Quality and Value
Begin and end your tour in style with Collette’s included chauffeur driven airport transfers (up to 40km). Stay in superior 4-star and above hotels that are hand-picked by the team and named in your itinerary allowing you to see your location and the facilities. Each property is carefully selected according to its history, location or breathtaking views, often making your accommodation a highlight all of its own. For example, America’s Omni hotels on the 8-day America's Historic Mid-Atlantic itinerary. These grand hotels have the prestige of accommodating former Presidents and are beautifully appointed to provide an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding historic neighbourhoods - or soak in mineral hot springs! Surround yourself in awe-inspiring wilderness on the 7-day Northern Lights of Finland Tour, as you search for the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Embrace Lapland tradition as you stay in a glass igloo and a Finnish log cabin.
Indulge your tastebuds with unique culinary experiences – dine out in Salzburg in a restaurant dating back 1200 years, or enjoy an overnight stay in a pub on the Isles of Arran as part of a small group tour to Ireland. All the key highlights are included with Collette allowing you to see the value and plan your budget with ease.
