So what makes travel enjoyable and rewarding? Fascinating places revealed by knowledgable guides accompanied by small groups of like-minded passengers, that's what! And that's exactly what we offer at Roots.


Small group travel is our passion. Travel the length and breadth of a country in a small group and you will see much more, experience much more and learn much more about it and the unusual things that make the country tick. Travelling in small groups helps us show you the highlights but also allows us to get you off the beaten track. Join us to explore the beauty of England, its fabulous landscapes, its fascinating history and its unique culture, places that will inspire, thrill and invigorate you in equal measure.


Roots was founded by Matt Hayes back in 2001 to provide opportunities for students attending a Cambridge-based English language school to experience the UK's wide variety of tourism and cultural attractions. Later Roots expanded to offer guided tours to all overseas visitors to Cambridge, and today our passengers are of all ages, come from all over the world and from all walks of life.


Over time we have boiled down our tours to visit destinations that fascinate everyone, young or old. The tours are carefully planned and diligently researched to guarantee an enjoyable and informative day out. Your time is precious, we know that, so we aim to deliver each tour spot on each and every time. And along the way your welfare is our utmost concern so all travel obeys strict EU legislation on driving rules and passenger safety and we only use well-maintained, reliable and comfortable transport licensed by the local transport authorities.


While you are here in Cambridge please come and join us, there's much more to discover than you may think.
