d) We take photos and write a travel blog about each of our trips telling other couples about the great places we find



Your Results:

Mostly A - Luxury and indulgent. Your romantic getaway style is all about luxury and enjoying the finer things in life. You demand round-the-clock-service, plenty of pampering and the best of everything. Your holidays together are very important and symbolise your success as a couple and all you have achieved. Whilst luxury resorts are undeniably romantic and highly recommended by The Romantic Tourist it is also sometimes good to try things outside of our romantic getaway comfort zone. If a shared dorm in a hostel is a step too far (and it probably is for us too!) then maybe you could try a small boutique hotel or a more activity based trip where your focus is on sharing new experiences together and having fun discovering new things you like and probably some you don't! 

Mostly B - Private & Secluded. For you a romantic getaway is all about spending time alone together and finding intimate and private hideaways away from the rest of the world. You love nothing more than spending a lost weekend together exploring a remote corner of your chosen destination before retiring to your secluded self catering property to prepare a romantic dinner for two over a bottle of wine before connecting over a late night game of scrabble. Unlike our luxury orientated A's you shy away from resorts and serviced hospitality but whilst The Romantic Tourist is all couples spending one on one time together we also think that everyone should experience the luxury of great a hotel, it's just about finding the right one for you. Anticipating your every need when you need it whilst being almost imperceptibly present through our the rest of your stay, there are many hotels who have unobtrusive service down to a fine art, perfectly catering for couples wanting privacy. 

Mostly C - Active & Adventurous. Your romantic getaways make most people exhausted just hearing about them. Not a couple satisfied with sun loungers and the latest celebrity autobiography purchased from the airport bookshop, your trips are carefully constructed and planned events, ticking off the next challenge in your long list of travel adventures or a chance to experience a shared favourite hobby in another part of the world. Whether you are keen divers seeking the next great dive site or just adventurous by nature there are plenty of great romantic adventures and trips for you to share. All we suggest is that you occasionally take time out to also enjoy a less adrenalin filled moment such as a romantic dinner, or rose petal bath whilst you relax those undoubtably aching muscles. 

Mostly D - Alternative & Bohemian. You are a couple who see travel as an essential part of your relationship and prize new experiences and the unique above gourmet restaurants and a heated outdoor pool. For you romance is not about expensive gifts or bunches of flowers but sharing memories and meeting new people. You are always on the hunt for your next romantic getaway discovery whether that be a lesser known boutique hotel, whose owners will later become 'odd-parents' to your next child or a local herbal remedy for insect bites. Whilst you may always see yourself as a Romantic Traveller and never a Romantic Tourist, why not allow yourself to take the occasional romantic holiday with a full suitcase and a few home comforts. You never know, perhaps you both would secretly love a week at a beachfront Caribbean resort but neither of you is brave enough to say it! 

Mostly a mixture - If you don't categorically fall into any of the above romantic getaway styles you are probably a couple who enjoy a variety of holiday destinations, accommodations and experiences. Our Romantic Butler service is perfect for finding the right romantic break for any occasion, and for whatever travel style takes your fancy at that time.

The Romantic Tourist is dedicated to giving couples the best choice of romantic packages for every romantic travel style. Choose from our Romantic Experiences and find the perfect style for your next romantic getaway.
