Whether your interest is personal or historical, this tour is extremely informative.
Our tours are very flexible and will normally incorporate as many sites of interest as possible that clients wish to see, obviously main battle areas are a must but sometimes our groups may have had family that fought in lesser-known battles, these again can usually be visited.
