History Tours

Travel back in time and discover the secrets of the past on a history-themed tour. Most escorted tours will include some element of history and culture, whether it’s a visit to an important temple or a trip to a museum, but there is also a huge array of more specialised tours covering everything from Ancient Greece to the Cold War. You’ll meet local archaeologists and historians, visit key sites and gain a deeper understanding of your chosen period, accompanied by expert guides and fellow enthusiasts. Our featured holidays include epic journeys along the old Silk Road, archaeological expeditions on the river Nile, fascinating Second World War battlefield tours, and plenty more besides.
