Welcome to Reality and Beyond

Reality & Beyond specialises in tailor-made tours to all parts of Central and Eastern Europe, to countries we have explored and enjoyed for many years. Our philosophy is to bring out the richness and diversity of these, often neglected, regions where against all odds, strong artistic and intellectual traditions remain.

Reality and Beyond in 2019

We are delighted to announce that 2019 will see Bronwen Riley joining us to share her extensive experience as a lecturer and guide.

From 24th May - 1st June, we will be travelling to Romania - a 9-day tour to include Bucharest, the painted monasteries and Transylvania.

Bronwen is also leading a short trip to Hadrian's Wall from 13-16 June, when you will be able to stay in the privately-owned Naworth Castle.

Meanwhile for those who equally wish to take advantage of the beautiful spring in Central Europe and the Balkans we now have a wonderful and highly-recommended circle of tour organisers who are top quality operators – we are happy to suggest itineraries that are tried, tested and exciting:

Kosovo, Albania, Bulgaria, the Macedonian part of Greece
