A note from our Chairman/Managing Director
I’m so delighted to show you our wonderful range of escorted group tours to some fascinating countries in Europe and further afield.
When we set up Prestige Holidays back in 1989, I’d already been in the travel industry since leaving school and had witnessed first hand the rapid expansion of the sector. Those were exciting times, but all too soon the connection with the customer and pride in giving good service was in danger of being lost.
That’s why we set up Prestige, with a mission to deliver service, value and our unparalleled expertise to our customers. Then, as now, we only offered destinations which we know intimately, and our passion was to ensure that our customers got the holiday they deserved.
On the subject of value, we aim to include a lot of services in our prices which most of our competitors do not. It’s worth looking at the full picture so you can appreciate the real value we give, including the majority of meals and tips. Good things rarely go out of fashion and I’m delighted to say that, more than 30 years later, our business still stands firmly on those foundations. Our customers place great trust in us and continue to enjoy the treasures we find for them, time and time again. We are happy to stake our name on it, and offer our Prestige Pledge to hand-pick only the places that will make each holiday special.
Within this website you’ll find some meticulously planned and unique itineraries showcasing some of world’s most interesting destinations. We offer extensive programmes in Italy, Greece, and the ‘New Europe’ as well as a burgeoning one in the Middle East, including being one of the first tour operators in the UK to feature Lebanon again after the lifting of its travel restrictions. Complementing this is a range of opera inspired tours to Italy, and UK wildlife tours. I struggle to pick my favourite. I hope you love them as much as I do!
I take great pride in introducing you to all of my colleagues at Prestige. Our specialists have a first-hand, in-depth knowledge of our destinations – like no other tour operator I know of. They designed the tours, after all.
