Vimy Ridge Centenary Tour

The April 2017 Vimy Ridge tour is sold out! We'll spend 14 days visiting the battlefields of Normandy and the First World War, including the Somme, Vimy, Ypres, Verdun, and the Chemin des Dames. We've been able to make a late addition to the itinerary -- a visit to the Maison Blanche souterraine near Vimy Ridge. Canadian troops sheltered in the underground galleries before the Vimy battle. It's full of graffiti they carved into the chalk. The place is not open to the public and other tours don't go there. This is even more exciting because the tours of the Grange Tunnel at Vimy have become progressively more restricted over the years. Looking forward to it!
