History Tours

Our history tours trace Europe’s history from Roman times through to the Cold War

Britain and France form the core of our history tours. The Union between England and Scotland can be explored as can the rivalry between England and France during the period from Medieval times to the Napoleonic Wars. Germany is one of the most popular destinations for history departments and our tours cover both the WW2 period and the Cold War era which followed. In the south of Germany we can visit Munich and Nuremburg, two cities which were crucial in the rise of the Nazi party. Russia’s turbulent history can be seen in Moscow where we see the Kremlin and Lenin’s mausoleum, but also in St. Petersburg where the Tsars ruled and where the 1917 Revolution began.
