Small Group Trips? Absolutely.
“Group tours”? Not quite.
B&R doesn’t do tours—we run trips that bring together a few like-minded travellers who enjoy doing their own thing.
At B&R, we work hard to plan your day—meticulously—but never chain you to it. We know that the most memorable moments happen when the best-laid plans reinvent themselves. On a B&R trip our travellers can easily find time away from the group. You can choose whether to join in or enjoy some alone time. Your guide helps make it happen.
People who choose to spend their precious vacation time biking or walking with B&R tend to share our outlook on life and travel; they want an active vacation, sure, but one that stimulates the mind and palate too. Plus they want to have fun. As a result, our trips are packed with people who share a sense of wanderlust, an appreciation for travelling in style and the belief that a good belly laugh is good for the soul.
Time On Your Own
While we love breaking bread with new friends, we also appreciate that some meals are best spent in private company. That’s why each of our trips offers the opportunity to spend some time on your own. Looking for a romantic dinner for two this evening? We can point out our favourite spots. Feel like hitting the spa this afternoon? We’ll catch up with you later tonight.
Please, Put Your Wallet Away
Once your B&R trip begins, you can turn off the part of your brain responsible for currency conversion. We don’t want you to even think about taking out your wallet. We pay for everything it makes sense to pay for. Wine? Of course. Your shopping spree at Hermès? Umm, no.
B&R guides are an exceptional group. They are consummate hosts, mind readers and raconteurs. Think teachers, painters, travel writers, architects, botanists and biologists. You should see their CVs. They’ve lived all over the world. They speak a gazillion languages. And they’re ridiculously fun to be around.Meet Your Guides

A Birthday He’ll Never Forget
After 25 years, you probably thought there were no more surprises. That was before you saw The Path of the Gods. In Amalfi, every view is breathtaking, every bite sumptuous and every sip delicious (to say nothing of refreshing—thank you very much, limoncello).Amalfi Coast Walking
Vibrant Vietnam On Two Wheels
Certainly, the country is thriving, but that just means the roads are a bit better (making our bikes a little happier), and even more luxurious hotels pepper the coast. But the people remain the same: gracious, warm, and infinitely inviting—and we certainly meet a lot of them on this epic journey from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City.Vietnam Biking
Super Tuscans & Medieval Wonders
This is the region you imagine when you think of Italy; home to olive groves and cypress trees, Roman battlefields and Renaissance churches, and a who’s who of charming villages—from tiny Trequanda and Montisi to Gaiole in Chianti, Siena, and Pienza.Tuscany Wine Country E-Biking
More Than Machu Picchu
Sure, crossing The Lost City off his bucket list will be a milestone for your wife. But between the cuisine, the activity, the views and the people, Peru will make this a trip she’ll never forget.Peru Walking
Looking for paradise? A typical trip just won’t do. Fortunately, “typical” has been banned from Bali. From pristine beaches to lush jungle, this place offers perfection at every turn.Bali Active Expedition
In some ways, Provence requires no introduction. We all have ready images of its bucolic landscapes, painted purple with lavender and of gnarled olive trees, majestic cypresses, plus all that magical light made famous by Van Gogh.Provence Luberon Biking
Ascend on One of Italy’s Best Kept Secrets
Experience the area’s diverse and amazing hikes, fabulous hotels and a line-up of activities that will justify some time in the hotel’s resplendent spa.Dolomites Family Adventure
