Tour Description 

“The National WWII Museum provides vivid insight into the “war that changed the world.” But nothing can tell the story of that war more dramatically than a visit to the actual places where victory was fought for and won. Our program allows you to experience these journeys in first-class comfort as you go to the beaches, bridges, cities, and villages where crucial battles took place and history-making decisions were made. Guided by top experts in WWII history and the Museum’s exclusive guides in Normandy, you’ll hear the personal stories and walk in the footsteps of the Citizen Soldiers who fought for the freedom we enjoy today.

Optional Three Day Pre-Tour Extension Program We’re pleased to offer “Churchill’s London”, a three-day optional pre-tour extension program. Guests will enjoy two-nights at the five-star JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel. Steeped in history, WWII brought dramatic changes to this hotel as the hotel’s Great Room became home to the Officers’ Sunday Club Entertainment for 300,000 officers in 1939. The hotel was also used as an annex to the Immigration Section of the US Embassy. In 1943, the hotel became the largest US Officers’ mess, serving 5.5 million meals in two years. This program includes expert led tours of Churchill’s War Rooms, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Imperial War Museum.
