The Travel-Quest guided day tours section lists companies and individual guides who offer guided day tours including city tours and sightseeing trips to tourist attractions, destinations and sites of interest in cities, towns, villages and the countryside. These will be tours that that last a few hours or even full days. Tours will generally be lead by experienced trained tour guides – tourist guides who will interpret the culture, architecture and history of an area, town or city, frequently in the tourists own language. Such guides will normally hold a location-specific qualification issued and/or recognized by an appropriate local, regional or country authority.
We also list specialised day tours that focus on a particular theme, be it film and TV locations, ghost and supernatural activity, or whisky tasting tours to various distilleries. Tours may use a range of transport, from simple walking tours to standard car, coach or mini-bus trips – as well as less common transport options such as bike, boat or even Segway.
Tours in this section will last no longer than a day and will not involve overnight accommodation, please see some of our other sections for longer tours and holidays:
