Riviera Travel hosts its first tour of the year

Escorted tours specialist Riviera Travel has completed its first holiday of 2021 – a five-day tour of the Peak District.

It was the first of 100 UK departures that Riviera has available up to the end of October.

The UK programme features 12 five- or six-day itineraries, and includes destinations such as Norfolk, Devon, Oxford, the Scottish Highlands and Somerset.

There are four tours for solo travellers, to Norfolk, Cornwall, the Lake District and North Yorkshire.

The Peak District stay includes guided tours of Chatsworth House (pictured) and the spa town of Buxton, and a journey on the Peak Rail heritage line.

All UK tours will be small group experiences, capped at 25 guests.

Guests travel in socially-distanced full-size coaches that will be half-full at the most, and stays in three or four-star hotels.

Jim Forward, chief commercial officer at Riviera Travel, said: “We’re so pleased to welcome guests on our UK tours again.

“The feedback we’ve had from our Peak District guests has been fantastic, and it’s given everyone a real boost to know we’re back up and running again.”

Riviera’s 2021 tours start at £569 and include hotel stays, breakfast and tour manager.
