Private Group Holidays

We love organising holidays! And we know that you love to get away for a well-earned break with your family and friends.  
During recent times, this has become perhaps even more important than ever, so if you are looking for a get together with your folks, some new experiences to share and for someone else to take the strain of organising this for you – we can help!

There is a myriad of reasons why you may want to travel as a private group; for family celebrations, an adventure for you and your band of friends, a get together for one of your social groups or clubs, a team bonding experience for you and your colleagues or perhaps just to spend some quality time together with your favourite people – whatever your reason, we can make it happen…

Walking together is a sociable experience, you’ve got time to talk, take in the views, enjoy new experiences and then you can relax in the evenings and relive the highpoints of your day over a relaxed meal.

Our head office team and our tour leader will ensure all the logistics are taken care of before and during your holiday; all you need to do is get your group on board, agree the destination and date, and then let us take care of the detail.

An introduction to Mel

I have always worked in the travel industry since leaving school and I still absolutely love it!  Liaising with customers on the shop floor in travel agencies and helping them with ‘all things travel’ from booking train and theatre tickets, hotel and flight bookings, car hire and foreign exchange to finding their ultimate dream holiday was where I began, before moving on to organising business trips around the world for Tesco.

I found my way to RWH Travel in 2002, and I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else! I took a break to look after my children but came back to the sales department in 2012. I have always been customer service focused and I’ve really enjoyed building strong relationships with customers, and more recently Private Group Organisers, which has been rather important over the last 18 months with everything we have been through together!

Organising a group holiday is a tough job, I’m here to ease that pressure for you and to offer all the support you may need by being your dedicated point of contact. Understanding the challenges that you have taken on in organising your group holiday is key, and I always look forward to building our relationship and looking after you and your groups for a long time to come.   If you haven’t already been in contact with me, don’t hesitate to let me know of your travel plans for your group, I’ll work closely with you to bring your ideas to fruition and ensure your experience is as stress free as possible! 

In my spare time I also love to travel, spend time out in the village I live in (mostly eating and drinking with family, friends, and neighbours!), take theatre trips and some lovely long walks with my cocker spaniels Marley & Dexter.

Our itineraries and Expert Tour Leaders

Every one of our holidays has a carefully crafted itinerary, our holidays are planned by people who are passionate about really getting to the heart of the destination. We get off the tourist trail and make sure you have time to stroll through the market, taste the wine, and really immerse yourself into the local culture - all shared with your favourite people.

On an Adagio holiday, the showing is telling, as we take you on a journey of discovery. From the quaint villages and captivating coastline surrounding the UK to the sweeping lakeside towns and snow-capped mountain hamlets of Europe, we’ll help you to discover each destination at a more leisurely pace.  

Our Adagio Leaders, who accompany you on each holiday, are there to inform and inspire, transforming every good holiday into a great one.  You and your group can just simply enjoy the experience knowing that your friendly and supportive tour leader is taking care of the logistics.

Charitable Ethos

As a not for profit social enterprise, through our charities and initiatives we are able to give something back to the places and communities we operate in. The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust supports walking projects and charities both in the UK and overseas.

Whilst The Walking Partnership helps provide direct financial support to local walking clubs throughout the UK. If you’re a member of a walking group it’s free to join us as a partner. You will earn rewards and funding of up to £30pp for your walking group every time you or your group members book a holiday with us.

We are also the official walking holiday partner of The Ramblers. We’ve invested millions of pounds, for more than 70 years, to educate and encourage everyone to look after our world today, for others to experience and enjoy tomorrow.
