• Save More Money - Alpventures® World War II Tours cost up to $2,000 less than other similar WWII Tours - and they do not provide even half of what we deliver! Why would you pay more for less?

• See More Sites - Alpventures® Tour Groups are kept small (8 - 25 people) traveling fast and light in a comfortable van or small bus through Europe - versus you sitting on a large, crowded, slow moving bus with 40+ strangers. This advantage is evident right away when we're off to our next destination and you see other Tour Groups still waiting in line for the bathroom...

• Get Better Service - Your Alpventures® Tour Guide is with you all the way, from day one to the very end. With other groups you often have a different Tour Guide at each stop.

Wouldn't you prefer to travel with a professional, American Tour Guide with over 25 years of local guiding experience?

Brett - Tour Guide

Brett Harriman

We are thrilled to introduce Brett Harriman to the Alpventures Team in 2023. Brett is a seasoned Tour Guide and operates his own European Tours and travel book business...

Brett has been a long time friend of Alpventures Tour Company and its owner, Tony Cisneros. Brett grew up in the seaside town of Dana Point, California, and was fortunate enough to have parents who dragged their kids with them everywhere they went, including on overseas vacations. Thus, the travel bug kicked in early. Brett's inspiration comes from his love of travel. He has driven across America, trekked around Australia, and explored Europe extensively. Brett lived in Australia for a decade and then in Europe for five years, where he was an official tour guide for the U.S. Armed Forces in Germany. In that role, Brett escorted more than 10,000 servicemen and women and their families through many historically rich cities, towns, villages and Alpine hamlets. In 2011, for all his hard work, Brett was selected by the president of the Oktoberfest to represent the USA in Munich, Germany during the world-famous festival. When Brett is not in Europe sleuthing out the latest travel information or leading a tour, he spends his time in Pahrump (55 miles west of Las Vegas), Nevada, where his parents have retired and he finds serene sanctuary to compile, compose and publish his travel books and work on tours. Brett helps us with Alpventures Custom WWII Tours.

Valerie - Tour Guide

Valerie Vaultier

Born and raised in Normandy, France; Valerie Vaultier started guiding tour groups back in 2007 at Verdun - specializing in the World War One battlefields located there...

In 2010, Valerie moved back to Normandy to work at the Memorial Pegasus. As a museum guide, Valerie enjoyed meeting and talking with D-Day veterans and their families. In 2016, Valerie had the opportunity to start as self-employed tourist guide and has since conducted tours for groups and families. She speaks both French and English. Valerie's family war time history coupled with the personal recollections of the D-Day veterans has given Valerie a unique insight to the period and a passion for relating the history of the German occupation and the Normandy landings in a way that helps to experience what happened all those years ago. Valerie's paternal grandparents accounts of the war in Normandy piqued her interest from a young age. Her maternal grandfather served in the French army and was arrested by the Gestapo in July, 1943 because he was a part of the French Resistance. Valerie is the family representative of her late maternal grandfather who was an Army Resistant and a survivor of the Buchenwald / Dora concentration camp. Valerie also worked for the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) as an interpretive guide at the Normandy American Cemetery. Valerie can customize your own D-Day Normandy Tour.

Why you're safer with Us

Your safety is our number one priority. Period. While many of our competitors travel packed in buses plastered with large flags, banners, and logos on the side, we travel "low-profile" in small groups while our unmarked coaches and vehicles staying primarily off the beaten path. Alpventures groups are smaller than most, which makes our WWII Tours the more flexible and safer way to go.  Read More
