If this tour had been ten times the price, it would still be worth every penny! Anyone who is interested in WWII history and places to see in Europe would love this tour. I'm so glad I was able to go and have a tour director as fine as [ours]. I will never forget the people I met on this tour and the tour itself. It was the best thing I've ever done.
