GUADALCANAL ANNIVERSARY TOUR: Visit the Pacific island of Guadalcanal in August and walk the ground where more than 60,000 US soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines fought Japanese forces for control of Henderson Field and ultimately, victory in the Pacific. The six-month campaign was the first key offensive action by the United States in the Pacific, and after numerous large land battles, seven major sea battles and consistent airborne dog-fighting, it became a significant turning point in the defeat of the Japanese. Our 5-day Guadalcanal Anniversary Tour is led by an expert historian and visits sites including the US Memorial on Hill 73, the Japanese Memorial on Hill 35, Alligator Creek, Bloody Ridge and the amazing outdoor museum at Vilu. We will attend a very special anniversary ceremony at the US Memorial on the 77th anniversary of the Allied landings and we will spend a day on the beautiful and historic island of Tulagi, where John F. Kennedy was originally stationed in 1943. This fascinating and unique tour has something for everyone and would make an unforgettable experience for your next vacation!

It’s with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of John Innes. John was the world’s leading authority on the battlefields of Guadalcanal, having spent more than 20 years walking the ground and uncovering the locations of the most important actions of this most important campaign. John was tireless in his efforts to have the Guadalcanal campaign memorialised, and this work culminated in the recent release of his guidebook to the battlefields, and of the battlefield at Edson’s Ridge being declared a national park. John also formed great friendships with the veterans of the campaign (both Allied and Japanese), and brought many of them back to walk the former battlefields in their later years. He first guided me around Guadalcanal nearly a decade ago, and I owe my knowledge of and passion for this remarkable chapter in history to him. Rest well old friend. You will be missed. ...
