What travelers say about their
historical trips

Glorious - Given a New Perspective of History
By 5th-time traveler Jerry on 08/05/17
The Jordan extension is a must. This portion of my combined three tours was a combination of Ancient Israel and the religious heritage tour of Israel. Both guides were fantastic - giving the history of the region along with telling us about the cultural history in a non-offensive manner.
The Wonders of Ancient Israel
Guides make the tour!
By 2nd-time traveler Janet on 09/04/19
This tour was jam-packed with lots of interesting things to explore. The local tour guides for Cusco, Lima, and Machu Picchu were extremely knowledgeable, and enhanced the experience way beyond what we would have had if we had gone on our own.
Ancient Peru & Machu Picchu
This was a great trip!
By 4th-time traveler Dona on 10/04/18
Our tour guide Chris was extremely knowledgeable and couldn't have been more helpful. She pointed out places that we would not have seen otherwise and even as we were traveling from site to site gave us a history of the area and answered every question that the group asked.
Historic Germany: Berlin to Bavaria
This tour was an awesome summary of Egyptian culture and history.
By 3rd-time traveler Cindy on 02/13/20
We had an exceptional tour director who not only educated us but looked out for our health. The antiquities we toured were amazing and most in pristine shape. We learned an enormous amount about Egypt on this tour and I definitely recommend it to everyone who really wants to get the full flavor...
