Since 1995, thousands of Australians have discovered a better way to explore Europe with Brisbane based tour operator, Albatross Tours.  By designing tours to suit the specific needs of Australian travellers, the tour operator offers small group European tours featuring longer stays in each location and genuine inclusions.

Founded by Euan Landsborough, now Managing Director of Albatross Tours says it all started nearly 30 years ago when he was a Tour Manager for another company heading into Austria. “The sky was blue, the sunshine was drenching the glorious green meadows and the Bavarian mountains soared either side. It was heavenly! Yet every person on the coach was fast asleep and oblivious to it all because they were all so tired. Another very long day on the coach and too many one night stops along the way has taken its toll. Sadly, they were missing so much.”

Those days left a lasting impression on Euan and when he first started designing European tours he knew he could offer a more satisfying touring experience. “The first thing I did was to incorporate leisurely two to five night stays in superb locations. Next I included so many wonderful European experiences and highlights and made sure we included a healthy balance of sightseeing along with time to relax and savour the surroundings. Plus, I limited the group size to ensure a more personal style of touring”.

Albatross Tours’ traveller Jean Brown felt the benefits of the Albatross difference firsthand, on her recent tour of Italy with the award-winning company.

“I’ve travelled independently, and my Albatross tour is by far the best travelling experience I’ve had. We couldn’t have done it anywhere near as well on our own.

“Other tours seem to be very rushed, and can leave you feeling like you’ve missed out on things, but with Albatross I felt l had a chance to stop and ‘smell the roses’ in each destination. I also loved that the hotels were all beautiful and had so much character. Albatross chooses hotels that are really true to the cultural heritage of the destination.

“It was also comforting to know that I wasn’t going to be charged additional costs for extras such as excursions and meals like some other tour companies who sell these as ‘options’ – Albatross was not only the best touring experience, but also the best value for money.”
