I totally understand your preference for travelling in January. Unfortunately given that it's winter in Europe most of our January departures are long haul and therefore it would be a stretch to describe them as short breaks (although it is all subjective I suppose). Hopefully as we grow and increase the number of tours on our books we'll be able to offer more January departures to nearer destinations.
With regards to the tours you mentioned I do know that there have been quite a few posts over the last few months with feedback about our Marrakesh tour (the search tab can be found by clicking the "quick links" icon at the top left of the page). You might also be able to find some info on our Berlin tour as well (my mother went last year and liked it), though you won't find anyone who's been on our Bologna tour as our first one ever doesn't depart until this October.
