Wayne & Mary Rudolph – “can’t tell you how much we enjoyed the trip, mum was just “over the moon” and has been telling everyone how great everyone was and how impressed she was with your organisation and knowledge. We really had a great time.”

“My mother booked us on the Colditz trip in October 2011 for my 18th birthday, which was our first trip with MHT, since then we have been on several more and have even more booked ! MHT is a very individual military history tour company, offering a vast range of trips and welcomes those of all ages and backgrounds. If you like small groups and prefer to hear the stories of locations as opposed to just seeing them, then MHT is for you.” ” Ashley has also now visited Auschwitz, the Dambusters, Norwegian Commando Raids, Cockleshell Heroes Raid, St Naziare Raid, Bruneval Raid, Himmler’s SS Wewelsburg Castle, Sarajevo June 1914, Jersey and Operation Market Garden! – Ashley Barnett 

Cathy Mitchell “Auschwitz was my second trip with MHT, having been to Colditz previously. This was a very emotional trip, aided by the storytelling prowess of Nick Jackson, pictured above. We covered a vast amount in three days, seeing Krakow Old Town, Plaszow Forced Labour Camp, the Old Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz, the WW2 Jewish Ghetto of Podgórze, Oskar Schindler’s Factory and of course both camps at Auschwitz and ‘The Ramp’ … and much more! I really liked the small group format. Looking forward to many trips in the future !”

 Allen Martin – “It goes without saying that the past three days and especially the midnight walks will be treasured memories that I can recount over and over again in the coming years.”

Jim & Ron Jones - “I’m writing to say thanks for all your organizing efforts for our trip, very good indeed. Although my dad has walking difficulties, I don’t think he could have got any more enjoyment and interest out of it.”

Philip Brough & John Sharratt - “We were more than pleased with the result. Everything went smoothly. Our guide was a fount of information – all delivered at the correct time in the trip and more than sufficient to answer any query. The effort that he put in was exemplary. “

Colin Turner – “amazing time, one of those ‘once in a life time trips’. WelI organised, very interesting and thoroughly enjoyable. I would recommend the trip to any enthusiast. I will be going again next year – if only to do better at the next pub quiz MHT organises on our final night!” N.B. Colin did return and fortunatley, his team did win the quiz!

Wayne Francis – “would just like to say thanks for a great couple of days, it was so interesting and at the same time relaxing. Everybody on the trip was good company. Will be going again.” He did and also to Stalag Luft III.

Anastatia Howell - “I accompanied someone as their partner and as I am not a Colditz or Military History enthusiast I did not know what to expect. Even though I did not know much about the Castle or the POWs I will definitely be going again. Very interesting and relaxing at the same time.”

Robbie & Jamie Evans – “My son booked with MHT and our expectations were more than exceeded. MHT’s knowledge and experience is vast, however, their delivery is tailored just right for the practising WW2 war anorak and novice. I have recommended to all my family and friends, if they are interested in military history, this is a trip not to be missed.”

Alan Bland – “Having previously read several Colditz books the trip brought them to life. Great insight into this piece of history. Will be joining you again on another trip. Thanks.”

Roy Vollrath – “Many thanks for a well-organised trip. I hope you prosper in your attempt to bring “Historic Tourism” to East Germany. 45 years of the DDR and Russian occupation must have sapped the will of the people for entrepreneurism.”

Wing Commander Stephen Phelps & his wife Julie, a lecturer for the MoD – “Thank you for a great visit. Steve and I really enjoyed it. We’ll be happy to recommend your trips there – you certainly know your stuff and I’m very glad we found you.”

Colonel (Ret’d) Michael Gill MBE (son of Lt. Derek Gill former Colditz POW) – “Many many thanks for all your efforts in setting up and running the visit. The whole thing went very smoothly and your commentary was pitched exactly right.”

Allan & Margaret Johnson - “Just wanted to reiterate our thanks for an excellent trip. Both Margaret and I really enjoyed it both the history side and socially.”

Derek & Clive Edwards – “A really big thank you from Clive and myself re the trip. We both thoroughly enjoyed it  and I’m already counting the days till the Colditz/Sagan Trip.” They have since been on a further 3 trips.

Barry Gill (on behalf of his 7 friends) – “Just a little note to say thank you from all of us for a brilliant tour, the guys have not stopped talking about it and are thinking of going back to Germany in the very near future.”

Squadron Leader (Ret’d) Malcolm Laidlay – “I thought the whole package was extremely well organised and excellent value. As far as I am concerned it was one of the most fascinating visits I have ever made. In my opinion, this can be attributed, firstly, to your encyclopedic knowledge of the subject and, secondly, to the manner in which you put it across.”

Rob Sproston – “Just want to say a big thank you for the three days, very enjoyable and with good company which helps.”
