Wonderful trip. It exceeded my expectations. The tour leaders went out of their way to accommodate wishes of the participants. Great choice of hotels and places to eat. Highly recommended.

David and Lorraine, It was indeed and honor and pleasure to have you both on the trip!! It was especially meaningful to take you both the Grafton Underwood to see the air base where Lorraine's father served. I will never forget the tears I shed during the playing of "Taps" at the barracks site!! What an amazing day and a special experience for both of you!! It was our pleasure!!

This was very well planned and was exceptionally well customized to fit those on the tour who had specific needs and desires. The guide, Mark, went far beyond what was expected to make everyone have an experience of a lifetime. David, the tour manager, again and again came up with most helpful and charming moments that could have been missed otherwise. Their base knowledge on this field is amazing. They are a terrific team! The hotels were in great locations and quite comfortable but the most amazing features we found were the local people we were introduced to in so many places. In each case they were dedicated to preserving the history of the place and communicating it to our group. Again and again I found myself wanting to spend another day or two in the site or come again another day. We will certainly try to join another tour with this team in the near future. Bill Culp

Dr. Culp and Tracy, Thank you for your flattering review!! It was an pleasure to have you both on the trip and a treat to take you both to Thurleigh to the 306th Bomb Group Museum. I know that was an important goal for you to see Dr. Schuler's items and to remember your friend. Your passion and curiosity spread through our group and we really loved having along on the journey. Please join us on another adventure, it would be a pleasure to have you!! Mark Copeland Director of Educational Travel National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force

Mark Copeland orchestrated the outstanding "Black Week" trip we had the privilege of attending in October 2023. His in-depth preparation for visiting the airfields, historic sites, museums, pubs and selection of the accommodations was superb. This trip was beyond our expectations. Mark and tour manager, David Williams recreated and walked with us in the footsteps of my B-24 pilot father and all of the courageous young airmen during 1943-1945. To stand on the runways and hardstands, to be in the control towers and in the decision making offices of the Mighty Eighth at Pinetree was an unforgettable experience. Being at Thorpe Abbotts with Lucky Lucadoo, the 100th Air Refueling wing and Color Guard on the 80th anniversary of the Bloody Hundredth's fateful week, was extremely moving. Mark created a very personal experience for us with his museum contacts at my father's base, station 114 at Hethel. On 11, October 2023, the 389th Exhibition Memorial was specially opened for us by 7 volunteers with a private tour. Being there was heartfelt for me. The thrill of receiving, at the farewell dinner in London, the flag which flew at the base during our tour was indescribable. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you!

Karen, Having you and Don on the trip was very special and I was thrilled that you had the opportunity to visit Hethel where your father proudly served during WWII. Thank you for your kind words and positive review!! Mark Copeland
