In September 2019, we hired Reg Jans and Frank Gubbels for two days' worth of tours.
We stayed at the Hotel Melba in Bastogne - around the corner from the 101st Airborne Museum, which is well worth a visit. In the basement, you can experience a simulated bombing from inside a shelter. The museum is a few steps away from the building where nurse Renee LeMaire was killed during the shelling - in 9/2019 it was a Chinese restaurant, but there is a plaque outside the building. And, a few steps from that building is the house where Hitler stayed when he visited Bastogne in 1941 (I think it was 1941).
The German cemetery, maintained by Volkswagen, is a poignant place to visit.
We were interested in the contributions of the 17th Airborne, so much of our second day was spent south of Bastogne. In Houmont there is a small church with a stained glass window dedicated to the 17th Airborne - unfortunately the church was closed when we were there. But there are some interesting markers and maps outside the church. In Flamierge, you can see the ridge known as Dead Man's Ridge. I am surprised by how many people, including current and retired military, have never heard of the 17th Airborne.
The "Nuts" bar in Bastogne is touristy, but worth the price of a drink to check out the pictures and memorabilia on the walls.
