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 or third time. One of the many high lights of the trip was in Sainte Mere Eglise. There we visited the 16th century farm house that is currently occupied by family members of the couple that lived there during the battle. We also visited a 15th century chateau in Neuville au Plain.. It was here that the 82nd Abn Div fought to defend Ste. Mere Eglise against German counterattacks. The lady of chateau explained the battles in and around the area. Then we visited her garden to sit and talk while sipping Champagne. No ordinary tour provides these opportunities. This was special. I was impressed with the French people in Normandy. They are still vert appreciative of what the United States 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
A Vietnam Journey
“Super tour! The scenery, sights and people were outstanding. I would say the Vietnamese friendliness and hospitality is unequalled. I am looking forward to a return visit.”
T. McDonough – Maplewood, MN
Bavarian Christmas Market
“ 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
“ The tour met my expectations. I had a wonderful time on the trip! Thank you and thank you for taking such good care of my mother."
R, Gilbert – Midlothian, VA
" 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
