Time Travel Australia

While our tours are labelled as educational, we try to provide an environment that makes learning fun and enjoyable while increasing each participant's desire to increase their knowledge and understanding not only of the areas that they have visited but also other cultures throughout the world.

With a maximum group size of sixteen or less we can provide a more personalised service. Each group is lead by a professional archaeologist or historian and accompanied by an assistant to ensure that all arrangements are in order as we proceed. We engage local guides where possible, however we hold briefings and de-briefings in order to provide a balanced view and continuity between sites as we travel through an area.

Accommodation is in standard hotels and guesthouses with private facilities where possible. Where possible we select establishments that impart a little local flavour either through their architecture or location. Land transport ranges from private bus to public systems including boats, buses and trains. Some tour options and/or field-work projects in more remote locations require camping. Participants must be prepared to go without all 'mod cons' in such situations, however we try to make conditions as amenable as possible.

We aim to demonstrate how present cultures are but the sum of their past; the present being merely a part of the continuum that is human history.

We also hope to demonstrate the need for consistent management and protection of the world's cultural heritage resources, while providing tourists with access and accurate information relating to a broad range of sites and subjects. This must not only include the more significant and spectacular areas, but also the peripheral and lesser known sites, all of which contribute to our knowledge of the continuum that is human history.
