ABOUT VALOR TOURS

Bob Reynolds
Robert (Bob) Reynolds, WWII pilot, founded Valor Tours, Ltd. more than 30 years ago to be a resource for veterans, their families, military service organizations, unit associations, reunion groups, historical societies and government institutions with an interest in the Pacific and Europe wartime theaters.

Valor Tours, Ltd. was a consultant to the Pentagon's WWII 50th Anniversary Committee. Today, tour participants are largely veterans' sons, daughters, grandchildren and the general public, especially WWII history buffs, seeking a meaningful focus for their vacation travels.

Vicky Middagh Vicky Reynolds-Middagh took over as President of Valor Tours, Ltd. when Bob Reynolds retired in 2004. Up until then, she served as Operations Manager from the time Valor Tours, Ltd. was incorporated in 1977.

Valor Tours, Ltd. enjoys an enviable reputation through the Pacific and Europe for their knowledge and experience in planning tours for WWII Veterans organizations as well as for assisting them with historic markers and memorials numbering in excess of fifty-six to date including the American Memorial on Guadalcanal, American POW Memorial at Cabanatuan, and American POW Memorial at Subic Bay.


Valor Tours, Ltd. has been leading authoritative tours to destinations of military historic interest for over thirty years. As well as going to key European battle sites in the company of WWII Veterans, we have visited every significant island battle site in the Pacific. Now, as age catches up with the Veterans, our traveling companions are drawn from a younger generation of history buffs and family members of Veterans anxious to see the places their fathers and grandfathers made famous. Many of the actual relics of battle remain to this day, the beached hulks of landing craft, the concrete gun emplacements, and the bullet-pitted strong points. On these tours we rekindle and honor the courageous exploits of America's fighting men and women who went off to war more than a half-century ago.

A NOTE ON SAFETY:
Valor Tours schedules its itineraries to destinations that pose no overt threat to the traveler. We fly on scheduled airlines with fine safety records, and use trusted ground operators for our private land transportation. If conditions should change at a scheduled destination we do not hesitate to postpone or cancel the tour. To this end, we monitor U.S. State Department warnings and travel alerts, stay in close contact with our overseas agents and associates, and apply our own knowledge of an area gained as America's oldest and most experienced battlesite tour operator. The well-being of our tour participants has been a primary consideration for Valor Tours, Ltd. for the past 30 years. We shall remain vigilant at this time of heightened safety awareness.
