Insights & Detailed Ratings
"In Robert I have rarely met someone with so much passion for their subject; never stop!"
DG, South Africa
"Our second trip. What makes Campaigns & Culture so appealing is the expertise, enthusiasm and ability to convey that expertise in an interesting way. You also kept us very well fed!"
"My wife will happily do more holidays with a military theme as long as it is with you."
JH, United Kingdom
A LITTLE MORE DETAIL
"An outstanding, detailed study of the events leading up to and the ultimate Battle of Waterloo. Delightful, extremely knowledgeable guides. I had read much on the Battle of Waterloo, I was one of the re-enactors on the field for the 2015 bicentenary. But I did not really feel that I could look at the terrain and know Waterloo. This amazing trip settled that! I enjoyed every minute of unique access to incredible history and the delightful company."
"Our tour was superbly organised and led. The depth of knowledge and spirit of adventure led us to a deep understanding of the campaign, bringing to life the battlefields in really fascinating detail! Recommend to anyone who wishes to combine historical accuracy, fun, local knowledge and good meals!"
RH, United Kingdom
"We recognised an expert from the moment we met Robert. It was great to view the battlefields from so many 'off the beaten track' viewpoints at the best time of the year. The private visits made us feel very special, and we loved the all-inclusive arrangements and choice of meals each day. Your company was most enjoyable, your knowledge terrific and outstanding. Don't do anything differently."
JS, United Kingdom
"Campaigns & Culture delivered a superb combination of a military tour on an obscure topic with time to explore other historical sites at a leisurely pace. Limiting the people on the tour to a small group allowed for personal attention and great group dynamics! It was everything I've come to expect from the company."
BB, United States
"Robert is a terrific tour guide and host, leaving no question unanswered. The passion and knowledge for the subject is remarkable. It was a sheer pleasure being on this tour. The information supplied was premier in quality. Robert also proved to be the consummate wine connoisseur."
BV, United States
"For me the walking on the battlefield was the main aim to get a full appreciation of what happened and how things developed. The Grouchy game is an excellent way of highlighting the difficulties of command and making you reassess command and control across the whole period ... unexpected but very powerful ... you set the bar very high"

THE LAST WORD
"You exceeded our expectations, again!
Difficult, as we had such high expectations from past experience, but you did the unexpected and managed it!
By the way, I will now admit that I am now so very glad that we 'did' Barba del Puerco, despite my earlier misgivings about the climb back up.
There, I've admitted it!"
AH, United Kingdom
