At Grape Escapes, we believe that there is no substitute for individual knowledge and experience which enables us to deliver a truly personal service to all our customers. We specialise in a limited range of destinations so you can be sure that we have a deep and extensive knowledge of your chosen holiday region.
We believe that our customers deserve the best value and service, irrespective of whether they are spending £200 or £20,000 on a trip. We have personally visited all of the hotels that we recommend and we keep all of our suppliers under constant review to ensure that the quality of service and welcome meet our high standards. As well as monitoring responses from our customer feedback, we ensure that each supplier is assessed regularly by a Grape Escapes representative to ensure that the establishment is still as we would expect.
We are so confident that not only do we offer high quality tours, but that we offer the best value on all of our packages that we guarantee that you will not find a comparable tour package priced cheaper anywhere on the internet. If you do, we will refund you 100% of the difference. Also, all tours booked with Grape Escapes are protected by either ATOL or ABTA. For more details, please see our lowest price guarantee and our financial protection pages.
We offer a very flexible range of holidays within each of the regions that we visit. On this site, you will find details of our ‘Premium,’ ‘Flexible,’ ‘Exclusive’, ‘Self Drive Chateau Breaks’ and ‘Budget’ tours that we offer for individuals. In addition, we arrange bespoke vacations for individuals and a large number of trips and events for groups and companies.
The flexibility offered by Grape Escapes isn’t just limited to the tour dates, but also includes the type of accommodation and travel method you prefer. We have visited dozens of hotels in each region to find the right accommodation for our guests and we offer a range to suit all requirements. From friendly family run 2 star hotels in convenient town centre locations to 5 star luxury hotels and secluded châteaux where both service and presentation are impeccable, we guarantee the most appropriate accommodation for your requirements and budget. With each of our featured regions / tours, we have also included a section on travel so that you can evaluate the most suitable option for you.
With every Grape Escape, you will have the opportunity to visit a number of vineyards and wine makers. We know from personal experience and consistent customer feedback that the most enjoyable tours are not necessarily given by the big names but often by our carefully selected smaller growers who are passionate about their wines. We therefore organise visits to a range of wine makers both small and large, to allow you to compare for yourself. On many of our tours, you will have the opportunity to meet the wine makers and learn firsthand about the numerous factors that influence the production of quality wines and of course, no tour would be complete without tasting the wines!
A final essential element in every Grape Escape is the opportunity to enjoy the wines as the makers intended – by sitting down to enjoy them with a good meal. We take the same care in selecting and recommending restaurants and individual menus as we do with the rest of your trip.
