Introducing David O'Keefe to our Battlefield Team


Next summer, we return to explore the Canadian battlefields of France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the U.K., with historian and professor David O'Keefe.





It's fair to say that if you're a fan of History, you're familiar with David's work - from History Television's War Junk to documentaries like The Black Watch Snipers, and Dieppe Uncovered, David O'Keefe may have graced your television screen once or twice.




David O'Keefe & Wayne Abbot's have led them on many adventures ^



Or perhaps his name graces your bookshelf? His three critically acclaimed books, (The Seven Days in Hell + Dieppe Uncovered), were Amazon's top 3 Canadian bestsellers this year for Canadian History in the 20th Century.


Not only an award-winning historian, during the school year, he teaches at Marianopolis College in Westmount, Quebec. David O'Keefe also served - as an infantry officer in the Royal Highland Regiment (The Black Watch of Canada) in Montreal. He was later employed as their official historian for nearly a decade.


In 4 tailored tour programs, David O'Keefe shares his experiences and research with us on the battlefields, providing us with an extended and explorative look behind the scenes of important sites like Vimy Ridge, the Scheldt, Normandy, and Dieppe.


Enjoy these tours alongside our regular experienced team and drivers throughout our summer season, where we will enjoy superior-class accommodation and restaurants with some of our favourite local hoteliers and chefs.


We'll also be reuniting with some great friends on these programs, with special guest battlefield guides Joël Stoppels from the Battlefield Tours in the Netherlands, and Ben Mayne, in the UK.


It is a huge honour to have professor David O'Keefe leading us on these unique tour experiences,


What an adventure this is going to be!
