About Great Trips Ltd
Who are Great Trips Ltd?
Great Trips Ltd is the parent company of Great British Trips; a land based Tour Operator founded by two British people with a genuine love for travel and an even greater love for Britain. Following some extensive travel around the globe and a lot of research the Great Trips Directors discovered one simple truth; planning a first time visit to a new country is seriously hard work. Everyone they spoke to, some of whom had visited the UK and some who had not, had expereienced that unless you wanted to join a coach tour with a set schedule on set dates, the only alternative was to spend hours resarching where to go and stay. As an independant traveller or group organiser, you must check out endless reviews and research the reliability of every single element of a tour. Once you decided where to go and what to see, you then have to make the booking which is an exhausting, confusing and time consuming process! One independent traveller said:
“Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could just create a list of all the places and attractions you wanted to see and a local expert worked out all the details?!”
The ‘Great Trips’ concept was born.
Everyone agreed that it would be wonderful to create a tour of your own making; simply choosing the locations and activities and have a local expert plan and book it all for you. The company began by planning tours of the UK and in 2012 linked up with key figures in the Irish Tourism Industry to launch Great Irish Trips. As a specialist travel tour operator, every single one of our tours is tailor made and individually designed to the customers' requirements and budget. We don’t ask you to choose from a list of set tours in a brochure, but simply tell us where you want to go, what you want to do and we’ll put together the perfect tour for you or your clients.
