For over thirty years, Temple World has created expert-led tours for prestigious institutions such as the Royal Geographical Society, The Smithsonian, MacArthur Foundation, University of Bristol and Durham University.

Now we are proud to be the largest and longest-serving operator of alumni tours to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Each carefully designed tour is exclusive to the alumni or members of the institution it was created for, with family and friends also welcome.

When designing alumni tours our ethos is to provide a journey which are exciting, entertaining and above all educational. Founded by Archaeologist Dr David Price Williams, Temple World has always placed learning at the heart of every trip.

Each journey we create is accompanied by an academic who is able to introduce travellers to a deeper understanding of the places they are visiting. We find this attracts a discerning, like-minded clientele who enjoy eachother’s company as much as the sites and lectures.

Our current alumni tours
We are in the process of adding our 2018 tours, one at a time. This should be completed in the first week of July, with new tours being added daily. If you have seen a tour advertised which is not featured, please contact us for more information.

Frequently asked questions

  • Q.I am travelling alone. Do you accept singles on your tours?

    A.Of course. We are able to accept single travellers on all our tours although in some places where we can only obtain a limited number of rooms we cap the number of single places on offer.

  • Q.My wife is an alum but I am not, can I still join an alumni tour?

    A.Yes, you are most welcome. Our alumni tours are open to the spouses, partners, family and friends of alumni.

  • Q.How do I make a booking?

    A.We advise calling us to check availability and discuss the details of the tour first. We can hold places provisionally with no obligation for a week. When you’re ready, we require a signed booking form and a deposit of £300-£500 pp.

  • Q.Why don’t your tours include flights?

    A.Increasing numbers of clients wish to use airmiles or travel on dates other than the main tour dates, so we don’t get the numbers required for group rates. We can always offer great prices on individual flights to coordinate with the tour if needed.

  • Q.Can Temple World arrange my travel from the USA?

    A.We are always able to offer advice on the best flights to coordinate with our tours but we don’t get special rates on fares originating outside the UK. We recommend speaking to a good local travel agent.
