Live the memory of a lifetime on a historical or WWII tour by Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours! Our Founder Stephen E. Ambrose, author of the best-selling books, Band of Brothers, D-Day: June 6, 1944 and Undaunted Courage, had a passion for teaching Americans about our nation’s heritage and heroes. Today our full-time historians carry on his legacy.
Stephen E. Ambrose founded Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours, but as everyone who loves history knows his legacy reaches far beyond our historical and WWII tour company. He was the author of several best-selling books, including D-Day: June 6, 1944, Undaunted Courage and Band of Brothers. He was a co-executive producer of the epic HBO series Band of Brothers, which was based on his book. He founded the D-Day Museum in New Orleans, which has grown into The National WWII Museum.
Stephen Ambrose led his first tour, the D-Day to the Rhine tour, in the late 1970s with his friend Peter McLean when he was a professor at the University of New Orleans. His passion for teaching Americans about their nation’s heritage and her heroes motivated him to found Stephen Ambrose Historical Tours along with his niece Dr. Edie Ambrose, her husband, Yakir Katz, and Stephen’s son, Andy Ambrose.
Throughout his career, Stephen Ambrose led many trips to the places that he wrote about, a natural extension of his enthusiasm for investigating history. Whether visiting Omaha Beach with D-Day veterans to pay homage to the fallen, following the path of Lewis and Clark down the Missouri River, or tromping the battlefields of the Civil War, he sought to enlighten, entertain, and educate with his tours.
This website is made out of respect for the victims, the civilians and the veterans of WWII. It generates no financial gain what so ever and it is merely a platform to educate the visitor about WWII.
