Hi Nick, Thanks for a fantastic insight into the operations
in Holland in 1944 and 1945. Your level of knowledge was quite
fantastic as such we had a fantastic tour.

All I can say that it was a very interesting tour. The right
level of historical background, looking out of the exact hills
where the battle took place, Nick’s knowledge on the topic.
Him being an English native speakers was very helpful as I’d
rather not listen to someone not very good in English, as that
takes away the ‘jus’ of the story.
the cemetary gave the gravitas to the whole tour to show all
was ‘real’ and not just heroic stories.

provided an excellent, informative and extremely moving tour.
He delivered it in a way that portrayed the emotion of the time
and you gained a real sense of what it might have been like
to have been there .... the long, difficult trek to Arnhem,
the elation at seeing the bridges and the despair at not fulfilling
the objective. Then finally the sadness of the war cemetery
and all the young lives that were lost!! Nick added plenty of
extra colour to the tour with unpublished stories from veterans
he had met whilst in Holland. All in all a great trip only wish
we could have spent all day there!!
Excellent! Interesting tour, never knew all this.

The tour was fantastic! To be able to visualise a battle that
I have known about for years but never truly understood was
a unique experience and one that will stay with me for a long
time. WWII has always been a fascination of mine but to see
where it all happened and to hear of first hand experiences
from a survivor like Sam was very humbling. Thanks to Nick for
a great all round effort and for making our team building event
one that no one will forget!

impressive tour, thank you for taking us around.

The Battle of Arnhem trip was brilliant. The tour guide was
great; very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject.
I had never heard of the battle of Arnhem before (history was
not my strong point) but I loved the tour, although it was very
sad in parts.
would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team
for the outstanding Battlefeld Tour you so professionally organized
for the personnel from this Unit. We all agreed that the standard
of presentation and indeed the information that was provided
to us throughout the tour was excellent. You and your team really
portrayed the battle in a very sympathetic yet factually correct
manner which permitted us to really get a feel for what the
soldiers on both sides had to endure during that fateful 8 days
in the Arnhem area.

behalf of all of us especially my mother, I would like to say
thank you so much for the tour you organised for us. As my brother
said my mother waited 60 years for this! To actually be in the
exact places where those brave men fought for our freedom was
a truly moving experience. Even more so that you were able to
show us the place where my uncles plane crashed and where he
was helped by the locals. That personalised aspect made the
whole experience even more relevant.

thanks again for so alertly picking up my last-minute request
and taking us on such a brilliant tour of Operation Market Garden.
It is particularly useful that you focus so much on asking the
right questions rather than having a set of pre-packaged answers.
