Classic Car Tours International was formed in 2001 by Brian Thorley, a Francophile, with a passion for both classic cars and modern sports cars. His first sports car was a Swallow Doretti, bought when he was still an undergraduate at Manchester University, and in 1971 he bought his first Lotus Elan. Thorley’s intimate knowledge of France and his interest in French lifestyle serves him well. He leads tours through some of the prettiest villages in France, both on and off the beaten track. You can expect to encounter stunning chateaux, villas and interesting museums catering for every taste; beautiful gardens, art galleries, abbeys, churches and other historic monuments, wine caves and other fascinating visitor attractions.
