Full description
Get picked up at your hotel by a professional guide who will drive you around and teach you all about how the Second World War unfolded in the Netherlands.

First, discover the most important sites relating to the Second World War in Rotterdam. This historic yet modern city has many relevant monuments and buildings that survived the bombings, including the Rotterdam White House, its City Hall, the Laurens Church, and Delfshaven - a charming historical neighbourhood which retains its 17th-century buildings.

Then, head over to Arnhem where the famous battle of Arnhem took place. Visit the Arnhem Oosterbeek Cemetery, the John Frost Bridge and its surroundings, and find out all about Operation Market Garden and why the battle turned out differently to planned. Historians continue to debate the reason behind the Market Gardens failure but the bravery of the soldiers has never been questioned. In Arnhem you can also take a break to eat or drink somewhere (at own expense). Since this is a private tour everything is very flexible. After the tour, the guide will drive you back to your hotel.
