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
David Hogben Jan 2011

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.

Visiting the cemetary gave the gravitas to the whole tour to show all was ‘real’ and not just heroic stories.

Nick 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 Nick added plenty of extra colour to the tour with unpublished stories from veterans he had met whilst in Holland.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!!
Mark Cardy April 2010

Excellent! Interesting tour, never knew all this.
Bas van Oers April 2010

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!
Robert Derry April 2010

Daniel Roukema April 2010

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.

I 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.
Major K J A Byrne Joint Service Signal Unit Dec 2009

On 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.
Paul Anderson Dec 2009

Many 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.
Raul Grable Oct 2009
