Learning Adventure made Fun!

Canadian World War History: Vimy to Juno Beach
Exceptional experience
By first-time traveler Don on 9/20/19
This tour was amazing. We were happy to have a Canadian focus for this tour. We found the experience eye-opening and heart-rendering. You realize how devastating war is to the soldiers, their families, and the people who live in the war-torn countries. The cruises were spectacular.
Canadian World War History: Vimy to Juno Beach
Every site I visited left some kind of impression
By first-time traveler Justine M. on 11/29/17
What made this trip different was going with a lot of other people from different walks of life, different experiences. Visiting these sites is a way to remember and respect those men and women who died serving their country, and the civilians caught in the line of fire.
Canadian World War History: Vimy to Juno Beach
This was a great trip!
By 4th-time traveler Donna on 10/4/18
Our tour guide Chris was extremely knowledgeable and couldn't have been more helpful. She pointed out places that we would not have seen otherwise and even as we were traveling from site to site gave us a history of the area and answered every question that the group asked.
Historic Germany: Berlin to Bavaria

4 reasons
to take a historic battlefield tour with us

1. You’re always with an expert

If you’re going on a world war history tour, you want an educational, historically accurate, and detailed experience. One of the benefits of taking a group or guided tour is that you’ll have an expert with you every step of the way. They’ll guide you through the world’s historic sites, so you can get an in-depth look at each battle.

2. Learn about history where it happened

You may have studied the history of the world’s wars, but nothing quite compares to learning about it as you stand on the spot where it all unfolded. You can look up at the home where Anne Frank once resided on tour in Amsterdam or learn all about Vimy Ridge on its 105th Anniversary on tour. Historical battlefield tours bring you closer to the history, and its human impact.

3. Feel closer to your ancestors

Many of our travelers have ancestors that were impacted by war. Our trips allow you to connect with your ancestors in a whole new way. Learn more about their trials and tribulations and gain a better understanding of how those events have helped to shape our lives today.

4. See the powerful impact these battles had

Our military history tours will take you to unique memorial sites where the lasting impact of these historic battles can sometimes still be seen.
