With almost 40 years’ experience in operating Battlefield and History Tours and more than 25 years in running School Travel, Holts Tours prides itself on being the specialist in educational travel and history and battlefield tours.

Holts offers educational visits, trips and tours in Europe and around the UK for school student groups. Their range of tours cover art, culture, geography, science and language, as well as their main product, battlefields and history. 


School trips are an essential part of a child’s education
School trips help to foster a sense of adventure and allow children the freedom to explore the world in a safe and supervised environment. Many experts say that such experiences help to develop self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience.  Students also get a fresh perspective and understanding of the world, inspiring and illuminating the subjects that they are studying. 

Bringing history to life 

All of Holts' tour guides are hand-picked. They understand the history, the personalities and backgrounds of the momentous events covered by our tours. They also know about the ground and the men who were there. 

Holts high standards of traveller care, together with the shared interests and lively debate between travellers and guides, produce a remarkable camaraderie. No one need feel lonely or left out. On a Holts Tour all you need do is look, listen and learn and, of course, share the Holts experience. 


All of their holidays are 100% financially protected with ATOL and ABTA.
