The final price will not be known
until airfare is released for that period – This will occur in June of 2014.
When the final price has been announced, participants will need to commit to the
trip or have their deposits refunded. Deposits are needed in advance so that
hotel bookings can be made – the risk of delaying hotel bookings is that we will
not get the hotels that we want in some places – Ypres in particular.
Four “Hub” cities, including
Trip will include stops at
places like St. Julien, Vimy, Passchendaele, the Somme and Normandy.
Please request a detailed
itinerary from Major Boyle if you would like additional details.
