Summer is well and truly over, but don’t despair; it’s now the count-down to the most magical time of the year…Christmas! However, before you start to panic about buying presents and hosting extensive festive parties for friends and family, it’s a great time to think instead about escaping all the stress and booking a wonderful winter getaway.
Tours At Christmas: Our Top Tips For The Best Christmas Tours This Winter
Whether you’re looking for an atmospheric winter wonderland in a far-flung location, or a sun-soaked escape from the dreary grey skies back home, there is definitely an Xmas tour just perfect for your requirements, just waiting for you to discover it. Here are a few of our top tips for your magical Christmas destination this year.
1. Soak Up The Ambiance In Mysterious Morocco
With pleasant temperatures of around 15˚ to 20˚, Morocco not only offers a wonderful opportunity to get away from the freezing temperatures at home, but also provides plenty of adventure and exotic experiences.
Book a tour of Morocco and do some Christmas shopping in the souks of Marrakech before setting off on a tour of the desert; on the back of a camel, of course! Other highlights of Morocco include the ancient imperial city of Fez, with over 10,000 enchantingly narrow, labyrinthine streets, and the mighty peaks of the Atlas Mountains, which create the perfect dramatic backdrop for your winter adventure.
2. Get To Grips With Wintery Russia
Russia has a cultural and historical background quite unlike any other place in the world, and one of the best times to visit the country is undoubtedly in the winter. The mesmerizingly sombre, imposing architecture of the cities of St Petersburg and Moscow are particularly impressive when set against a chill, cloud-ridden sky!
Whilst on a Christmas tour in Russia, make sure to visit the eerie Peter and Paul fortress and the exquisite Catherine Palace in St Petersburg, with its opulent baroque design and distinctly aristocratic ambiance.
3. Christmas Tours With A Difference In Turkey
Turkey has a huge variety of places to explore, and winter is an excellent time to visit, when temperatures have dipped to a more comfortable 15˚ to 20˚. The country is home to no less than 10 UNESCO world heritage sites, and if you book this Christmas tour of Turkey, you can visit three of them; the strange, cotton-candy pools of Pamukkale, the ‘fairy chimneys’ of Cappadocia and the ancient, enigmatic streets of Istanbul.
