From Lebanon to The US Post Trump!


Our latest tours

Travelling Again – From Lebanon to the US Post Trump!

We have a series of group tours scheduled for the spring and summer of 2021 – including Lebanon, several tours in the UK, and the United States.

In the United States we will look at President Biden’s victory and the political divides that continue to exist in the country after the Trump Presidency. The tour will take in Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia, North Carolina and Washington DC. The tour dates will depend upon when safe travel is possible but we are aiming for June or July of 2021. Please contact us to find out more or reserve a place.

Elsewhere we have tours set up in Lebanon – scheduled for late March, Ukraine in June and The Baltics.  If you would like to travel individually, as a family or in a private group we can also schedule tailor-made trips when and where you want to travel.  We have over twenty destinations to choose from including short-haul destinations like Hungary and Italy. We have great experts on standby including the BBC’s Nick Thorpe in Budapest, Nicholas Blanford and Leena Saidi in Beirut, and author Tobias Jones in Italy. Our overall aim is to be flexible and travel where and when possible.

Later in the year we have scheduled tours to South Africa, and Israel and Palestine. While travel is restricted we are also running webinars with our sister company, Beyond The Headlines. We are scheduling a series of briefings from our experts around the globe. You get to ask your own questions and speak to the experts online.  Discussions include topics as varied as Saudia Arabia, Brexit, Somalia, Plastic recycling, Iran, and US foreign policy amongst others.  We have a back-catalogue of more then 50 briefings.  Email us if you’d like to join us.
