Butterfield & Robinson: The Best Pace for Everyone
Butterfield & Robinson manages to do the impossible: Orient each group trip to suit the needs and speeds of guests with different interests who move at different speeds. If you’ve ever been on a group trip and been frustrated by how a single slowpoke can derail a day (or maybe you’re the slowpoke who desperately wants people to stop rushing through every moment), you’ll likely appreciate this particular bit of tour-leader magic. B&R guides are experts at creating a rich itinerary for people moving at different speeds, and they have all sorts of tricks up their sleeves, including arranging alternate transfers, using extra vehicles, and filling unanticipated downtime with new adventures.
