Luxury Cultural & Historical Holidays | Private Tours

We believe that a destination comes alive when you hear about its history and experience its culture in all its richness and authenticity. Without history, everything is just scenery. We tailor-make luxury historical and cultural holidays and can provide you with engaging private guided experiences and behind the scenes bespoke tours to explore and understand the sites and monuments of history’s greatest civilizations. From remote sites of antiquity, imposing medieval towns and castles, exploring age-old communities unchanged by time to private tours of Unesco world heritage sites – below are just a few examples of the popular cultural and historical holidays we can craft for you, which will showcase these unique destinations in a new perspective. In Asia: Hike to the iconic Tiger’s Nest monastery in Bhutan, rise at dawn in Luang Prabang in Laos to see the mendicant monks gathering alms in the streets, hot air balloon over the Sagar Pagodas in Inle Lake, Myanmar, take a sunset tour of the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia, discover the floating markets in the ancient Unesco town of Hoi An, Vietnam, admire the rich history & majestic architecture of some of the over 100 forts in the princely state of Rajasthan, enjoy a private performance by a Geisha in the Gion district of Kyoto, take a private guided tour of the ancient Buddhist temples of Borobudur in Java, visit the Terracotta Army Mausoleum of the first Emperor of China in Xi’an. In the Middle East: Explore the iconic sights of the Nile as far as Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, take a behind the scenes tour of Petra – the famous archaeological site in Jordan, walk thru the back lanes of the exotic Medina in Marrakesh.
