There is a dynamic to a group tour that cannot be replicated in any other form of tour.
Old friends unite, individuals find new friends, in the evening groups split off to explore or relax while during the day everyone shares the experience of the tour. Friendships can endure long after a tour is over and travellers plan to take a tour together in subsequent summers.
Where for family or a veteran a tour is also a pilgrimage the group becomes almost an extended family sharing and valuing the experience.
Sometimes there are travellers with detailed knowledge of a soldier, equipment or an incident that features in the tour – some of these travellers are veterans - all have their unique take on history.
Spirit of Remembrance guides bring out this knowledge and the individual's contribution to the tour. Contact us to start creating your tour.
