Experience the difference for your next group tour, all at no extra cost.
Our customized tours for student and adult groups stand out in quality and attention to detail! When you travel with us, you have the power to request it all – from specific hotels, to destinations, to restaurants, or your favorite Tour Leader.
You pick your theme and focus of the tour and we make exactly what you want and more. Throughout the process we will give suggestions to make your tour exceptional.
With Lingo Tours, our travelers enjoy high quality tours at the most competitive rates. We believe it is important to put the traveler in the center. Our tours must have a natural flow; be comfortable and enriching. That is why we work with 4-5 star hotels with central locations for our groups. Student dinners, as well as meals for adult groups, are always of high quality. We keep a personal communication with Group Leaders and travelers and we listen carefully to what you have to tell us.
When the tour is created we will offer suggestions to make it unique and to ensure the best tour flow by adding in solutions you may not have thought of. Many of our groups return again and again, year after year. Because we have gotten to know them so well, we know what they appreciate and like to throw in some fun surprises, like travelling by tuk tuk to your dinner or zooming down Lake Garda on speed boats with a stop for a swim. When we design a tour, we make sure it stands out.
Here are some examples of special moments on tour.

2. Central Hotels of Quality
Central hotels of high standard is key for us. We work with both known brands such as Meridien, Marriott, Hilton, and Mercure, but also with smaller private owned high quality options where we have done rigorous safety audits. The lesser know, albeit surprisingly good, are hotels like Carnival Palace (Venice), Amano (Berlin), Kimpton De Witt (Amsterdam) and Hotel Duquesa de Cardona (Barcelona). The list of great accommodations is long, but to provide some examples of both student and adult hotels, please see the list below of the most common hotels that we work with in some of the capitals.
