BATTLEFIELD TOURS

 

Welcome to Battlefields by Back-Roads Touring. We have been operating WWI and WWII tours in Western Europe for over 20 years. Led by expert battlefield tour leaders and operating with small groups only, our tours offer a truly personal experience.

 
Our goal is to give you lasting memories to add to your family history. With their vast knowledge and unequalled passion, our tour leaders make the events that took place in the now peaceful fields of Flanders, the beaches of Normandy and now the streets of Dublin, come back to life.
 
Our tours offer the flexibility to include visits to specific cemeteries, not listed on the itinerary, for those looking to pay their respects to a fallen relative or family friend. We consider it our privilege to be able to join our guests for the often moving experience of visiting the grave of a relative or walking in their footsteps along the front.
