Welcome to Historica Tours
Historica has been running specialised tours in European cities for several years, catering for those interested in exploring their European heritage. These tours offer more than standard city breaks and a meander around the usual monuments; rather they aim to provide new insights into old places combining experiences of the familiar with the not so familiar.
For 2015 Historica is offering five study tours with historical and artistic themes.All tours are accompanied by an expert guide/lecturer and offer en suite accommodation in hotels located right in the historic centre of cities. Costs include return flights and transfer between hotel and airport. On request a journey by European railways between UK and the destination can be arranged.
It is advisable to book early because the prices offered depend on being able to book air and rail tickets before they start to rise.
To be realistic viable tour groups need to be assembled by Christmas. Bookings will be taken later but only if a sufficient group has identified itself earlier, and then not necessarily at these prices.
