Rebecca Cline, Customer Service Manager, Juno Beach Centre
A long time student of Canadian military history and retired professional Army Officer, I participated in a tour orchestrated by Ellison Tours to the Canadian WW I and II battlefields of Belgium and France. In my estimation, our tour was masterfully planned and executed to ensure we saw the maximum and appreciated the significance of our visits throughout, with excellent commentary by our knowledgeable Ellison guide, augmented on occasion by local experts. I found the willingness/flexibility of our guide and driver to accommodate the unique desires of tour members outstanding. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Ellison to any potential customer seeking a quality travel experience.
