Discovery Tours

What Members Of Our Group Say

With over half of our participants returning year after year we are clearly doing things right, but don’t just take our word for it, here is what they have to say:

 ‘ I've been to the UK a number of times but that was the longest streak

of searing heat that I could even have imagined - thank you David & Trish

 for the foresight to get this unprepared Yank and all of the other participants

 a water bottle! Thanks again to Discovery Tours and Operation Europe

 for seeing to the details and to the participants for making it all enjoyable!  

I haven't been disappointed yet on a Discovery Tour’. Burt T, Illinois

Your hard work and dedication to providing such a great experience is very much appreciated.  It is obvious there is much that goes on behind the scenes before, during, and after such a well run event.’

Keith Z, PA

‘Thank you all for a wonderful time, despite tough detecting conditions.

While there are now several groups that hunt the UK, there is only one

that I know of that does it above the boards with respect to both the

 history and detecting hobby.  I cannot image any other group being able

to do what Discovery Tours does simply because they do not have the

 dedicated, knowledgeable staff it takes to do it right. David, Trish, Mark

and Gavin are the real treasures that made the trip a success.’

Doc W, VA

‘Thank you so much for all that YOU do for us!!!!!!

We all had a great time and, you are correct, we DID gel nicely. I think this was a super group! Thank you again for doing all of your hard work.’   

Karen H, ID

‘Thanks to all, I had quite the adventure. I didn't mind being the new guy with this group because I was treated like I belonged. Everyone was helpful and I did learn something from everyone. Thanks to all!’

Dan J, NJ

‘I sure enjoyed the time we had together on the tour.  Thank you both so

 much for another great one!!  You were great cheerleaders in the hot

weather. The beer we had in the field a couple time was a real nice touch! 

With the quality of field’s you put us on and the skill of the group, it shouldn’t

be surprising that some great finds came to light.’  

Ed S, KS

‘Thank you for everything. You and Trish are amazing!!!’

 Larry P, CA

‘You all did such a great job with your warmth, knowledge and enthusiasm it helped make the tour the most fun I have had while metal detecting.’

John K, NY 

‘I had a fantastic time this year. Thanks for all your hard work taking care of these Americans for two weeks.  I really enjoyed the detecting and it was really exciting finding hammered silver and Roman coins as well as artefacts, not to mention walking in the footsteps of generations past.  Ever since my first tour in 1992, Discovery Tours has really changed my life in the way I look at things as well as the wonderful history I have learned. Thanks for all the wonderful memories over the years.’

John, Delaware

   I had a wonderful time with David, Trish and Frank and the rest of the group...this      was my third trip..hope I can make it one more time with you all.’

     Jerry, California

‘It was a phenomenal trip, day after day, and one

 I will certainly remember.  Now  that I'm home,

 I'm already missing the fields, the group, and camaraderie. ‘


Mike M, California

‘There are three reasons why I use Discovery Tours. First is the organization, from the time they either pick me up at the airport or the hotel, everything is handled professionally. Second is the ground staff, David &Trish do a masterful job of researching the sites and identifying the finds. Lastly, it is my fellow hunters, they made me welcome on my first trip and are always ready and willing to lend experience or even a detector if you are in need.'
George S, North Carolina

‘Thank you so much for the wonderful time in your country! All the people I met are amazing and I can't wait to begin emailing them. Thank you both again, what a trip that was, I will never forget it.'              

 Barbara A, California

‘The Discovery Tours metal detecting trip to England is not only the most respected and responsible group of its kind, but it is extremely well organised, fun and rewarding. I cherish the comradeship of the friends I have met over the years and of course some of my awesome finds. I liken my annual trip with Discovery Tours as an adventure and I feel I am going to summer camp!’

Marilee D, Canada
