Welcome to the Breakaway Travel Blog!

If you love to travel to undiscovered, off-the-beaten path places across the globe, you’re in the right spot. We specialize in sending clients on relaxed overseas getaways where they can walk, cycle, trek or barge through the back roads of some 30 countries, including Italy, France, Greece and Great Britain and as far as Nepal, Africa and South America.

We believe a country is best seen in the open air and not through a tour bus window and that the most authentic experiences are had when you can travel at your own pace, stopping to immerse yourself in local culture at cafes, historic sites and by chatting with the locals as you go on your way.

But the best part of our tours is that while you feel like you’re on your own, you’re actually fully supported by our staff who are always just a phone call away. We take care of all the details, including transportation, accommodations at charming inns, meals and moving luggage from hotel to hotel, allowing you to focus on the adventure at hand. With the option of fully-supported independent tours, self-guided tours for the more experienced traveler or guided and group tours, we offer something for everyone, no matter your age or fitness level.

We hope our blog will offer useful information for traveling overseas, updates on our tours, the countries we travel to and the travel industry overall, as well some of our own insight gained over the years as dedicated travelers ourselves. So please add us to your blogroll or subscribe by email or RSS feed and stay tuned for the best in travel off the beaten path. And feel free to comment on any of our posts—we want to hear your feedback! Happy travels.
