In The Footsteps® Battlefield Tours

Who We Are & What We Do

Welcome to Our Website

In the footsteps aims to provide top quality battlefield tours that offer the personal touch that many of the larger package tour operators are unable to achieve. We have over fifteen years experience in designing tours for individuals, couples and small groups, and are confident that we can design a battlefield tour to meet your needs. At In the footsteps we are certain that we can achieve if not exceed all of your requirements.

You know you are in safe hands with In the footsteps; we were the first Battlefield Tour operator to be awarded membership of the European Tour Operators Association and the first to be given the coveted status of Supporter of the Guild of Battlefield Guides. All of our battlefield tours are guided by Subject Matter Experts who have a wealth of experience delivering a package that is fantastic value and an experience that you will cherish forever.

What does your battlefield tour include?

All of our tailor-made battlefield tours include the services of a dedicated tour guide and transport around the battlefield area. We can also take care of all other arrangements (excluding flights). We can: -

  • Book your ferry crossings or Eurostar from the UK.

  • Book your accommodation in one of our carefully selected hotels or B & Bs.

  • Make your tour all-inclusive, full-board, half-board or bed and breakfast only, whichever you wish.

  • Arrange your pick-up and return from:

       Our UK port of departure or port of entry.

       A train station in the tour location.

       An airport in the UK or tour location.

       Your hotel.

       Or any other agreed location.

Whatever you want us to include we will, that which you want to do yourself you can. Our tailor-made In the footsteps packages are truly flexible giving you total control of your tour.

Each tour that we provide can be especially designed to cater for your very own requirements and we give you the opportunity to see the specific places that are important to you. So whatever you want to do, we can build an itinerary that ensures you get to see what you want to see not just what the tour operator wants to show you.

An In the footsteps tour gives you the flexibility to go where you want, when you want and stay in the grade of accommodation you prefer. So whether you want a battlefield tour of D-Day and the Beaches of Normandy or Arnhem and Operation MARKET GARDEN in WW2 or a battlefield tour to the Somme, Ypres, Ypres Salient, Passchendaele, Vimy Ridge, Mons, Verdun on the Western Front of the 1914-18 Great War or even visit one of the older battlefields we can design a tour that is right for you.

We have previously arranged battlefield tours for American, Australian, British, Canadian, New Zealand, Singaporean and South African visitors.
