French Incoming is a receptive tour operator that specializes in historical and cultural tours for groups, individuals and families. Tours are customized to each group’s specifications, and while many of the company’s tours feature France’s well-known regions, such as Provence and the Loire Valley, the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I is the focus of several of the company’s 2019 tours.
An itinerary based on the role of American soldiers in France might include stops in Meaux, just outside Paris, to visit its Musée de la Grande Guerre, which is dedicated to World War I. Travelers can also see the Chateau-Thierry American Cemetery and Memorial at Belleau Wood, where 2,289 soldiers are buried. Other destinations on a suggested five-day itinerary include the battlefields of the Argonne Forest and the town of Verdun.
