Unearth the secrets of the past and trace the events that have helped shape the modern day on a guided history tour.
Most guided history tours have visits to fascinating museums along the way. However, some escorted history touring holidays are more specialised and focus on key historical events or themes, including battlefield tours.
Archaeological tours visit famous sites to uncover the mysteries and secrets of the ancient and classical world. Take a tour of Egypt to discover the great civilisation of Ancient Egypt, or explore classical Greece and learn about its influence on the Western world including art, maths and philosophy.
Local archaeologists and historians often accompany tours of key sites, and offer invaluable insight into landmark events which shaped the course of history.
