Do you need help planning your World War II trip?
With all the things you need to consider when planning a trip—hotels, transportation, activities, tours, etc.—travel can quickly become overwhelming. If you’re feeling intimidated by the ocean of information out there or simply don’t have the time to plan a detailed trip on your own, I’m here to help!
Custom Itinerary Planning from Destination: WWII
Stop wasting time on resources that don’t answer your specific questions or cater to your unique travel needs and wants. Instead, I will work with you directly to create a custom, detailed daily itinerary and destination guide for your specific trip so you don’t have to.
A little about me
Hi, I’m Ashley—a World War II historian, travel expert, and tour guide (among other things) who has visited 30 countries on 4 continents. I specialize in travel throughout Europe and the Americas with a focus on World War II museums, memorials, battlefields, ruins, and other sites of interest. (But I regularly plan trips of all kinds—epic hiking adventures, urban exploration, cultural festivals, and just plain ol’ touristing around.)
I hold a master’s degree in World War II Studies from Arizona State University as a result of their unique partnership with the National WWII Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana. Combining my two loves, I read, write, and research extensively on both World War II and travel topics. I spend a significant amount of time each year in Germany (mostly) with France and Italy close behind.
I am the tour manager and lead tour guide for an international tour company where I help plan and execute unforgettable trips for hundreds of travelers each year. I am extremely detail oriented and enthusiastic about travel planning—so much so that I’ve been known to plan some of my own trips down to the minute.

How to book
Get your custom itinerary started by booking your initial Zoom session here on my Calendly page, by clicking any of the “Sign Up Here” buttons on this page, or directly in my calendar below.
A $50 nonrefundable deposit is required at the time of booking and you can pay with credit or debit card via PayPal. After our Zoom call, you’ll receive an invoice for the remainder of your balance (which is determined by how many travel days will be included in your itinerary). You’ll receive your custom itinerary and all the bonuses shortly after final payment is received.
I am typically available for bookings Monday – Friday 10am-6pm (EST) but I am happy to accommodate if you need to book outside that timeframe. (Just send an email to [email protected] and we’ll work something out.)
I am not a travel agent and therefore cannot make any actual bookings for you. However, I will help you get all the information you need to do so yourself.
I will create your custom itinerary to the best of my ability based on my extensive knowledge of travel planning. I’ll do my best to help you have an enjoyable trip, but I am in no way responsible for any unforeseen circumstances, injuries, losses, damages, delays, price or time changes, cancelations, etc. that may affect your trip. Note that times, prices, locations, etc. of attractions and events are always subject to change.
Because of the custom nature of this service, I cannot offer refunds, but I will do everything I can to make sure you’re happy with your itinerary.

- Choosing flights
- Purchasing a travel insurance plan
- Visa and/or passport requirements
- “Family-friendly” itineraries for small children
- Getting around the law in any way/shape/form

- All destinations – If I feel I will not be able to provide a quality custom itinerary for the destination you choose or for any other reason I will let you know upfront and your deposit will be returned.
