There is much to see and do at Arnhem and the surrounding area. The people are incredibly friendly and many of them speak superb English. I would strongly urge you to go. Get hold of the Holts Guide to Operation 'Market Garden' and accompanying map. I actually think that the old Pen and Sword Arnhem guide, by battle veteran Colonel John Waddy is better, particularly if you can also get hold of his map, but it's more for military headbangers.

In my view Arnhem is a fantastic area for a battlefields tour.
May I suggest you contact my friend Mark Jackson, who lives in Newcastle http://pockettours.w...com/contact-us/ as he has excellent contacts for Arnhem (see his iphone app http://itunes.apple....d455634961?mt=8) he may be able to help in some way, before, during or after the trip.
Just say Tony sent you

Are you sure you want to do all the organising yourself?
There's a lot involved in booking coach, ferry, accommodation, guides, visits, etc., all on top of your daily workload.
I do some work (mainly on Berlin and Central Europe) with a specialist school history tours business whom I am happy to recommend, should you decide to go down that route.
http://www.culturetr...study-tours.htm will give you an idea of their tours.
