Feedback from several Tours

„Thank you for the experience of peace, beauty, of sadness and remembrance which we found here today. May the dead rest in peace and the living always remember their struggles. We had an excellent two days with Markus and we covered a lot of ground. Markus is extremely knowledgeable. Thank you for all you did for us. “ Mary Ellen & Robin Godfrey, WVa

„Markus, you are an excellent historian, interpreter, guide, etc. We are very impressed with everything you were able to find in regards to the 26th Yankee Division. Your knowledge level is very unique, as well as your connections. We both appreciated how much you tailored our trip to our specific needs. We will never forget our time in France with you! Your friends“ Luke & Bruce Blanchart“

„Dear Markus – thanks so much for a well-planned trip… You did much excellent preparation – above and beyond the call of duty. You made Verdun come alive – striking – and showed me the key parts of the Meuse-Argonne battlefields. I’ll remember our walk in the Argonne for a long time. All my very best. “ Jim Hockenberry

„You have given me one of the most important and emotional journeys of my life. … Everything was perfect, including the Vauquois mine warfare galleries and the Verdun monuments. There is too much to remember, it feels sometimes, but then – no. It will all be remembered because of your attention to these many details. Thank you – also – for always checking the weather to make sure we would be safe and ok every place we visited.But most of all, thank you for the work you have done, and are continuing to do, to preserve and share and educate about the history of WW I here in the Meuse Argonne.I will be forever grateful for your willingness to find the path of my grandfather, Chester Allen Bower, from Pennsylvania. I feel I know him so much more profoundly now that I have been on this journey with you.“ Valerie Young, NY

„Randy and Markus, Thanks for a great tour experience.  Well-chosen sites, good discussions in the field, great personal experiences—well done all around.  I personally saw parts of the Meuse-Argonne in a completely different light, and so learned a lot.“  John Snow, OK.

„These guys are the best.  They truly walk you in the soldiers’ steps.  My teenage son and I feel so lucky that we were able to have them as our guides.  They provide you with a deeper understanding than any book or general tour.“  Matt and Grant Treastor, KS.

„As your knowledge and great passion inspires.  Thanks for helping me to connect to the American group—an aspect of WW1 you know I’m very enthusiastic about.  Your organization was cool to enable great flexibility amongst people with a range of interests and great camaraderie resulted.  I learnt tons and enjoy getting insight into the on-the-ground research you do.  The detail appeals to me and it fits so well with my own project…“ Andrew Mullen, UK.
