Ellen Smith Tours

In 1900, Ellen Gilson & Lund Smith started a haulage and passenger service between Littleborough and Rochdale with horsedrawn wagonettes. One of the earliest passenger adventures was a holiday tour to London, Brighton & Eastbourne some 20 years later. Today, Ellen Smith Tours do things a little differently to Ellen & Lund, but we have those family values at heart in everything we do. We are well-known for offering quality, value-for-money, day excursions and coach holidays in our area and beyond.

We have a dedicated Groups Team whose job it is to inspire you with ideas and suggestions. They have the knowledge and expertise to tailor-make an itinerary built around your specific needs, whether they be generic or special interest.

How we work with you
Step 1 – Choose your Destination
Tell us if you have a destination in mind. We can take you anywhere for any length of stay, be it a 1-day excursion or a 2-week holiday. If you are unsure of where to go, we can suggest destinations for you and send you sample itineraries that have worked for other groups in the past.

Step 2 – Choose your Hotel
Whatever your preference and budget, we can find a hotel to suit you. We work with all kinds of properties, from 2-star budget hotels to 5-star luxury, from country house hotels to traditional family-owned seaside hotels. We can arrange accommodation on a bed & breakfast only basis, or include lunch or dinner – or both. Some hotels also have drinks packages on offer and entertainment for groups, just ask us for details.

Step 3 – Choose your Itinerary
Once you have decided on your destination and hotel, we work with you to plan your itinerary. We ask about your interests and then make suggestions of attractions and places to visit. These can include castles, houses & gardens, museums, guided tours, themed breaks, shopping trips, rail journeys, lake cruises, restaurants, coffee stops, and much, much more.
