The leading experts in planning custom-designed travel arrangements to suit your own group needs, curriculum and budget. Your trip - your way.
Choose any of Mariden's tours, add the cities, sites and museums that you like. Choose the duration of your trip and let us know. In less then 3 working days, you will get your customized program back, designed for your group only.
Your group will stay in the museum or on site as long as they like and not be forced to follow any other group. We like to surprise our travellers with hidden places only the locals know. Other than the main monuments in each city, we will give you fascinating stories about the local people and their tradition, which you can not find in any guidebooks or on any regular student or adult tour. Other than Notre Dame or the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Mariden will bring you to the courtyards of the noble houses of Marais District, Les Hales food market or pastry stores in Versailles.
Every traveler to Rome will see the Colosseum inside. With Mariden your travellers will walk along the corridors once used by gladiators marching to the stage "I moratori te Saluti".
Instead of the slogan "nobody beats our price",Mariden believes in a "Better way to Travel"
Having the shortest possible flights with guaranteed departure dates and named carrier, instead of waiting for last minute booking worth more them just the lower airfare.
Staying in centrally located named downtown hotels, in walking diatnce to the main to the sites and monuments, in comfortable two bed rooms, cost a bit more then relocated hotels in suburbs, but it's priceless.
Having a variety of dishes for the dinner and open buffet breakfast instead of "healthy continetal breakfast" is what Mariden organize for you.
Creating your own tour pace of daily activities, is far more important than taking just "the lowest price".
Traveling to Europe with Mariden, you will explore Euro-Rail, the fastest and the best transportation system in Europe. For Canadian travellers this will be another great adventure.
Why to spend 4-5 hours in the Motor coach between Florence and Rome on windy highway when you can cover the distance between the cities in just an hour and 32 minutes almost sound-proof train in luxury sofa-seat.
Tha last suprprise from Mariden:
For the connection between the main big cities like: London to Rome, Paris to Rome, Munich to Paris, Barcelona to Rome, mariden organize a short two hours flights instead of long sleepr train connections in crammed 6-berth cabins.
Hope to see you on board
