History and culture holidays

Introduction

From the Pyramids to the Parthenon, the Silk and Spice Routes to the Suez Canal, local history and culture add a rich flavour to any travel experience. Whether you want to explore the great opera houses of Sydney and Beijing, or the Palaeolithic cave paintings of France and Spain, our history and culture specialists can help you find your ideal holiday.

Our unrivalled local knowledge and fabulous contacts on the ground deliver tailor-made themed excursions and multi-centre tours and cruises. Or if you prefer, we’ll advise you on the best local tours and destinations, and send you on a highly personalised self-drive or walking tour.

Venture deep into Mayan Mexico, mountainous Machu Picchu, the Mekong, the Maharaja palaces of India, Imperial Russia and China, or any other destination that piques your curiosity.

Wherever you choose to travel, our history and culture specialists will keep you enthralled and entertained.
