Why not join a tour led by a guest specialist who can help you understand and appreciate your chosen destination or activity in greater depth? Working with a team of carefully chosen specialist lecturers, all of whom have a deep knowledge and passionate enthusiasm for their subject, we have developed a range of specialist led holidays all over the world.
You could enjoy travelling to the fabled highlands of Ethiopia, to explore the rock-cut churches of Tigray and Lalibela as well as the obelisks, temples and palaces of Axum, the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. Or why not discover the fascinating but little known sites of Maidum, Amarna, Beni Hassan and Abydos in Egypt’s Nile Valley, ignored by mainstream tourism but full of interest for enthusiasts?
In Sicily you could enjoy in-depth visits not just to the most famous Greek and Roman sites, such as the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and the Greek theatre of Taormina, but also to remote and rarely visited sites in the rugged highlands.
As well as specialist history tours you could travel in the company of an expert astronomer to the Iceland, in search of the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). As the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with almost negligible levels of light pollution and positioned on the edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland is the ideal place to view the Aurora Borealis, described by some as the most spectacular natural phenomenon in the world.
Our expert astronomer has great experience in aurora-tracking, making sure we're in the right place at the right time not just to witness the show, but also to explain the phenomenon and give tips on how to film or photograph it.
