About Us

Authentic Adventures is an ATOL bonded Tour Operator offering some of the highest quality Painting, Singing, Walking & Sightseeing in the UK. Operating since 1997, we have built up wonderful contacts, a team of professional tutors, excellent local guides and well known locations. Over 60% are returning guests, rewarded by our loyalty discounts, and 70% are single travellers enjoying the company of like-minded fellow guests. We always include special details – singing with a local choir, painting in a private garden or walking off the beaten track, seeking out the cultural heart of a country.

Painting Holidays

Our painting holidays are a magical mix of idyllic locations, professional tutors and small groups of fellow artists. Our goal is to help you to achieve your painting potential, but to also enjoy a holiday with all the elements that entails – comfortable hotels with great service, delicious local food, a supportive, local tour manager, and some free time to go swimming or shopping. Painting holidays in Italy remain popular, and every year we introduce new locations and new tutors ensuring guests return to us, seeking new adventures.

Singing Holidays

We are one of the most experienced singing holiday operators in the UK and have been organising acapella group holidays since 2003. Our professional tutors believe that everyone, no matter what their level of skill, can enjoy the thrill of singing in harmony. It’s incredibly sociable - over 80% of our guests are single travellers. Singing together in a large group can be an empowering and spiritual experience with huge health benefits. We always try and sing with a local choir to further enrich your holiday.

Walking Holidays

It’s our professional tour guides that make our guided walking holidays stand out from the crowd. They will take you off the beaten track, to places you would never discover on your own. They are passionate, informed and have the local knowledge to enrich your experience. The company was founded on walking holidays in Spain, and after seventeen years, we have built up invaluable contacts in many locations. Whether you enjoy a ramble or a hike, there are walking grades to suit everyone.

Sightseeing Holidays

In recent years we have been asked to run sightseeing and cultural tours in the wonderful locations that we visit every year with our activity groups. Our Tour Leaders are passionate about where they live and want to share special places and authentic experiences with our guests. They’ll take you to places you might never discover by yourself – private gardens, lively tapas bars, colourful music shows, to meet artisan producers and marvel at the many architectural gems.
