Great Cultural Experience ++

Holocaust Landscapes

The trip was very well coordinated and there were great experiences in every country and every city. This was our second trip with the Cultural Experience and would recommend and do another.

Cultural Experience always provide first class tour guides, often from a military background. This tour had Lt-Colonel Mathias Strohn. From the German Army. A fluent English speaker and professional historian he explained quite complex issues extremely clearly. The second service quality is their ability to create a good harmony in the group. The tour manager was Shaun Smith who did much to achieve this by working hard in the background. They also limit the numbers to twenty to achieve a harmonious atmosphere. Result: a great tour.

An excellent tour with efficient planning and historical context ++

The tour was well planned; although the geography and the timeline of the Peninsula War, and we had to go backwards and forwards in time, this was understandable in terms of efficiency

The leader was an excellent 'lecturer'. He made clear the important parts of what needed to be understood, and answered questions fully. If he didn't know the answer he said so

The hotels used were of a very high standard. In only one hotel (Elvas) did I feel that the room was lacking anything. It was a pleasure to have bidets in every hotel, although some hotels positioned them very strangely in the bathroom

Our tour manager was very efficient. I had no reason to put her to the test, unlike one or two other tour members, but they appeared to have been well served as a result of her intervention

Hi John, thank you for your feedback. You are correct, sometimes because we have to go back and forward in time when discussing certain things for logistical reasons but we are glad that you enjoyed the tour and hope to see you again in 2019

A quite enjoyable holiday, good companions +

Italy During the First World War

Good leader hotels OK, but food disappointing especially breakfasts. The meal out on the first night was poor both for food and wine.

This is my seventh (and eighth) tour with Cultural Experience, so obviously I like them. Their emphasis on historical, especially military, tours aligns very nicely with my interests. Setting up tours with them is relatively easy, but they really shine when asked to coordinate two tours taken (nearly) consecutively. I don?t like to ?cross the pond? for only one trip, so they have worked out flights, transfers, and hotels for me on several occasions, and they have all worked well.

Enjoyable trip with very knowledgable guide - highly recommended. ++

Wellington in Spain

A well-organised holiday, with comfortable hotels, good food (if a little short of veg, but that's the Spanish way!) and a friendly and helpful driver. The tour manager made sure everything ran smoothly, including supplying us with plenty of water to make sure we didn't suffer too much from the heat.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, clearly explaining both the background to the conflict and how each battle unfolded, linking it all to the landscape, weaponry and tactics. His army background was a bonus, and he was happy to answer all sorts of questions about tactics, daily life in Wellington's army, etc. We had enough free time to wander around the various towns and walled cities we visited, if we wanted to, or time to sit in cafe's and bars chilling out if that took our fancy.

Hi Sonia, thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the tour. All of your comments will be passed to everyone involved in the tour.

The Cultural Experience is Real History ++

Kaliningrad: Russia's forgotten Exclave

The Cultural Experience always provides exactly what the tourists and participants want and expect, which is real onsite explanations of history where it actually occurred. If you want to know what happened on the battlefield, you will be shown where it happened and, more often than not, why it happened.

Very good service, well-prepared tour leader able to explain the ground very clearly. Excellent local guide with full knowledge of her area.
The only change I would make would be to write in some time in Gdansk, probably at the end of the trip. There are surviving fortifications from 1807, a WW2 museum and other historical locations. We were lucky to see Westerplatte, the extra time would enable this to be included in the programme as a regular location rather than a lucky addition. (A much appreciated 'lucky addition', well done C.E!)

I took out of the experience what i needed to, orgnaisation on trip poor. -

The Holocaust: Poland and the Nazi Death Camps

I was very excited by the service that i received prior to leaving but the trip was disappointing in parts due to the lack of organisation by Cultural experience, the guides did their best in bad situations and instructions we were given were not followed through and it was a disappointment.
