You are eager to visit the battlefields of Europe. But rather than join one of our group coach tours, you would prefer a private tour - perfectly customized to include your own list of destinations and length of stay. You've come to the right place. Liberation Tours traces its beginnings to creating customized, private, guided tours for Canadians across the country. ______________________________
Perhaps you have a father or grandfather, aunt or uncle, who served in WWI or WWII, and you would like to retrace where they served. We would be honoured to work with you to create a truly custom-designed trip which is tailor-made just for you, so you can follow in the footsteps of your family's military history - led by your own professional Canadian tour guide.
Where to begin? No doubt you have lots of questions, ideas, thoughts. Let's start with a to-do list:
list the places you'd like to visit
places where you know your ancestor fought ... and if you're not sure, let us know and we can assist with the research
perhaps you'd like to include well-known locations like Juno Beach or Vimy Ridge
places you know you need to see, like the final resting place of a family member or relative
cultural locations like Mont St. Michel, the Amiens Cathedral, the canals of Amsterdam or Big Ben in London
give some thought to how long you would like to be on the road ... 7-9 days, 10-12 days, 14-18 days, 21+ days
how many in your party? just the two of you, or perhaps a group of 4 or 5
start and finish points, for example, start in Paris and finish in Amsterdam / London / Berlin, or begin in Rome and end in Florence
mobility or dietary issues
airfare, to be included or perhaps you have points and would like to book that yourself
There are many more things to cover and we can handle all of your questions ... flexibility of schedule, how many or how few museums you'd like to include, how much free time you'd like to program into your trip ... it's all completely flexible.
