Introducing our exciting new tours for 2019

There may still be five months left of this year, but the program we have created for 2019 is so exciting that we simply can't wait to share it with you... Lose yourself in the Shrines & Serendipity of Sri Lanka, follow in the footsteps of the Phoenicians and the Berbers in Tunisia and Morocco, or travel Along the Baltic Shores in Lithuania, Latvia & Estonia. The range of experiences, variety of archaeological sites and historical periods we are offering for the new year are astounding, and we are counting the days until our new program appears at your door. Our team has worked tirelessly to design itineraries that will captivate your mind, enchant your senses and leave you with lasting memories, and we asked around in the office to discover which tours are staff favorites...

Rosalind Wallduck, Product Manager:
Western China | Relics of the Silk Road

"It is hard for me, working in Product, to choose a favorite tour; but Western China is an exciting new addition to our program! This itinerary captures Archaeological Tours' ethos of discovering locations off the beaten track, where ancient ruins of various cultures and breathtaking landscapes await. A perfect opportunity to tick the Terracotta Warriors and the Great Wall of China off the bucket list, alongside the lesser explored, but equally fascinating and archaeologically significant, relics of the Silk Road."

Suman Shetty, Operations Manager:
Myanmar & Cambodia | Burmese Empires and Khmer Kingdoms

"I have been wanting to explore the temples and history of South East Asia, travelling from Myanmar to Cambodia. To tour the mysterious country of Burma with the previous capital Yangon, the hub for Buddhism Mandalay, the haunted land Bagan, where you could take an optional hot-air balloon ride over Bagan’s temple studded plains before cycling between the pagodas and small villages you’ve already admired from above. To wander amongst the overgrown statues of Angkor Thom where 54 towers with enigmatic faces look on as you walk among them. Watch the sun highlight the beautiful carved Apsara dancers as it sets over Angkor Wat."

Scotland | Megaliths and Mythologies

"Scotland’s friendly people, sprawling acres of lush green hills and the magical landscape of the Isle of Skye is unlike any place I have ever been. Edinburgh is a city unlike any other with the best castle I have ever had the pleasure of visiting and Glasgow, Europe’s friendliest city, has beautiful architecture and a unique vibrant culture. Explore the mythical history of the Scots, breathtaking views, and indulge in a wee dram of whisky."

Staci Owen, Sales Executive:
Sri Lanka | Shrines & Serendipity

"Years ago I spent time in India and fell in love with the rich culture and food. Unfortunately I was unable to make it to its neighboring country of Sri Lanka. I would love to go and see the mountain landscape carpeted in tea fields, take in the beautiful beaches, watch the elephants bathe, and of course make the climb up to the Citadel of Sigiriya. Sri Lanka is truly a dream trip of mine."

Melanie Samad, Customer Care:
North India | Maharajahs & Mughals

"I recently spent 3 months volunteering and traveling in North India, and I cannot begin to express the profound affect the trip has had on me. I enjoyed visiting the palaces and temples of Rajasthan, Agra and Delhi, but my favorite experiences were the subtle moments on the streets or trains, interacting with locals and observing a world so utterly different from my own, while feeling surprisingly at home. India has etched itself into my heart and soul, and it is a place that I intend to return to many times in the years to come."

Steven Williams, Customer Care:
Central Mexico | Mesoamerican Mysteries

"What can I say about Central Mexico that isn’t apparent from the enchanting photographs, interviews with people, and cuisine that speaks for itself? As an undergraduate, my focus was on the rich, complex history of the Americas—with a focus on Latin America and the Caribbean. Traveling to see the temples of Teotihuacan was the highlight of my trip. Standing in Mexico City thinking about a region that has shaped the world due to Cortes’ actions at the behest of Spain. A traveler can’t help but feel a pensive reverence as they make their way from the heart of a vibrant metropolis to the ruins of the Temple of the Moon. It is definitely something you can’t miss!"
