BTA44 Intro

Review 2 day Customised Tour

Dirk provided an superb, in-depth tour that surgically dissected and analysed "The Battle", it's progress (which was provided almost as a running commentary as it happened during those days) and it's ultimate, tragic failure. We got to learn personally about the combatants from all sides (which was refreshing) and the tour was interspersed with revealing anecdotes that made this tour come alive and provide a human touch. We left inspired to learn more about the astonishing courage to these men.

Private Tour

★★★★★ Dirk provided the most comprehensive tour possible. He made it very personal with stories of individual Soldiers. Dirk took us through the progression of the battle. Our tour began at the cemetery where Dirk introduced the fallen Soldiers, and ended at the bridge. The pace and rhythm of the tour was perfect for us. Dirk has done extensive research and shared documents in his binder.

Review 1 day Custom Tour

★★★★★ I had excellent communication with Dirk prior to my arrival in Arnhem. He sent me a comprehensive itinerary, I identified a few points of interest that I wanted to see and he adjusted the itinerary to cater for my needs. He arrived promptly at my hotel, Dirk was friendly and I immediately felt at ease with him. The whole tour exceeded my expectations, it was comprehensive and developed my knowledge of the battle. Dirk knows his subject intimately, I totally recommend him as a guide, thanks.
