Travelling in a foreign land by road is perhaps the best way to see the land and its culture up close. It is not a new approach to tourism but the preferred way for many travelers. It gives them more control and gives them a more authentic experience of the foreign country. Como Travel has put a luxurious variation to this basic theme. The variation includes a heavy dose of speed with luxury. They have put together a package called the “Elite Car and Castle Tour” for those who would like to visit the old world British castles and love their fast cars.

The proposed tour will take off from London and the group will not exceed more than 30 people. Everyone will pick up their car of choice and head out for a three week tour of England and Scotland.
Como Travel which is based in Australia has arranged for five star luxury accommodations on the way and two days of race track driving on the way. Drivers, if they feel like, have the option of swapping cars along the way.
