Hidden History Travel offers an expanding collection of superb tours and holidays in the UK, Europe and the Mediterranean. They are perfect combinations of leisure and interest with beautiful locations, great hotels and fascinating insights from history, prehistory and the ancient world.

An Enriching Experience

Archaeology, history and landscape underlie the character and identity of every destination, often with profound wider interest. We explore these themes in a relaxed, informal way through guided visits, interesting talks and gentle walks.

A Great Holiday

Our unhurried itineraries also give time to explore places in your own way or to simply relax and absorb it all. We choose excellent, often luxurious hotels in attractive, convenient locations. Our group sizes of 15-25 people are sociable without feeling herded, and allow us to get off the beaten track to those hidden gems that make all the difference.

Everyone is Welcome

The tours aim to suit most people’s level of interest, energy and mobility. You will be expertly guided by friendly, enthusiastic people who do not expect you to have any prior knowledge of archaeology or history. So everyone is welcome, whether travelling singly or with a partner.

Friendly and Informed

As a small, specialist tour operator, we are able to focus on the content and quality of your travel experience and provide a personal touch. The owner, Dr Simon Butler, is a dedicated professional who has worked in archaeology and heritage tourism all his life.

Financial Security

Hidden History Travel is backed-up by the buying power and respected authority of The Travel Network Group to bring you high standards and great value for money. Our membership of the Travel Trust Association also gives you, our customers, the best financial protection in the travel industry and full ATOL protection for flights. TTA membership number: Q2398.
