Our City Stays – ‘Bolt-on’ trips

Bolt-on trips are typically short single destination trips (or City Stays) that allow travelers to fully explore their arrival and/or departure destinations. Bolt-ons are designed to be “bolted on” to the beginning or end of longer trips as we prefer to spend less time in large cities and more time in more obscure places you might not be able to get to on your own. If you haven’t been to the arrival or departure city before you may want to consider adding a bolt-on to allow you to fully explore this destination. Bolt-on trips are a good mix of iconic sights, hidden gems and free time to allow you to have your own adventure. Bolt-ons are also a good opportunity to adjust to the local culture and meet your travel companions prior to the main trip start.


  • Include a good mix of picture postcard sights, hidden gems, unique experiences and free time for you to explore on your own
  • Stay at the same accommodation as the trip and arrive or depart hassle free with an included airport transfer
  • Designed to introduce you to the culture of the destination – when the rest of the group arrives, you’ll already be an expert!
  • Bolt-on trips usually match the wider style of the main trip and are available in Explorer, Unique and Luxe
  • Can be booked on a private basis for any date, please contact us for pricing.
