Established in 2006 and formerly known as Pegasus Normandy Tours, Pegasus Battlefield Tours (PBT) specialize in battlefield tours of the European Theatre of Operations during World War Two, particularly focusing on the D-Day Landings and the subsequent Battle of Normandy that took place during June, July and August 1944.
However, by no means is the Battle of Normandy the sole focus. PBT's comprehensive range of tours stretch into many other areas of Europe including Belgium, Holland, Germany and the UK - covering actions that took place anytime from May 1940 through to May 1945.
Indeed, PBT particularly specialize in genealogy tours that 'follow in the footsteps' of particular men or units through the wartorn battlefields of Europe during this period. We have conducted many of these moving and emotional tours that provide family members and occasionally even the men themselves, a tour that is quite literally - unforgettable. With our huge library and vast archive material our experienced research capabilities are second to none. It is through this expansive research that we are able to trace the routes and piece together in-depth, detailed and accurate itineraries that 'open up' and 'bring alive' the trials and tribulations that these men endured during World War Two.
PBT's wide range of tours cover all British, American, Canadian, Polish and German forces during World War Two. Owner and main battlefield historian Gary Weight has met, interviewed, written about and subsequently formed lasting friendships with many of the men of all nationalities that took part. The quite extraordinary stories told by these brave men are passed on within the tours and expertly weaved into the narratives given at the specific battle sites to lend that all-important personal touch. You can almost smell the cordite...
But, whichever style of tour you decide upon, you are assured of an excellent tour where you have as much time as you would like to have your questions answered, walk the battlefields and beaches, peer out from the artillery emplacements and generally soak in the atmosphere of the battlegrounds of World War Two whilst comparing them with the very same places today. All knowledge levels are carefully catered for and tours from 1 to 7 days are available.
We hope you enjoy our website and find what you are looking for...if not, please do not hesitate to contact us.
