The Battlefields Tours

Like a university paper there is a fact in every short sentence and the places we visit are not only covered in detail factually and from inherent military probability but also from the enemy experience and point of view because, over the years, we have taken the trouble to meet and learn from Germans who were actually there in 1944. And of course we have walked Normandy, The Seine and Arnhem / Nijmegen many times.

Our tours are designed for people who want to know what happened and why it happened and a great deal of time is spent in discussion on site. Of course we will do our best to find a war grave if one of our guests wants us to.

We walk the battlefields, transported by a good luxury coach or motorcar and have a break at lunchtime and in the evening we have a good dinner with lots of laughs thrown in. The day is enjoyable, sad at times of course, but by the end of the tour people go back with a good knowledge and understanding of what happened - and many come back for another tour later. And that is what we really like. Comfort is important and so is good food and wine so we stay at mostly 3* and 4* hotels that we know personally. On small tours we stay in well-run country inns.

We have no fixed dates or maximum/minimum number of people. We are happy to take one, two or up to twenty people or any number inbetween and of course the price is reflected in the number. We will meet you in Paris or Caen and we will recommend hotels for you to book.

We will design the whole package from air fare to return destination.

We take immense trouble to make people comfortable and we are flexible enough to design any tour to any battlefield for any length of time in any season - why waste winter?

tours of the Normandy battlefields After D Day

The image above shows allied ingenuity after D Day. Old ships and concrete caissons were deliberately sunk to form a mile long artificial harbour off Gold beach, the landing site for British Troops. Supply ships could dock at the mid-harbour pier, linked to the shore by pontoon roadways. Battered caissons (see image below) are now all that remains of the port which delivered 300,000 tons of supplies before the July capture of Cherbourg gave the allies a real harbour.
