Historical

Without an understanding of a destination’s history, everything can easily just turn to scenery. Seeing historic palaces, cities, forts and archeological sites help you to understand what has shaped the country you are now travelling through. We know that everyone’s interest in history is different, and we will tailor any itinerary to offer up just the right amount of a ‘history fix’ you would want. This might mean exploring ancient temples in Sri Lanka, historic forts and palaces in Rajasthan, the pagodas of Bagan or the fortified dzongs of Bhutan. With expert guides, you can start to learn about the destination’s past, and therefore how it developed into what it is today.  You might have an interest in the colonial history of Sri Lanka, India or Burma, or an interest in Mughal architecture.
