France. It's not just Paris
You certainly can’t go wrong with a wonderful trip to France, Spain, Portugal or Morocco. These glorious countries have some of the most amazing sun drenched and fabulous places to explore in the world and are certainly seen as top destinations to go and visit.
In France, Paris is the obvious choice to take a coach trip and experience this wonderful City of Lights. However, France has so much more to offer. For example, in the North you will find the region of Normandy which offers a wealth of superb destinations to visit. Join an escorted tour and explore the stretching coastline, including the Omaha’ D-Day landing beach, or climb the rocky island of Mont-Saint-Michel just off the North West coast and wonder at its magical Gothic abbey.
A trip to the South of France is a must. In the South West you will find the city of Bordeaux, famous for its wine-growing region and impressive neoclassical architecture. Join a tour at the new international wine museum and learn about Bordeaux’s fascinating wine making history. Provence is also a delightful region in the South East of France, known for its beautiful villages and heavenly countryside, making it a fantastic holiday destination you will want to visit time and time.
Marseille is the ancient capital of Provence, and offers a wealth of fascinating sights and experiences, as do many other towns and cities in this region and beyond. From familiar named places such as Cannes and Nice on the French Riviera, to the medieval and fortified city and town of Avignon and Carcassonne, the South of France has to be seen to be believed.

Of course, you can’t go to Morocco without a trip to Casablanca, a place made famous by the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman movie classic. Whilst there, take some time to visit ‘Rick’s Café Casablanca’, a bar, restaurant and café filled with decor reminiscent of the film, including the famous piano.
