We just completed a tour of Oosterbeek and Arnhem having read a book titled "A street in Arnhem" about the battle of Arnhem and specifically the bravery and resolve of the British troops, German troops and Dutch civilians who all got caught up in this monumental failure of a military operation. Wybo, our guide, did an amazing job of bringing... More

Our tour was fantastic, both of us had a understanding of what happened at Arnhem during the war but our guide was able to build on that knowledge and really bring the battle to life for us. It was incredibly enjoyable but a very sobering experience. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Arnhem!

My friends and I spent a fascinating weekend touring battlefields from 3 wars (and a hit of a 4th) with Jon. He shared his wealth of detailed knowledge of these disparate topics with us in a way that helped us see the big picture, while picking out some details that made us see the great in the small. He was... More

This was a private tour arranged for myself and a friend. The b&b that was arranged for us was very good and ideally placed within the battlefield area. Our tour guide, John, provided a very useful initial overview and then took us to the main sites over the next day and a half. He was extremely knowledgeable and ensured our... More

The tour met all of my expectations. My guide, Wybo, was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the 1944/1945 battles that the Canadian Army had been involved in and was also flexible enough to accommodate my individual needs. I have been left with a very good understanding of what the Canadians had to do to remove the Gemans from the... More

The guide was very knowledgeable and took me to everywhere I needed to go to get a full understanding of the Raid,. Plus a couple of bonuses, a visit to St Valery en Cuax along the coast where the...

I have travelled to the Somme twice before with friends on motorcycles and never had a guide. What a mistake to make!!!

We have just been on a Somme tour with Jon Haslock - It was a really good trip and very worthwhile for both my son and I. Jon is very knowledgeable, friendly and lives in the area so he knows what to show. He also tailored the tour to suit us which made it even better. I would highly recommend... More
