Planning Stages

Year round, our team at AIA Tours works with a variety of local experts around the world to bring you archaeology-themed travel experiences to more than 35 countries and six continents. Each tour is accompanied by a knowledgeable and congenial AIA lecturer/host and professional tour manger/local guide(s). These trips are designed for anyone with an interest in archaeology, from the curious to the connoisseur.

We are adding new trips all the time! If you are interested in any of the trips below, and would like to be notified when more information becomes available, call us at 800-748-6262 or email aia@studytours.org and mention which tours you are interested in.
