NOW BOOKING:

A Return to Riga

An Explorer Tour to Latvia

Wednesday 27th May to Monday 1st June 2020

 

Includes a City of Riga retro tram tour, river cruise to Jūrmala, coach tour to Sigulda, guided pub walking tour, breweries and craft beer, and historic architecture.

 

In 2001 we made one of our early “beyond the wall” tours to Latvia. Then we were lucky to find three breweries to visit; now there are several more than this plus a host of craft beer pubs in a area now designated as the Riga Beer District. The still very-good-value of drinks and other items will not burn a large hole in one’s pockets during this early summer long weekend. Some final information is still awaited but bookings have opened now as Air Baltic has a seat sale on until 12th November where some good prices are available on our dates and some around them. Please click on the “Details and Booking Form” link.

The Greater Manchester Explorer

Friday 20th to Monday 23rd December 2019

(optional extension from Thursday 19th December)

A very-good-value weekend based at the Best Western Hotel in Altrincham, which will include three nights B&B and a dinner on arrival Friday if required. The town is quite attractive as an affluent suburb of Manchester with several GBG pubs to enjoy as well as the market.

The town is at the western end of the Metrolink tram system and has a direct, fast train service hourly to Stockport, just 16 minutes away. That town also has great drinking possibilities too. 

Direct senior rail fares from Euston are about £41 return currently with advance purchase - but you may do better locally.

We plan to make a few brewery visits but most of the time will allow you to find your own enjoyment in either or both cities as well as more locally around Altrincham. If you would like an extra night (Thursday) at extra cost to enjoy an additional day and cheaper outward fare (about £5 less), please say so as I'm sure the hotel will oblige.

Costs:

Around £150 for single occ. and £125 for a twin/double. Any arranged brewery visits may push the cost a little higher but the whole weekend is great value for the area.
