BATTLEFIELD TOURS


If you are interested in military history and want to learn more about Operation Market Garden, doing a battlefield tour is a great way to create a better understanding of the operation. WW2 Market Garden offers battlefield tours to individuals or small groups who want to learn more about the operation.

The webmasters of WW2 Market Garden Chris and Tom are happy to take you on a battlefield tour of a lifetime and teach you more about Operation Market Garden. The best way to remember the brave men and women who fought for our freedom is by telling their story on location.


During our tours we learn all about the:

We put a lot of time and effort in preparing the best battlefield tour for you. With a battle area of (roughly) 750 square miles, touring the area of Operation Market Garden can be very time consuming. There are many stories to tell, many points of interest and many miles to travel, so knowing what you want to see and what not is very important.


When do we tour?


We mainly tour during the weekends, Saterday and Sunday. Other days of the week is possible, but only by mutual agreement. We offer tours throughout the year, whenever we’re available. Contact us for availability.


Duration of a tour?


We offer a 1 or a 2-day tour, usually starting at 9 AM ending at 5 PM.


On a 1-day tour we are able to visit the southern sector (XXX-Corps and 101st Airborne Division) or the northern sector (82nd and 1st Airborne Division). On a 2-day tour we can visit the entire battle area.


If you are interested in a specific unit, it is also possible to dedicate a full day (or both days) to the area where the unit fought. This is ideal for history buffs like us or people who are into military history, strategy and tactics.

How many people can we bring on a Battlefield Tour?


The car we use provides 4 passenger seats, airconditioning and good visibility. Because we drive long distances during the tour, it is more comfortable to travel with 3 people. If you’re travelling group is bigger than 4 people, you need to arrange extra means of transportation.

What you need know:


We are members of Foundation Remember September 1944 and we’re totally nuts about World War 2 history. We are passionate about what we do, highly interested in Operation Market Garden and our goal is to connect with our clients, hopefully providing you with an experience of a lifetime. We are very experienced battlefield guides, but that does not make us a tour company or travel agency. We do this, because we like to!


Pricing:


We ask you to compensate our fuel cost and we appreciate it very much if you make a cash donation to the Remember September 1944 foundation. As a foundation we have placed monuments in honor of the veterans of Operation Market Garden, held exhibitions in local libraries and schools, gave lectures for historical groups and school classes and we have a privately owned museum in Mook (the Netherlands).


Our goal is to provide information to anyone who is interested about Operation Market Garden. Keep the memory alive, lest we forget!

Feel free to contact us to plan your own battlfield tour.


We hope to meet you soon.


Warm regards,


Christian Dijkhuizen & Tom Peeters
