About The Cultural Experience
The Cultural Experience based in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England, was formed by Alan Rooney in 2009 after turning his passion for history and travel into a business proposition.
The Company now employs a small team of travel professionals who plan and organise over 70 tours a year and has access to many more historians and academics to help deliver and guide the tours on the ground.
The company ethos is based on three principles:
- Using sound research and planning to create a three dimensional version of history (human, time and space) - and to place the colourful characters and exciting events concerned at the very locations they came together.
- Using experienced expert guides, chosen for their ability to pull these three dimensions together in an engaging and entertaining manner – so you can virtually ‘touch and feel’ what it would have been like on the day.
- Putting all this in the cultural context of the local countryside, customs and cuisine - in a relaxed but organised way.
This is what The Cultural Experience is all about providing a well-planned quality themed tour which is informative, informal and inclusive – aimed at both enthusiasts and those with a general interest in history and travel. If you cannot find your ideal tour here, we will devise a bespoke one for you - just call us on 0345 475 1815.
