11-Day Beyond Band of Brothers Tour - 2017

BBOB_D11

Introduction

Our Beyond Band of Brothers Tour takes you on an epic 11-day journey from Normandy, through encircled Bastogne all the way to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest. We walk the sands of all five D-Day landing beaches, stand atop the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc and pay our respects at the Normandy American Cemetery. We journey on east to Belgium, where we explore the battlefields of the Bulge, crouch in the foxholes of Bois Jacques and climb into tanks at the “Nuts!” Cave in Bastogne. We then head to Munich to explore the city as the birthplace of the Nazi party and the heart of the National Socialist movement, including a visit to infamous Dachau, the very first concentration camp. We top off the tour with a day in the Alps of Berchtesgaden, marveling at the view from the Eagle’s Nest and descending into the SS bunker complex that was to serve as the Nazis’ last stand.
