Kirker provide over 50s holidays for the discerning traveller

Since creating their first luxury short breaks in 1986, Kirker’s aim has been to provide discerning travellers with a carefully selected range of hotels combined with tailor-made travel arrangements, comfortable private transfers, and well researched itineraries that enable you to make the most of your budget and the time you have available.

Kirker Holidays’ destinations include the classic cultural cities and relaxing rural regions of Europe from Paris and St Petersburg to Venice and Vienna, as well as Tuscany, Provence, Andalucia and the Douro Valley. For those in search of a longer ‘short break’, Kirker also offers tailor-made holidays to the dramatic landscapes of North Africa and the Middle East, India and Southern Africa – all with the benefit of carefully-chosen hotels and expert local guides. This makes Kirker the first choice for people booking Over 50s Holidays.

Kirker’s range of city breaks includes not only travel arrangements, transfers and hotel accommodation, but also a wide range of extras from museum passes and gallery tickets to private walking tours. The Kirker Concierge is on hand at all times to recommend local restaurants, book a table for dinner, or to arrange concert and opera tickets prior to your departure. Nothing is too much trouble!

The team of Kirker destination experts has travelled throughout Europe and beyond extensively and can offer personal, first-hand advice on the best hotels to suit your requirements and the ideal time to travel. They will tailor-make a holiday including travel by air, car, private transfer or the comprehensive European rail network – or perhaps for a special occasion, a journey on the famous Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, one of Spain’s luxury trains such as The Transcantabrico and La Robla, the Palace on Wheels and the Maharaja’s Express in India or South Africa’s Blue Train.

If you are tired of scouring the internet for hotels, Kirker’s range of hand-picked properties comprises the very best of each destination, from cosy 3* and 4*, to 5* deluxe hotels, as well as charming rural inns, grand old ‘palazzi’ in Italy, beautiful riads in Morocco and historical paradors and pousadas in Spain and Portugal. Kirker’s experts have visited all of these hotels and can offer first-hand advice on the best properties to suit your requirements and budget.

For those who prefer to travel with like-minded companions, Kirker’s programme of Cultural Tours and Music Holidays offers small groups in the company of an expert tour leader or lecturer. Itineraries include The Villas and Gardens of Rome, the Palaces & Galleries of St Petersburg, and Opera in New York. Kirker also presents exclusive classical music festivals in beautiful settings such as Ischia, Mallorca and Lake Como as well as musical weekends in East Sussex, Cornwall and Suffolk – and a wide range tours to leading music and opera festivals in Europe, such as the Puccini Opera Festival, the Schubertiade and the Grafenegg Festival in Austria.
