About Norman Allen Group Travel
Norman Allen Group Travel (NAGT) is a long established, privately owned and independent company, exclusively involved in group travel and dedicated to providing high quality British, Irish, European and Worldwide tours by coach and by air.
We are proud of our long history and are firmly committed to the principles of excellent service, innovation and high quality touring.
This small business, Microtouring Ltd, travelled to then distant destinations such as Yugoslavia and Norway, a country still close to our hearts. Norman recalls that by the 1960s a 10 day tour to Switzerland was selling for just £26 and coaches were still being hoisted by crane on board ferries to cross the English Channel.
In 1972, by now highly respected as a touring specialist, he established Norman Allen Group Travel Advisory Service.
During the 1980s the company moved into the new era of computing. It was the early systems developed in house that further consolidated the company's long held reputation for innovation and attention to detail.
In the mid 1990s markets were expanded with sister company Greencastle Travel being founded to provide group tours by air, as well as dedicated departments established to offer a specialist service to private group travel organisers and to overseas tour operators. Greencastle Group Tours remains a trading name of Norman Allen Group Travel Ltd.
