Historical themed escorted holidays

Forays into the past are perfectly matched with some of our already existing cultural experiences, including gastronomic delights and carnival atmospheres across Europe, which is why we have created this dedicated collection of rail tours. Now you can find each of our itineraries that combine such unmissable sightseeing opportunities in one place.

These informative experiences are the best way to explore some of history's most important figures and events; from the poignant memorials and battlefields of World War One to treading in the regal footsteps of the British Raj in vibrant India. So whether you discover the private life of Winston Churchill and walk the halls of his childhood home or follow the path of Jesus' apostle James, on our Madrid, Santiago & the Way of James tour, there is something for every budding history fanatic. Not only is each tour insightful and full of detail but includes all the usual wonderful accommodation and fantastic excursions our customers have come to expect.

Prof K Dyer
5 stars
“We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It visited some very interesting locations that were well integrated. The introductions were very good, especially the one on the canal trip. The visiting academic's talk after dinner came at a rather sleepy point when most people were not at their most receptive. We were sorry not to have had more free time in both Manchester and Newcastle to extend the context of the tour.
