Eyewitness Tours attended meeting of Liberation Route Europe in Bastogne, Belgium on 24-25 January 2017.
Meeting was held to support guides who will work with groups on the route, to introduce new developments, to share good practice, and to prepare for the way forward. Following a morning conference for guides, visits were held in the afternoon to the ‘Easy Company Foxholes’ and to Bastogne War Museum to discuss how to use these can be used with clients.
First suggestion – temperatures of -6C and 2 foot of snow on the ground is an interesting way to empathise with the men who were here in January 1944.
A valuable meeting
