Amsterdam-Arnhem Day Excursion

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a tour company/guide for a day excursion from Amsterdam to Arnhem for sightseeing revolving around WWII Operation Market Garden.  I tried one person, "Murk", but he is booked for the day(s) we are in Amsterdam, Sept. 18 and 19.  I prefer a private tour but willing to accept a semi-private tour and somewhat customized.  

 

If you know such a person/company, please let me know and how you felt about the tour.

 

Thank you,

 

Bill

Arnhem is about 45/60 minutes drive away from Amsterdam. Also there are frequent trains between the cities. https://www.ns.nl/en

I cannot help you with a tour, but you can check this Arnhem website for lots of information. https://en.visitarnhem.com/to-see/battle-of-arnhem

Why not contact the tourism office there, maybe they can help you.

PS You better post this on the other western europe section as that is where questions re The Netherlands etc. are asked and answered.

Did you already find a good guide?  A friend and his wife, with whom we spend the day and dinner today, mentioned as a very good possibility someone we both know.  Was a surprise to me. He told me that the man concerned wrote a book about the battle of Arnhem and that he participated in the realisation of a statue that will be unveiled this september during the commemoration of the battle. He is living in my village near Rotterdam and a retired teacher and artist.  A trustworthy person.

If you did not find a guide yet, I will gladly ask him whether he is available and will "do the job". 

 

Please notice that I will leave next Saturday on the m.s. Rotterdam. I hope you will read this message.

In the meantime I received an e-mail in which he let me know that he is available on the 18th or 19th of September.  He stated that it is dependent on your interests and wishes  whether he is the right person as your guide. As the Operation Market Garden was 75 years ago many events take place in september. 

If you send me a message  I will send you his e-mail address and telephone number, so you will be able to contact him.  My address is (without spaces of course)   iperenjl    at  box   dot   nl       I hope this will reach you in time and  lead  to a succesfull excursion to Arnhem. 

Greetings, Lenny
