History based travel & tours

Historian Stephen Ambrose has often said that the best way to understand history is to study the places where it was made. This sentiment is shared by myself plus thousands of history buffs worldwide who look forward to setting aside their books and stepping into the shadows of history while traveling. There are countless historical hot spots in the world and www. is a great place to start the hunt for the historical tour of a lifetime.

This website is a collection of many specialty trips offered by a wide range of travel companies. The easy to use drop down box will help you identify that perfect history or other themed excursion. After you have located the tour then I suggest that you contact your favorite travel agent for reservation assistance.

Happy travels! Email your travel questions to
