Professional Historians

We have the most qualified historians lead our custom group historical and military tours. They are leaders in their field and world-renowned authors. Their extensive research and interviews with thousands of WWII and D-Day veterans on the very battlefields where they fought give your group an unrivaled experienced.

Custom Itineraries

Our historians will work closely with our team in New Orleans to customize your itinerary to your specific interests whether it is covering the air warfare of WWII or visiting the sacred ground where your grandfather fought. You can choose one of our existing group tour itineraries, which we can tweak to allow more free time to visit a museum or attraction of interest, or to tack on additional days for a side trip.

From 3- to 5-stars, you can choose the level of hotel that suits your group as well as whether or not you would like to include meals. We are happy to work with you to incorporate any amenities or special requests you may have.
