of insight to your touring holiday.
