Ready to Book? Any Questions?
WHAT IF I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS?
Simply give us a call, email or use the Enquiry Form on the Contact page. We're here to help and are often available to respond evenings and weekends.
WHAT AGES ARE THE TOURS SUITABLE FOR?
Our tours genuinely suit most people. Our tours usually comprise couples, friends and individuals aged from 40 to 70. We have a requirement for reasonable fitness, and each itinerary includes a guide to distances and the terrain involved. We'll happily discuss this with you.
Any bookings involving under 18s should be made by phone so that we can confirm tour suitability, check the availability and pricing of family rooms and discuss safeguarding arrangements.
HOW DO YOUR TOURS COMPARE TO OTHERS?
As a small tour specialist we take huge pride in the quality and individuality of our tours, from the genuine expertise and accessible friendliness of our founder-director-guides, to our commitment to your happiness and comfort. We've personally tested the well-located hotels and know all the sites and vistas in our itineraries, sharing our discoveries and the very latest interpretations that you won't find in any of the history books.
Our all-inclusive high quality standards are greatly appreciated by our guests, from food to drink, to our carefully crafted itineraries, whilst our tours are a day or two longer than most. We provide a greater depth of experience, sharing unique places and tales that we've personally uncovered, whilst giving you the time to absorb and enjoy the places we visit.
Choosing Campaigns & Culture is the best decision you can make when selecting a Battlefield or Campaign Tour.
DO YOU DRESS UP?
No. Battlefield Tours are sometimes confused with Re-enactment. That is an entirely different field requiring huge commitments of time, money, professionalism, armament and uniforms. We often meet re-enactors and admire what they do, but with us you're on holiday.
DO YOU MAKE UP THE TALES OF SOLDIERS, LIKE SHARPE?
There is some great historical fiction around, but it is all influenced by the amazing original memoirs, letters and accounts of those who were really there. All the eras we cover enjoyed rising literacy standards from humble private upwards, so there is a great wealth of real history, tales of daring-do and genuine first-hand accounts to draw on, much of it discovered by our guides. This is what we convey, and you'll find that truth is often stranger than fiction!
We do refer to historical fiction, often when we're debunking widely accepted "facts". Many of our tour guests grew their interest in real history through a fascination with historical fiction so it is all to be encouraged.
HOW DO I BOOK?
You can book online or phone us. We're generally available outside normal office hours, and will also respond evenings and weekends.
HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT?
Just £300 per person. This can be paid in any major currency to suit you, by debit, credit or charge card, or by Paypal. You'll receive an immediate booking acknowledgement and payment receipt by email.
