We received the following note from Mr. H. Roger Barksdale, who has traveled with us on the D-Day Tour, about the wonderful time he and his wife had on their “dream trip.” Our D-Day to the Rhine tour is the first tour that our founder Stephen Ambrose led in the late 1970s when he was a professor at the University of New Orleans. We are pleased to hear from Roger that we are doing a good job at carrying on his legacy.
“The D-Day tour is the ultimate trip for anyone interested in WWII history in Europe. We visited so many significant historical sights and saw so many things that most people would never find if they were touring on their own or with another company that doesn’t specialize in WWII history.
I know a lot of people who have toured France and spent one afternoon in Normandy. We spent 3 days there, not only on the beaches but at many other out-of-the-way places where significant events occurred.
Our tour guide was the most knowledgable person I have ever met on WWII history. His narratives really did make history come to life.
Our accommodations were excellent throughout the trip and Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours made the planning easy.
This D-Day tour is a dream trip for any WWII history buff who wants to stand on the beaches at Normandy, experience the powerful emotions brought forth by the military cemeteries in France and Luxembourg, stand in a foxhole in the Ardennes, and tour General McAuliffe’s office in Bastogne.”
