Our “Beautiful Britain & Europe”, 2019 brochure and web site are packed with a series of tours, plus ideas for independent travel, throughout Britain, Ireland and continental Europe. In addition we are proud to be Canadian agents for the unique and eclectic Back Roads Touring Company and you can browse all the Back Roads itineraries clicking here . Plus, we have a separate brochure we will send you on request. In 2019 Back Roads will officially change their name in Canada and the USA to “Blue Roads Touring Company” but all the tours in Europe and Asia will remain exactly the same and still carry the Back Roads name.

British Airways remains our preferred airline to the U.K. but Air Canada, Air Transat & West Jet all have flights from various Canadian cities direct to London's Heathrow or Gatwick airports. Air Canada and Air Transat also have direct flights to Paris and other European cities (tip: if you are thinking of visiting London and Paris, fly into one and out of the other). Other international airlines also have direct flights to their own countries.

On some of our tours we book group rates on BA or AC and we will always offer their current seat sales, if available, when you book.

Current price examples Toronto London return:
(fares include approx. $600 of air taxes and fees)

  • • BA & AC's current published prices range from $800 in the winter months to $1,520 in summer. Seat sales will reduce these prices by $150 - 250
  • • Air Transat & WestJet, (into Gatwick) are usually priced $200- 300 less
  • • BA offers it's World Traveller Plus service for approx $600-$700 more
  • • Air Transat offers a "Club" class upgrade for approx. $500 more


Once a deposit is made on a tour at a given price, DHTour will guarantee that price. This means we will happily will absorb any increase or refund any decrease in your tour's price if it changes prior to your departure - no fine print!
Thank you so much for putting together such a great tour. The Tavistock Hotel was perfectly situated, clean and everyone was very helpful and friendly. Bloomsbury is a safe and pleasant area in which to stay. Rooms were warm; the shower worked well and breakfast was more than adequate. The travel card was a great bonus. The selection of restaurants was excellent. The extra tour to Stonehenge, Bath and Salisbury was interesting and easy to do. We really enjoyed our time in London and hope to make it an annual trip! You can never see enough of London.

Just a note to let you know how pleased we were with our DH Tour to London. The service on B.A. was excellent. The Tavistock Hotel was very satisfactory, centrally located and the London transportation passes were very useful, as was the information you sent us beforehand. Best of all was the service of our guide Gail. She was most informative and helpful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you.
