Culture & History Holidays

If immersing yourself in ancient history is something you look for in a holiday, then Latin America will tick all the boxes with its Mayan, Aztec and Inca civilisations. The New World also offers the opportunity to see traditional cultures in modern times and our culturally sensitive tours ensure that tourism contributes to local economies in a positive way. For the modern Latin vibe look no further than Rio, Buenos Aries and Lima. Africa has much to offer here too, not least the celebrated cultural wealth of Ethiopia, the ancient trading towns of East Africa and the more recent history of South Africa’s struggle for freedom from colonial rule, and later from apartheid.
