This Battlefields tour, led expertly by Paul Reed, was fascinating. Time was given at each place to honour its history . The information was detailed and supported by photos and anecdotes. The tour was carefully constructed to culminate in the visit to the abbey of Monte Cassino. We have already recommended it to other friends whose fathers took part in the Italian Campaign. Many thanks to Paul.

Leger's administration caused some anxiety in obtaining air tickets and on occasions telephone access was slow. Locally all worked well with a truly excellent guide who really made the tour.

A very good and informative tour. Anzio was beautiful and I enjoyed the time spent in both St Pietro and Monte Cassino. The tour guide. Paul Reed, was incredibly informative and had lots of stories to help us understand that battles fought and the conditions the men had to endure.
