Testimonials from previous guests:

"After having traveled with the International Military Institute six times I can only give the company my best recommendations. There is control with everything and everything functions perfectly. The guides are knowledgeable and let their knowledge pass on to the travelers. You know more, when you return home."

− Exceptional service and knowledge (Uffe S.)

"As someone interested in history (especially WWII) it has always been my dream to see and experience key places that have to do with the war. Especially Germany. To stand at Omaha Beach where the Allies went ashore 1944. To stand at Zeppelinfeld in Nürnberg, where the Nuremberg Rally took place. Cultours is definitely a tour operator out of the ordinary. If you want to feel the presence of history, Cultours will in no way disappoint."

− Fantastic! Exciting! Incredible! Simply! (Brian)

"With an old friend from school I participated in a journey to Normandy in the spring of 2012. The theme was the invasion in 1944 in Normandy, France. It was a great experience, a good bus, competent and engaged guide. The hotels and the food were good. Everything came together perfectly. I can only say, that I would travel with Cultours again. I got my money's worth."

− The best themed tour operator (Karsten N.)

"This was a marvelous experience. It exceeded all of my expectations. Your breadth and depth of knowledge and the program made it a wonderful learning experience. Thanks again. I hope we meet again some day! Ps. The food and companionship was great!! Wonderful choices!"
