Founded by the late Stephen E. Ambrose, our company was developed from his research and work. He combined his input, passion and knowledge to create historical and World War II tour itineraries that celebrate the American spirit.

Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours continues to preserve his legacy and expand the carefully conceived and executed heritage itineraries inspired by his life’s work.

Our historians are experts in their field of history and world-renowned authors. Their years of extensive research and interviewing hundreds of WWII veterans on the very battlefields on which they fought add a personal dimension to our tours. It is a highlight to hear them tell these stories of America’s heroes at the very places where they occurred. These harrowing tales of bravery and courage capture a moment in time.

We invite you to travel with us through the battlefields of Europe and the Pacific and the Civil War, and follow the trails of explorers in the American West. Here our historians will share these remarkable narratives that have changed the course of history. It is their passion and enthusiasm that leaves our fellow travelers with memories of a lifetime.
