Tours

Since 2015 I have been running small group tours to socialist-era heritage sites in Eastern Europe. Starting out with one six-day itinerary in Bulgaria, my tour programme has since grown to cover a total of seven countries and one post-Soviet frozen conflict zone. More recently I have started leading tours for Atlas Obscura too, bringing my lovingly-crafted itineraries to a larger audience than ever before.

There’s only one of me though… groups are small and interest is high, so places tend to fill up fast. Send me a message if you want to get added to the mailing list for advance notice of new routes.

Bohemian Tours

I don’t like package tours… and that’s why the trips listed on this page probably won’t feel like any conventional tour you’ve been on before. Think of this more as a road trip with friends you haven’t met yet – and with an itinerary that’s fluid enough to allow for spontaneous distractions and photo stops. It’s a road trip packed full of history and architecture, with elements of urban exploration and dark tourism thrown in.

I believe the result is something quite special… and ever since I ran my first tour back in May 2015, (almost) every subsequent event I’ve organised has sold out fast.

If you have any questions about the tours listed on this page, or to book your place, just send me a message.
