  • European Historical Tours

    Hey Folks,

    I just picked up a copy of the magazine last week, and its the magazine I dreamed of making. I always found history to be so much more interesting if you have a feeling of being involed in it and thats just what this magazine does. I am going to get a subscription. anyways, on to my question.

    Spring is near and it making me think of what to do this summer. I want to go to Europe and see european culture, yet at the same time I would love to see some historical battlefields.

    Anyone been on these tours? I am guessing its mostly older folks who take these tours but I wanta go even if I look like the odd man out. I would like to see normandy, and WWI battle sites.

    Any recomendations of Tour guides? or words of wisedom? its gonna cost me a shiny penny, but its something I wanted to do since I was a little guy.

    Glad you like the Magazine!
    I took a tour of Normandy with Ambrose Tours of New Orleans. It was a good experience! FYI you might want to avoid Normnady this is the 6oth anniversary of DDAY and it will be a zoo. If you do plan to go to Normandy anytime this summer PLAN FAR AHEAD. everything will be sold out.
    I always wanted to visit Bastonge and the Arnhem campaign region...maybe this summer.
    Best way to go is read everything you can before going and find a local tour guide if possible.
    For Normandy and Arnhem you must buy "Major Holt's Battlefield Guide." They are very detailed with great maps and available from Amazon.
