60 The ALLURE of Rallies & Tours I n t e r n a t i o n a l t o u r s Escorted Group Tours: There are up to 20 cars on a group tour, small groups so everyone can meet, chat and get to know each other. We also stay in some beautiful hotels often smaller, country house hotels, etc. Each car has a route book, which has detailed written directions, route maps, hotel information, rec- ommended places for coffee/lunch, and everything there is to do, see and visit each day. Classic Travelling also provides road atlases and pre-loaded Garmin GPS. There is no convoy driving or any competition. You are free to drive at your own pace, stop- ping when you like to see and do what appeals to you. Classic Travelling organizes the Tour, not you, so you are able to just en- joy your car and your driving. Dinners are included on most, but not all evenings, including wine. Classic Travelling also plans to include other events such as wine tasting, concerts, private col- lection tours, etc. Independent Tours: All our tour books are available to pur- chase to allow you to enjoy a driving holiday independently, without the hassle and guesswork of organizing. Just use the information we provide to book the hotels (all with suitable parking), and enjoy our routes knowing you’re going to be driving fabulous roads through beautiful scenery, staying in some glori- ous places. *There are numerous tours and schedules offered.
