History Tours

Your group tour through history

History Tours

Embark on a journey through time and visit the very places where our heroes once walked. We will bring your group back to the battle lines, the temples or the ancient cities where your favorite part of history once played out.
Has your group studied the development of classical art and architecture in the context of democracy and science in ancient Greece? Maybe you would like to reconstruct the journey of one of the history's big names or visit the halls where the kings and men of power discussed the future, our present. Would you like to follow the Vikings from Scandinavia to their major settlements and influences throughout western Europe?
Work with our team to design a tour that enlivens your historical interest and immerses you in the cultures that both foster and inherit these memories.

Example Tour

To illustrate what a tour with a specific theme could look like we have chosen to go through one of many itinerary combinations that can be done around WW2. This specific tour is rather long and takes you from Amsterdam to London via Berlin, Krakow, Prague, Munich, Strasbourg, Normandy and Paris.
All depending on which part of the World-War history that is of interest the tour can be designed in a shorter or more extensive version and/or focusing on different areas of Europe.

Customization

We say it, we do it! Our track record proves it! With group leaders- we provide the ability to choose the broad themes and the specific activities. We provide the best opportunities with the friendliest team! Given the custom nature of our tours, we can set up workshops and other activities to enhance the purpose of the tour. It is also possible to extend or shorten parts of the travel schedule, but most groups tend to travel between 10-15 days, all depending on the destinations and budget.
Please contact us so we can chat things over and make the most of your tour. We look forward to designing a tour that is personal and as unique as your group is!
