NOTE: If you are planning a trip in your own car, head across to our Tour in Your Car page
Step 1, select your destination
Whether you are a wine buff, a historian, a romantic, or just enjoy hardcore driving roads, there is a driving tour to suit your style. Choose from the high mountain passes, waterfalls and glaciers of the Alps, the panoramic vistas and hilltop towns of Tuscany, or the vineyards and rolling hills of Provence. Each of our driving holidays takes you on a journey of discovery through the best parts of Europe, picking out the most scenic roads, incredible natural sights, and great dining options along the way.
Step 2, choose a car
When it comes to the cars we have you covered, with the very latest fleet of luxury and performance cars, anything from the sporty 718 Porsche Boxster up to the new Ferrari F8 Spider, Porsche GT3RS or Lamborghini Evo. Luxury saloons and SUVs are also available if you want to travel with space and style. For our full list of cars and the tours, they are available, head to our Luxury Car Hire page
Step 3, pick a preferred start date
The great thing about these drives is you are free to choose when you want to make the trip. There are naturally a few seasonal restrictions, for example, you cannot drive in the mountains during the winter, but besides these, you are free to decide when you want to travel. After sharing your preferences, we will check all availabilities and send you a no-obligation offer to think about. If you are happy to proceed, we can then lock in your trip for you. Note that some tours, such as the high mountain passes are seasonal, so keep a lookout for the "Availability" icon when considering a trip.
Arriving at the Start
You are now ready to begin your journey. All of our tours start with a meet and greet in some of the most beautiful cities in Europe. If you are heading for the Alps, choose between Geneva, Zurich, or Munich as a start point. If you want to tour around Tuscany, the romantic city of Florence will be where you begin. If it's the sunny South of France and Provence you are touring, then head to the jet-set resort of Cannes, directly on the Cote d'Azur. On arrival, check into your hotel, where your welcome pack and roadbook will be waiting.
After an evening in the city, the following morning, your car will be delivered directly to the hotel, and you will receive a full briefing and walk-through from one of our team, covering both the car and the scenic driving tour you are about to set out on. The entire drive is outlined in a detailed roadbook, and the route itself (including all stops for sights, coffees, and lunches along the way) is pre-programmed into your GPS to ensure a trouble-free drive.
Start your drive
It's now time to hit the road in style. Each day of driving picks out the best scenic routes which are programmed into your GPS, as well as suggested stops along the way, for sights, coffees, and lunch.
A well-researched drive will ensure you stay away from the busy A roads, and spend your time enjoying the scenic back roads, with the best stop points along the way.
Handpicked hotels on the way
As much as we love our roads, we know that a great trip is also about the hotels you stay at along the way. Having run these tours for the last 10 years, we know a thing or two about hotels.
That means we ensure you overnight at boutique luxury accommodation that offers a genuinely authentic experience, where you can enjoy friendly service, local foods, and those special touches.
Whether it's on the shoreline of Lake Como, or high up in glitzy ski resorts such as St Moritz, you can be sure your evenings will be as rewarding as the day you spend behind the wheel.
There are several other operators now offering driving tours that are very similar to Ultimate Drives, why not, it's such a great idea! However, it was Ultimate Drives that launched the concept of all-inclusive driving holidays back in 2010, and since then (with the benefit of feedback from more than 500 satisfied clients) we have been refining and improving our tours to guarantee you the very best driving experience.
Take a look through our tours and feel free to give us a call or drop us an inquiry at any time, we would be delighted to help further.
