History & Archaeology


A step back in time
We understand that history does not need to be confined to the four walls of a dark and stuffy museum. History can be enjoyed and appreciated via live performance, on walking tours, or on protected heritage sites. History can be stumbled upon in the most unlikely of places and strikes you at times as incredibly moving and fascinating. We love to learn on our trips, here are a few that might just pique your interest.
