Travel & Archaeology

Our Ethos

Leisure with Enrichment

A Great Holiday and a Worthwhile Experience

Our name, Hidden History Travel, reflects the hidden nature of the past, and how travel can help us uncover its meanings, mysteries and insights.

The past is hidden in the ancient ruins, historic buildings, museum artefacts and cultural landscapes we encounter on our travels. It underlies the character and identity of everywhere and, like a foreign country, it is full of difference and interest. Yet it is also the wider story of humankind, our collective experience, with relevance and meaning for us all.

This is why archaeological travel is so fascinating and why, at Hidden History Travel, we are dedicated to providing an expanding collection of wonderful and worthwhile experiences which unite culture with adventure, leisure with interest.

We want you to share in this vision, so we hope you will join us for an enriching travel experience, a journey through time as well as place.

Leisure with Enrichment

All Hidden History’s tours include a host of fully guided excursions and interesting talks to create an enriching travel experience. They also include some luxury and leisure by choosing great hotels and keeping itineraries nicely relaxed and varied; unhurried with time to absorb it all and simply enjoy yourself. This is our hallmark—a satisfying balance of leisure of interest, realistically paced and reasonably priced.

Quality & Price

The emphasis is on the nature of the experience, reliable organisation, and good value for money. We are aware that tour operators tend to polarise into expensive, exclusive specialists on the one hand, and rather uninspiring, mass market operators on the other. We sit comfortably in the middle, offering something of both; dedicated and informed but affordable and accessible. High standards without high prices.

Discovery and Inclusion

We have a passion for archaeology and travel, and we want to share our sense of discovery with you. Our guides and speakers are knowledgeable and experienced professionals and the most friendly and open of people. Their skill is in bringing the subject to life so that everyone feels comfortable, included and enlightened, whatever your background.

Engagement with People & Place

Archaeology and history provide real depth of insight into a destination and connect not only with that place and its people but also with wider aspects of culture and humanity. This helps us appreciate the significance, specialness and authenticity of places and gets us off the beaten track to enrich not only ourselves but also the local economy.
