History Tours

Amsterdam, Holland,

Normandy & The Somme

In Holland, you can learn about World War II and some of  the battles that took place there. Operation “Market Garden” was the  biggest airborne operation in history and your students can get the  chance to visit the memorial and museum, which was the actual Allied  headquarters for the battle in September 1944.

In Amsterdam, tour this interesting city, with the  highlight a visit to the Anne Frank House, to learn about the Holocaust,  how the Frank family hid from the Nazis, and the diary Anne kept.

From a World War I perspective, we can take you to all the  battlefields that Australians featured in across the Somme and in  Belgium. Visit a preserved battlefield, where your

students can walk through trenches and into no mans  land,  take in Fromelles,  Pozieres, Le Hamel, and Villers Brettoneux....the  battle of 1918 that is described by many as “possibly the single  greatest feat of the war”.

In Normandy, visit the D-Day landing beaches, including  Omaha Beach as well as the visitors centre and the memorial to the  allied troops.

Expert local guides used by Wanderers Australia for many years, will guide you and your students throughout your tour.

Paris & London

Arguably two of Europe’s most popular cities, each packed with History and culture.

In London, visit the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, the  Natural History Museum, The Imperial War Museum and see Buckingham  Palace, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square and the Houses of Parliament  with Big Ben. Trips to Scotland and “Braveheart Country”, The  Cotswolds, Stonehenge,  Stratford upon Avon and Bath can all be easily  arranged.

In Paris, there are a number of museums and attractions to complete your tour.

Visit the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, drive along the Champs  Elysees and climb the Arc de Triomphe, or do a day tour out to the  beautiful Palace of Versailles.

No visit to Paris is complete without a visit to the Louvre and also Napoleon's Tomb in the centre of the city.
