Grand Tour 2019/20

Every day is a winding road…

For over 30 years we have been organising exclusive motoring adventures for great people with great cars. Everything from Grand Tours to bespoke private tours to driving weekends in France. Our signature event, the annual Grand Tour is now in its 35th year. In 2015 we organised the Highland Tour, a two day adventure through the breathtaking Scottish countryside that preceded and was part of the 2015 Concours of Elegance at Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. (The Highland Tour was awarded Best Tour of 2015 at the Octane International Historic Motoring Awards.) We pride ourselves on outstanding driving routes, a relaxed ‘party’ atmosphere and a long held reputation for attention to detail.

The RM Alpine Tour 2018

Mulhouse to Monaco, in time for the Monaco Historic Grand Prix

This year’s Alpine Tour, which was run in conjunction with RM Auctions, was great fun, and included a three day tour through the Swiss and French Alps before the teams arrived in Monaco for a fabulous weekend of top-drawer hospitality for The Monaco Historic Grand Prix.

Road Trip – USA


Our American adventure was a spectacular success, taking in the unforgettable scenery of northern California including Napa, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite before we arrived in Monterey in time for the highlights of Monterey Car Week and the Pebble Beach Concours. Our next US adventure will be in 2019.

Who are we?

Jeremy Jackson Sytner and Chris Bucknall have been organising tours for over 25 years. The philosophy behind the success of their tours is simple – focus on the people, not the cars (although if you look at the photos of previous events, you would be forgiven for thinking otherwise). We think of our events as parties on wheels (we leave the regularities, the 6am starts and the 3 star hotels to others). The Grand Tour is all about having fun, and bringing some good old-fashioned style to proceedings. The hotels are always the best in the regions we travel through, generally intimate, rural castles which we often take over. The menus, the wine and the hospitality are all planned with care and passion, and we make sure everyone arrives at the hotels in plenty of time to enjoy them.

All our events are underpinned by the kind of attention to detail that only comes with decades of experience. We pore over every detail to ensure our tours run seamlessly, from legal and insurance matters, to luggage arrangements and dietary requirements. Lisa Willoughby and Sara Headlam are now an integral part of the GTO Events team, helping us to achieve our aim of exceeding the expectations of guests with high expectations.

Jeremy Jackson Sytner & Chris Bucknall
Co-founders of The Grand Tour

Now in its eighteenth year, The Grand Tour is one of the most successful motoring events of its kind in the world. Over the years it has attracted teams from around the world (including Australia, the USA, Nigeria, France, Portugal, Belgium, Holland and Sweden). The event has been started by such luminaries as Jeremy Clarkson and Elizabeth Hurley, and there has even been a tv programme made about it by The Luxury Channel.

In addition to a growing number of tours under the Grand Tour label, GTO Events organises bespoke private tours for individuals and companies (this year we organised a tour to the Monaco Historic Grand Prix for a Ferrari dealership). In 2015 we organised The Highland Tour, part of The Concours of Elegance at The Palace of Holyroodhouse, for which we were awarded Tour of the Year at Octane’s International Historic Motoring Awards.
