Historical Cross Periods Tours
Every location has a history, a goldmine of stories and secrets to share about the conflicts, events and encounters that happen within its boundaries. In recognition of this we offer a variety of tours that explore these collections of moments in exciting, often lesser known locations around the world, from Belarus to Malta, Tunisia to Nepal. These eclectic tours are often accompanied by two expert guides instead of one and they will cox and box to tell their stories, culminating in most interesting and fascinating experiences.
All of our forthcoming Scheduled Cross-Periods / Modern Tours are listed below.
