Scheduled World War 2 Tours
Each WW2 tour is distinctive and will resonate at different levels – and wherever possible we combine our battlefield tours with visits to important cultural sites en route.
What all these tours have in common is that the events they describe took place within a generation and many of those participating will have relatives who fought or died in the locations we visit – which makes these battlefield tours all the more realistic and poignant. We encourage those with family connections to bring the stories with them and share them with other participants – thus ensuring a ‘living history’ experience.
All of our forthcoming Scheduled World War 2 Tours are listed below.
