Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
July and with school holidays starting, touring at GB Motorhome Tours takes a break, leaving families to fill the campsites across Europe whilst enjoying their summer holidays. Over the last month, five GB Motorhome Tours have taken place; these have ranged in destinations from Scotland in the North, to the Atlantic Coast of France in the West, to Poland in the East and Turkey in the South, plus Germany in the middle. Some reviews from these tours follow, further reviews can be found on the GB Motorhome Tours website reviews page.
Oban Campsite, Scotland June 2022
‘A well put together tour through the beautiful countryside of Scotland. It was great to meet up with some old friends and to meet up with new friends as well. A great tour.’ Mike and Penny Summers – Scotland Highlands and Royal Deeside tour – June 2022
Camping in Baynac, The French Atlantic Coast tour July 2022
‘This is our first trip with GB Motorhome Tours. John and Karen made us very welcome. The places we visited were interesting and informative. We would be happy to travel with GB Motorhome Tours in the future.’ Keith and Julie Seddon- The French Atlantic Coast tour June/July 2022
Malbork Castle Campsite, Poland June 2022
‘Our first time on a guided tour and we have loved every moment of it. Thank you Ron & Sue for putting together a brilliant itinerary and always being there if and when needed.’ Pauline & Gerry Gibson – Poland tour June 2022
Arriving in Turkey through its modern border crossing June 2022
‘A fantastic tour in a fantastic country. The Turkish speaking tour leaders (Nurcan and Kevin) were brilliant. If you get the chance to take your motorhome to Turkey, grab it with both hands, you won’t regret it.’ Ken Starmer – Western Turkey tour May/June 2022
Rhine in Flames Spectacular Show July 2022

At GB Motorhome Tours, continental touring starts again towards the end of August; with the Croatian Highlights tour, followed shortly after by the Northern Italy’s Treasures tour and from mid-September the Cyprus and More tour. Each tour offers a mix of sightseeing, adventure, group meals and organised camping. For the Cyprus and More tour, a high degree of adventure can be expected. Being around 2,500 miles from the UK and just 70 miles from Israel, travelling to Cyprus by motorhome is a real adventure. Until recently it was difficult to tour in Cyprus; being a divided island, the two halves are independent of each other and have traditionally not allowed foreign vehicles to cross their borders to the ‘other’ side. However, this has now changed, enabling those on the Cyprus and More tour to look forward to fully discovering and experiencing both sides of this intriguing island. Look out for reports from the tour in newsletters later this year.
Before then, back in the UK and throughout the summer, GB Motorhome Tours have stands at two of the upcoming outdoor motorhome shows. Do come along and see us, where a number of the Tour Directors will be on hand to discuss tours and other aspects of motorhome travel.
For continental touring, keep in mind that whilst Covid-19 regulations for travel are reducing, they are not yet all fully removed. In particular, France still retains Covid-19 entry requirements for UK citizens. With most motorhomers at least passing through France on-route for their continental travel, do ensure you meet their entry requirements. For fully vaccinated travellers, you should have proof of this available for possible inspection, either a printed certificate or electronic NHS Covid pass. The printed NHS certificate is obtained from www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-pass/get-your-covid-pass-letter . The certificate is valid for 6 months and is posted to your home address, allow 5 days for it to arrive. For un-vaccinated travellers, a certificate confirming a negative PCR test result (taken within 72 hours of departure) or an antigen test result (taken within 48 hours of departure) must be available for inspection. For the purpose of travel in the EU, fully vaccinated means having received two vaccinations and a third (booster) dose, or two vaccinations of which the second dose was received within the last 270 days before entering the country.
Looking ahead to autumn next year, our all new Swiss Magic tour has just been added to the GB Motorhome Tours website and is now available to book. Throughout this tour, enjoy the natural beauty of the Swiss Lakes and Mountains; relax on lake cruises, travel on the world’s steepest cog railway and marvel at the amazing scenery as you tour through the heart of Switzerland, seeing the very best of its Alpine scenery.
Enjoy your summer and we look forward to travelling with you soon. Feel free to contact us if there is anything you wish to ask about a tour.
