My first year back after a few years away from touring, 2023 is full of Peninsula and Waterloo journeys, in which I’ve emphasised looking after repeat clients and a few new ones before full service resumes in 2024. If you’d like to join our select band this year please reach out and I’ll be happy to share full details.

Already this year we’ve covered 24 Peninsular battlefields, from rarely visited remote actions in beautiful places to exceptionally detailed studies of major battlefields, and the Waterloo Campaign in extreme depth, boosted by my latest research battlefield walks in the company of historian Pierre de Wit and French perspective author Andrew Field, where I had the pleasure of presenting Ligny & Quatre Bras in, dare I say it, more detail than anyone has enjoyed before.

We’re all about top quality small group tours – boutique trips for 1 to 3 guests, rising to a maximum of 10 guests – staying in fantastic hotels (Forts, Monasteries, Palaces …) and driving in comfort – (our boutique trips are usually in Porsche 4WD, reaching the parts that other tours can’t reach) – visiting cultural Unesco World Heritage sites along the way – with superb restaurants and wine.

Later this year, interspersed with more touring, the full website will be up with my 2024 programme. Our images from countless visits to the battlefields and campaign routes are legendary and all will return. Our touring standards are the highest. What makes our small group tours truly unique is the intimate knowledge of these places, the history, the geography, locally imparted knowledge – and above all, sheer quality.

You can reach me on info@campaignsandculture.com, or call me on 01805 43 1066 (from overseas +44 1805 43 1066).

I’ll be very happy to discuss what you’d like to see and do, and build plans with you for 2023, 2024 and beyond.

My very best wishes to tour guests old and new.
