What we're about

Welcome to GET OUT OF LONDON! – Affordable tours and adventures in some of Europe's most fascinating destinations.

Providing hiking, day trips and foreign adventure since 2010, 'Get Out of London' is now solely focussed on foreign travel. With a proliferation of groups already providing similar experiences, we are taking our vast experience to showing you Europe's more obscure and exciting destinations.

We are about discovering Europe's hidden gems and lesser-known parts of more familiar countries. From crossing the Moldovan border into the non-existent country of Transnistria, taking a scary cable-car in Albania up to a mountain trail ending in a tranquil restaurant enjoying fresh trout, to discovering the Prague you didn't know existed, Xmas markets in Poland's smaller cities and sampling sherry in Andalucía, we have trips for all tastes.

We have been to Moldova, Ukraine, Albania, Latvia, Spain, France and many others. We plan, when safe to do so, Georgia, Armenia, Israel and even Kazakhstan.

Most importantly 'Get Out of London' is about meeting people and building a community of like-minded travellers from all backgrounds and ages. Many of our travellers have been on several trips with us enjoying the safe and well-organised, but fun and relaxed schedules we arrange.

We know arranging holidays when you have a hectic schedule can be challenging, particularly in these times. So we arrange everything from airport taxis, 3/4 star hotels, guiding, entry fees, trains and private buses, not to mention eating and drinking in the evenings. You won't be short of companions and things to do. You just buy a flight to the destination and let us take care of everything else.

We keep an eye on any Covid-related rules and restrictions and other political issues and plan accordingly with updated advice.

With a guide that has spent many years travelling and living in the destinations, your sure to have a unique experience enjoying not just the main sights, but also something a little different from the mainstream.

We look forward to you joining us on one of our adventures.

I'm really excited to announce our first trip to the Kingdom of Jordan. During this week-long adventure we will use the services of a professional tourist agency to maximise our time and see as many amazing sights as possible. With a history combining Greek, Roman, the mysterious Nabataean and Muslim influences there is a wealth of history and sights to experience.
More important is the chance to wander through the wonderful landscape of deserts, mountains, canyons, nature reserves, the Dead Sea and the world-famous site of Petra.
With full guiding, hotels, entrance visas and most meals and entrance fees included, you can enjoy this incredible and safe country with the minimum of fuss.
