Traveler Reviews

Back to Normandy 

"This tour exceeded our expectations.  We didn’t know how much we didn’t know.  We were pleasantly surprised by all of the in depth information from our tour leader, tour guide and fellow travelers.” 
C. Markowitz – Potomac, MD 

“We had a wonderful time.  There is very little that we would wish to change.  Great variety of WW II and historical sites.  "We will certainly recommend you.”
M. Hebert – Bothell, WA


" If you like military history, this tour is a perfect choice. The tour is well planned and allows opportunities to learn the many details of what happened on June 6, 1944. There were several individuals on our tour for the second and third time. tour provides these opportunities. This was special.  I was impressed with the French people in Normandy. They are still very appreciative of what the USA  and the Allies did for them.  Many of the French homes, depending on which sector of the invasion beachhead effected them, display the American, British or Canadian flags at their homes.

J. Fleming - Hudson, OH

" Thank you for an outstanding tour of France.  From the beaches of Normandy to Rommel's HQ

chateau to the sites of Paris and that amazing river dinner cruise.  We also want to thank Beatrice for her insights & knowledge and keeping us on track."

Bavarian Christmas 

“  After both living in Germany and traveling there many times, the tour that  I took with Bill Ridley (BK Tours & Travel) was one of the my most enjoyable visits to Germany.”
S. Butler – Worthington, OH

“ Tour guides, hotel owner and bus drivers were very gracious and treated us like family from the first day.  The attention to detail made the visit to Germany absolutely wonderful.  The visit to the woodcarver’s home was a special treat.  Annaliese, Josef and Christian Bühner showed us true German hospitality.”
L. Mitchell – Frederick, MD   

What we saw in eight (8) days was incredible."

Dick & Inge Farrell, Pittsburgh, PA 

" I've had the opportunity to travel quite a bit; this has been by far, the best trip I have been on.  Your attention to detail, all the "extras" and your relationship with the people with whom you do business is exemplary.  It has been a truly memorable trip.  When's the next one?"

Beth Linn, Danville, PA

" The Bavarian Christmas tour definitely met our expectations.  With the snow the sleigh ride to Linderhof  was great. "
