Battle of Arnhem tour by minivan 6 hours

During this Battle Of Arnhem Bike tour by car one of our skilled local guides will join you for a 6 hour guided tour by minivan, in and around the Arnhem area. This is perfect for small sized groups between 4 and 8 people maximum.

Along the hand of photos taken during the Battle of Arnhem and eyewitness stories you will get a good idea of what went on in September 1944 in Arnhem.

Operation Market Garden (17–25 September 1944) was an unsuccessful Allied military operation planned and predominantly led, by the British. It was fought in the Netherlands and Germany in World War II. The success of the operation depended on taking a series of nine bridges, the last being at the city of Arnhem over the Rhine river. Airborne and land forces succeeded in the liberation of the Dutch cities of Eindhoven and Nijmegen, but failed in keeping their farthest positions in and around the city of Arnhem including the bridge over the Rhine.

During this 6 hour tour by minivan a local guide will show you the most important sites of the Battle Of Arnhem.

The preferred start location would be at Wolfheze Railway Station but if this is inconvinient for you the start location can also be at the Arnhem Central Railwaystation.

Highlights:

  • Landings-droppingszone Wolfheze
  • Blockingline(sperrline)
  • Hacket hollow
  • Lunch stop
  • Westerbouwing-Drielse ferry
  • Church Oosterbeek
  • Angel of Arnhem/Kate Ter Horst home
  • Route John Frost (Lion)
  • Urquhart home
  • St. Elizabeth hospital
  • John Frostbridge

All above included for the 6 hour battle of Arnhem tour by minivan.

If you have special request or other sites you’d like to visit, we can always alter the tour to fit your needs. We do need to know this ahead of time.

It was extremely fun walking in the footsteps of our English soldiers. Rudi was an amazing guide with a tome of knowledge. Bringing to life the whole experience. We cannot recommend this tour and company enough. Thank you so much.

Fantastic tour with our guide Rudy. We met up at Ebe railway station and then proceeded to Ginkel Heath. Over 6 hours we worked in towards the bridge covering the landing and drop zones, the initial advanced on Leopard and Lion routes, the Cemetery, the Oosterbeek perimeter and the bridge. Rudy made the locations come to life with his detailed explanations, use of maps and period photos. Highly recommended.

David, a native English speaker, who lives in Arnhem, gave our group a fantastic tour through Osterbeek, along important places of the battle of Arnhem. His profound knowledge and personal connections to a lot of witnesses of the battle impressed even the most knowledgeable members of our group. David was also flexible and very empathetic and thereby guaranteed a wonderful learning experience for all of us. He is a real asset for seriously interested parties.

Met 10 personen een fiets tour (op maat) met gids gedaan door Arnhem. Vooraf met gids gebeld over mijn wensen. Daar is kundig op in gegaan. Gids wist zeer veel te vertellen op een goede manier. Zeer tevreden! De organisatie doet ook veel moeite om vragen goed te beantwoorden.

My friends and I took recently the Arnhem tour by minivan. our guide David is a very knowledgeable historian and was able to tell us (in perfect english) about higher strategy and minor tactics, illustrated by many photos. Having interviewed many survivors of the battle he could talk about the personal experiences of individual soldiers, which was a great bonus for a bunch of old soldiers. The tour should have taken 6 hours but eventually ran to something over 7, as David really wanted to share his knowledge, AND he dropped us back to the railway station afterwards. A wonderful experience, highly recommended

Super leuke tour gemaakt. Helaas was het regenachtig weer, maar dat mocht de pret niet drukken. Petra is super enthousiast en weet veel van de muurschilderingen en volgt de graffitikunstenaars op de voet.

Battle of Arnhem tour 6 hours. We contacted Arnhem Life and had an immediate and helpful response from Petra. Over the next couple of days Petra worked carefully with me to facilitate our tour. She asked if we had any special connections or expectations and also told us our tour could be specifically tailored to our own requirements, I thought this was great. A couple of days before the tour I was contacted by Rudy who gave me his number and photo and told me where and when we would meet. He also asked if we would like him to book a lunch reservation in the former Hartenstein Hotel. True to his word Rudy was waiting for us when we arrived 10 minutes early. Rudy is full of energy and worked hard all day to provide us with as much relevant knowledge as possible whilst taking us around all the important sites. He also brought photographic evidence and artifacts from the battle. We had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was a very special experience for us all. Well done Arnhem Life in every way!
