2014 Battlefield Tours


All my tours in 2014 are with Holts Battlefields and History, one of the longest established and most reputable companies providing both group and bespoke travel to the battlefields of the world. I have been designing and guiding tours for Holts since 1997 and am leading the bulk of the First World War tours in this centenary year. In addition to tours advertised in the Holts brochure, I will also be guiding a centenary 1914 tour for the Queen’s Royal Surrey Regiment and, for the tenth year running, a Normandy D-Day tour for the American School in London.

My First Ypres and Christmas Truce tour was featured twice in the Daily Telegraph in The best escorted tours and The best remembrance and battlefield tours.
