I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was well planned, well organised and well delivered. The sites we visited were fascinating places, very well chosen, and the hotels perfectly appropriate. Alan had laid on everything perfectly, he guided us all most tactfully, and coped with any difficulties with persistence and a sense of humour! Well done Alan!

In particular our expert Andy Fear was a treasure. Immensely knowledgeable, he was able to to communicate his enthusiasm and passion for the Roman period to all of us in an engaging and thought-provoking manner. We all learned so much from him. I shall certainly enjoy attending tours with Andy in the future

Overall, and thoroughly enjoyable and cultural experience!

Fascinating, well thought out trip ++

Hadrian and The Roman Army In The North Tour

A really well thought out holiday with a great guide, not only ready to answer questions but also to encourage discussion and debate. Hadrian's Wall is a stunning location and this trip takes in all the main sites, but some less usual ones as well. Thoroughly recommend.

The English Civil War 1643 - 46 Tour

The overall experience; coping with changes required by Covid regulations and the postponement of the tour from the time it was originally planned last year; providing additional services such as booking additional hotel stays.

The Burma Campaign 1942-1945 Tour

In almost every respect the organisation of this tour was excellent. The itinerary was carefully and well planned to cover the key aspects of the retreat in 1942 and re-capture of Burma in 1945. I'm sure that it would have been a good tour anyway, but the addition of Robert Lyman as a last minute...

In almost every respect the organisation of this tour was excellent. The itinerary was carefully and well planned to cover the key aspects of the retreat in 1942 and re-capture of Burma in 1945. I'm sure that it would have been a good tour anyway, but the addition of Robert Lyman as a last minute substitute provided for the group an expert historian in this field to lead our study, who was also a superb extempore speaker. A rather disparate group gelled to a quite astonishing extent. The hotels were very good and the long distances travelled were accomplished as comfortably as possible. This specialist tour company deserves the highest recommendations.

Fantastic tour fantastic organisation, hotels etc., and with a great group, and the stand in guide Robert Lyman was excellent. The tour was more of a pilgrimage for me as my father fought and died in Burma in 1944 and I have been waiting for the opportunity to do this for years. Yes, I would definitely consider The cultural experience in the future if I plan any similar tours. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime !

The Zulu War Tour

Ian Knight, once again, an inspiring tour leader and authority on the Zulu War. Such a friendly group too. South Africa itself is a gem.
