[The lecturer] was outstandingly good and well-nigh worth the whole cost of the tour on his own. As one would expect, his lectures were a model of how to communicate with an intelligent  but lay audience. Anthony

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.

Frequently asked questions

  • Q.Can I add additional private travel arrangements to one of your group tours?

    A.Yes! If you have more time and would like to explore further, you are absolutely welcome to add pre or post tour travel arrangements to one of our group tours. We can advise on the logistics of joining or leaving the tour if not taking our recommended group flights, and our tailor-made department will be pleased to assist with any flights, accommodation or touring that you require so that it all coordinates perfectly.

  • Q.Do you accept Credit cards?

    A.We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express for a single payment of up to £1000 per booking. We are charged up to 2% by card providers for these transactions and aren't legally allowed to pass on this cost, so we have decided to cap credit card usage rather than raise our prices across the board.

  • 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.
