Celebrating 50 years of custom-made tours

Celebrating 50 years of custom-made tours

We turn 50 this year!

A huge “Thank You” to all of you for your support over the years. We believe in building long-term partnerships based on mutual trust and want you to think of us as an extension of your own office, and we are truly grateful for the trust you have placed in us over the years.

Despite reaching this momentous milestone, our approach is still fresh and original. We create unique and exciting travel experiences for Special Interest and Educational groups and focus on seeking out those enriching, life-enhancing travel moments that are more often found when connecting with local people in their own communities.

We never take your trust in us for granted and we never forget that you have a choice!

Our Testimonials

William Haire

“We consider Sovereign Tourism as our most reliable partner in outbound groups to Europe. They have been instrumental in the success of our groups for over 25 years!

Kourosh and his experienced team always go the extra mile to provide us with the very best hotels and other services.

These are true partners with unlimited vision and forethought.”

John Cooney

Group Leader

“The tour is going great – the itinerary that you put together has been fantastic – lots of light and shade, plenty of time to relax and some nice extra touches.

Also, the Tour Manager is going above and beyond in every respect.”

Terry Price

Director of Music, Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church, Texas

“I don’t think there could be a better tour company anywhere.

With the wonderful folks they have both in the office and in the field, you can’t go wrong.”

Our Philosophy

Personalised Service

We offer a professional and friendly service with reliability, knowledge, quality and value as it’s four pillars. We are committed to nurturing personalised  experiences and want to make life as easy and as smooth as possible for our partners. Driven by our passion for travel and using our extensive network of contacts, we provide groups with unique, creative, enriching and rewarding experiences which change lives. There are so many possibilities and so many durable travel experiences we can add to any tour.

Sustainability & the environment

In our office, we have been paperless since 2019, and when we have to use paper, we make sure that it is all recycled. In our kitchen, we have no disposable cups or cutlery. We even use filtered water, rather than mineral. For our groups, we encourage efforts in programme design and operation that pay attention to the environment; for example, we encourage travellers to use public transport as and when possible, and also strive to use smaller coaches for smaller groups. We encourage our staff and travellers to be green and locally-minded, and respectful of cultural and regional practices when operating groups.

Partnerships Built on Trust

We believe in building long-term partnerships based on mutual trust and working closely with you to grow and develop your group business. We want you to think of us as an extension of your own office and are truly grateful for the trust you place in us. We always go the extra mile, and never forget that you have a choice!

One-stop Shop

Over the years, we have developed strong partnerships with an extensive list of reliable suppliers and contacts, working directly with all of them. We can work with all specifications and budgets and our aim is to be a one-stop shop for all your group travel needs across Europe, cutting out the need to use multiple suppliers.
