Small Group Trips

Private Travel

Go With People You Love


Our motto is “Slow Down to See the World” because we feel the world deserves to be discovered slowly. And no matter what your preferred mode of “slow” is—bike, boat or camel—rest assured that we’ve got you covered.

Activity Levels


activity-levels“How fit do I have to be?”

It’s one of the questions we get most often, and the answer’s simple:

You do not have to be an athlete in any way, shape or form.

Don’t get us wrong—we like pressure. It keeps our wine corked, our bike tires firm, and our olive oil delicious.

But when it comes to the journey, pressure is strictly verboten. We believe that you should go at whatever speed suits you: slow, fast, or sipping Chianti in the van.

Support Levels



With all due respect to the Rolling Stones, we humbly disagree with them on at least one crucial point: sometimes you really can get what you want.

Take B&R trips, for example. With varying levels of on-trip support to choose from, you can decide which level is right for you.

Whether you want to be left to your own devices or guided each step of the way, when it comes to service, we pride ourselves on providing exactly what you want.

Our Hotels



Winning hotels are a hallmark of B&R; we go to great lengths to find properties that are unique expressions of the region: castles, ships and lux tents included.

Once the sun goes down, we’ve noticed that two different kinds of travellers emerge, so our hotels come in two flavours:


Want nights as resplendent as your days? Every Signature hotel is a stunning expression of the region. Think former castles, private windswept terraces, and a view worth swooning over.


Is your holy grail a blissful night’s sleep? Our Bistro hotels are serene but a little more casual—for travellers who see hotels as a trip’s delicious antipasto, but prefer their waking experience be left as the main course.

Ready to Go?


We love a fancy webpage as much as the next person (and we certainly work pretty hard on ours!), but if you really want to find out what B&R is all about, you’ll just have to join us on trip.

Use our Tripfinder to find a journey that’s right for you, and feel free to give us a call at 1-866-551-9090 if you have any questions.
