Tours of Great Britain explore England Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland is a part of the United Kingdom. The south is mostly rolling hills after the forests, the highlands of Scotland are mountain ridges and deep valleys that were created by glaciers in the last ice age.
Britain has been invaded many times. The first arrivals were the Celts from Europe who pushed the first Britons (the Picts) into Scotland. They were followed by the Romans, Anglo-Saxons from Germany, the Vikings from Scandinavia and the Normans from France. The British then built the world’s largest empire which closed after WWII and most of its colonies became independent nations.
The capital, London was founded by the Romans in the first century. When the Welsh Henry Tudor defeated Richard III in the War of the Roses he was the last king to win the throne in battle. The British have a strong preservation ethic. Because of this they have some of the most outstanding architecture, museums, castles, history and monuments to experience. Transport and tourist services are very well organized and the country is a joy to visit.

This cutting-edge city is as into its new trends as its old traditions.

Scotland has the buzzing cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow to the off-the-beaten-track beauty of the Highlands and islands, untouched by time. So look beyond the bagpipes and whisky and you’ll uncover a dynamic country where you’re as likely to find experimental music and theatre as you are tweed and tartan.
Wales has snow-capped peaks to wild coastline, it is compact and neighborly. Come to switch off, and explore untouched valleys and sleepy villages. Or come to enjoy raring-to-go towns and the capital Cardiff – voted Britain’s most sociable city. From London, you can be here in just over two hours. Then all the adventure you could wish for, in this enchanting Celtic land, is yours.
Northern Ireland has landscapes so magical they could be fantasy, from forbidden forests to sweeping glacial valleys. Take the captivating coastal road to see the Giant’s Causeway, one of Europe’s most celebrated natural wonders, or feel the spray from the other side of the Atlantic. When it comes to city life, there’s the colorful capital Belfast and fun-filled Derry – nicknamed Legenderry by locals. Whether you want to hit a golf ball around a world-class golf course or hit the pub for a ‘trad’ music session, you’re in for some great craic on the emerald isle.
