To date I have been on two amazing driving tours.
The first tour was from Folkestone to France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and St. Moritz, Switzerland where we were based. From Switzerland we had trips out to Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein. The journey back was direct from St. Moritz through France and back the the UK.
The second tour was from St. Malo through the South of France ending up in Monaco for the F1 Grand Prix. From Monaco we travelled to Italy, Switzerland, Germany and France.
Each tour to Europe was meticulously planned to ensure we saw the best locations, stayed at some wonderful hotels and most importantly driven some of the finest roads along the way.
Here is a list of the finest roads I have driven with a map of the route and in most instances a video too.
The Col de la Bonette is one of the most famous roads in the Alps, due to the fact that it is, at 2807M, the highest road in Europe.read more
The Furka Pass is a stunning pass in the central Swiss Alps, part of the "Big 3" interconnected passes close by to Andermatt.read more
As you turn onto the Hahntennjoch pass, you know it's going to be special. The Tarmac is near perfect and that's exactly what the run to the top is.read more
The great thing about the Klausen pass is there is a highway alternative, therefore the traffic on the pass is really restricted to locals or driving enthusiasts.read more
The Route Napoléon begins in Grasse and continues all the way to Grenoble over 150km away, tracing its way through both the Alps Maritimes and the Alps.read more

The San Bernadino Pass may only be 45km but is one of the most beautiful and "smoothest" mountain passes in the Alps and should not be missed.read more
The Stelvio Pass is the third highest in the Alps at 2757M and most dramatic mountain passes to drive in the European Alps.read more
