Most international tourists choose to book a London walking tour to discover the city through the eyes of a savvy local. But choosing the right walking tour is harder than it sounds.

I recently spent 3 days in Dubrovnik and left feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and inspired by the city’s seaside vibe. I put together this itinerary to help you explore this walled city’s seducing history, taste Michelin-recommended dishes, find Game of Thrones filming locations, and swim at nearby islands. Yep, all in 3 days.
York’s backstory had no shortage of drama, and the modern city celebrates its past, warts and all, creating a charming fusion of classical and quirky that’s ripe for exploring. My itinerary for 3 days in York feels like a living history book filled with tall Roman walls, Norman castles, quaint medieval buildings, Victorian railways, and narrow cobblestone streets... and even a ghost story or three.
We took the ultimate Game of Thrones Croatia tour through Dubrovnik and Split to discover real filming locations behind the world’s most popular television series of all time. We also went deeper for fascinating history and a little secret gossip from locals. Find out what we discovered.

The Greek Islands are a dream destination on every bucket list. When I recently visited Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, I was utterly dazzled - it doesn’t just have charming towns, immaculate beaches, and some of the best food in Greece, Crete also has an extraordinary World War II history. I took an ANZAC tour with Specialty Tours Greece to witness firsthand what life would have been like for soldiers defending the island during the climactic WWII Battle of Crete.
Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was the centre of the Italian Renaissance where renowned artists like Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Botticelli mastered their trade. But art isn’t the only beautiful thing about Florence.

I recently travelled for 3 weeks around Italy by train and have put all my first-hand experience and research into this epic 3-week rail itinerary just for you. Start in Milan and travel to La Spezia, Cinque Terre, Rome, Florence, and Venice before wrapping up back in Milan. There are more highlights than you can count... this was my best rail journey so far!
We spent 1 day in Milan at the end of a whirlwind rail tour around Italy, and crammed as much site-seeing as we could into 24 hours. This 1-day itinerary visits Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, climbs the Duomo, and even squeezes a little time for shopping in The Golden Triangle. Be warned, this plan isn’t for the faint of heart. But then again, neither is Milan.
I visited Venice to see if it lives up to the hype and to explore the epicentre of the Venetian Empire that thrived during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Here’s my handy 2 day itinerary that covers Venetian museums, icons like Rialto Bridge and Doge’s Palace, and then spends a day away from the maddening crowds touring nearby islands Murano and Burano.
Rome is called “the Eternal City” for very good reason. It’s impact on the world has been, well, pretty eternal. Visiting Rome in any short timeframe is destined to be a challenge. I recently had only 2 days in Rome to explore the essential big-ticket attractions like the Colosseum, Vatican City, and Trevi Fountain. Here’s how to do Rome like a pro.

Right off the bat, I’ll say this will be an awkward article. I’m talking about poop. This is something that affects most people in one way or another. Yep, you’re not alone. Up to 50-70% of travellers are affected by travellers’ diarrhoea (TD) at one time or another. I've tried a new medication called Travelan that helps prevent TD in 90% of cases.
Recording your journeys is as old as time. Prehistoric Paleolithic dudes did it. Ancient Greek conquerors did it. This scratch off world map is blissfully simple and you get the same buzz as an instant-win scratchy game, but there’s no gambling involved… everyone’s a winner! Simply scratch off the foil from countries you’ve been to, and you’re rewarded with a gratifying burst of colour and an overwhelming sense of satisfaction.
