In May 2020, your students and cadets can experience firsthand present-day Dutch culture, and discover for themselves how the unique histories and contributions of the Allied forces continue to influence modern European life and our world today.

VE Day 75 tours

Discover the impact of travel

Our Historic Event Tours give students a different understanding of the world—and their place in it. They return home inspired, confident, and more connected to the world around them.
