About Tour & Explore

We first opened our award winning travel agency in central Croydon in 1948. From 1948 – 2005, we were a regional call centre for Wallace Arnold Tours of Leeds. It was in 2005 that Wallace Arnold merged with Shearings Holidays, and we then focused our energies on developing Coachholidays.com. As a result, we are now the leading coach holidays website in the UK, with significant continual growth year on year.

It was then suggested that a second website be constructed to cater better for, enhancing the exclusive escorted tours. And here we are today, proudly running Tour and Explore, a site with unrivalled choice of carefully selected operators, which enables our customers to find their very own window to the world.
As well as our proud 69 years of history, we are also members of ABTA, the Coach Tourism Council, The Confederation of Passenger Transport and travel agent members of AITO.


A Final Thought!

“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money; that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the things it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot, it cannot be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.”
- John Ruskin
