History of America Tours – Colonial America
The sprawling cities and technological advancements of today are a far cry from the modest beginnings of the United States. Touring to understand U.S. history can offer a window into the past in places like Williamsburg, where students can visit the first permanent English settlement in the Americas and see how colonists lived in the Colonial era. Another excellent destination for students learning about Colonial America is Philadelphia, where U.S. history tours can take them through Amish Country, Benjamin Franklin’s print shop, and various other pre-revolutionary landmarks.
American History Travel Tours – The American Revolution
The fight for American independence from British rule is a defining point in U.S. history. Arrange tours in any of a number of history-filled cities from Boston and Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. and give students the opportunity to see the sites where these pivotal events unfolded.
