Our tours satisfy enthusiasts, from the most expert military historian through to novice, family and friends looking for a great and original holiday.

Intriguing military history is at the very heart of what we do, presented with depth, accuracy, insight and entertainment. We challenge accepted history with fresh interpretation and the very latest expert knowledge, seen through the eyes of those who were there. Along the way we enjoy comfort, great food and hospitality!

If you like memorable experiences, visiting fascinating places with a small group of like-minded people then we're just what you've been looking for.

For 2018 our focus is on Napoleonic times, from the Peninsular War to Waterloo. 200 years ago the world was recovering from 26 years of revolution and conflict across the globe, an era which boasted great leaders in Napoleon, Nelson & Wellington, and which remains instrumental in creating much of the world we know today.
