About Us

A passion for cars,  breathtaking roads and alpine scenery, combined with fine dining experiences along the way. All of this became a driving force when Mark Heather decided to create Ultimate Drives in 2009.  Since then, the team at Ultimate Drives have welcomed driving enthusiasts from all over the world interested to explore what Europe has to offer. We now specialise in a range of exclusive European driving holidays, short breaks, group events and experiences, that take you from the mountain passes of the Swiss and Austrian Alps, to the Italian Lakes, the hills of Tuscany and sunny Cote d`Azur and Provence.

We always say to our customers, just choose your preferred destination, select the car, then let us take care of the rest. Have a look around our website, or try calling one of our team of advisors for more information.  We look forward to welcoming you sometime soon!
