What You Can Expect

Private Tour: World War II Battle of the Bulge Tour from Brussels

Learn about the Battle of the Bulge on this private tour!

Your private tour of pivotal World War II sites begins with morning pickup from your central Brussels hotel. Your passionate and informative guide will share plenty of historical facts and anecdotes about the Battle of the Bulge and can customize your itinerary to suit your particular interests.

Travel by private vehicle to Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery, where almost 8,000 soldiers are laid to rest. The rows of solemn grave markers are a staggering sight. Your next stop is a memorial between Bullingen and Butgenbach that is dedicated to the soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division -- the oldest division of the US Army -- who fought valiantly against the German attack. The division is nicknamed The Big Red One because of the red numeral 1 on its shoulder patches.

Continue on to the site of the Malmedy massacre, where 84 American prisoners of war were brutally slain by the SS. Over lunch (own expense) in the town of small Stavelot, feel free to ask your guide any questions you may have. After lunch, see an abandoned German Tiger II tank in La Gleize, a small village that took a pounding during the Battle of the Bulge.

From there, continue to Recogne German war cemetery, where almost 7,000 soldiers are buried. As you travel through Foy, keep your eyes open for some intact foxholes at the edge of the woods. Your next stop is one of the most moving sites of your journey, Mardasson Memorial near Bastogne. This massive memorial honors the memory of the almost 77,000 American soldiers killed or wounded during the Battle of the Bulge.

If you wish to learn more about the Battle of the Bulge, explore the interactive displays at the Bastogne War Museum (own expense). In Bastogne, you will also see a preserved Sherman tank and monuments dedicated to two famous American generals -- General McAuliffe and General Patton.

Leave Bastogne and arrive in La-Roche-en-Ardenne where you'll see a British destroyer tank and the town's famous medieval castle. Then, pass through Marche-en-Famenne on your way to Dinant, where you'll view Rocher Bayard, a distinctive rock formation at the Meuse River that the Germans tried and failed to reach during their offensive.

Drive through the scenic Meuse valley and along the highway back to Brussels. Your memorable 10.5-hour private tour of Battle of the Bulge historical sites concludes at your Brussels hotel.
