Johanne did a great job very knowledgeable and always took time
to answer Questions. He was very Passionate it was an eye opening tour
A very informative and moving tour. Stephan was our guide. He described events so vividly and we really enjoyed listening to him. I would recommend the tour!
Excellent! Johan was a very knowledgeable guide, and even though it was a long day the time flew by. Very interesting and very emotional experience. Highly recommended tour.
This is an excellent tour which covers most of the important scenes of WWI in Flanders fields.Top marks to Johan who is a first-rate guide.

Excellent tour, a very long day if you take it from Brussels. We were very hungry by the time lunch arrived. Guide is very informative. Some hiccups with the return journey, resulting in 2 women being left at Brussels central station without knowing how to get back to their hotelthankfully another person on the tour helped them out. We didn't have too far to walk but a bit annoying.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
This was a fantastic tour. The guide had a wealth of knowledge. We would recommend this tour to anyone with interested in the battlefields.
excellent tour, especially if you are an aussie or canadian and there is a frequent refererence to the young men who died a long way from home
Excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and showed a great flexibility. I would highly recommend it.
This was a fantastic day, driver and guide were very professional. We visited all the areas that we wanted to see with the highlight being the Menin Gate service. Top tour
A fantastic full day. Very well organised where the tour guide went above and beyond to make our trip memorable. The coach driver and mini bus pick up lady were supurb too. Well recomended.
Fantastic day, promptly collected from our Hotel by Jean and driven for the day in luxury vehicle
Watched excellent video on the way, full day, very educational and informative, comprehensive
We were a group of 4 New Zealanders so got to see the ANZAC and NZ heroes resting places.
Worth doing some reading before you go about the various battlegrounds but our host was brilliant.
Flanders Museum excellent too. Menin Gate Last Post very moving despite it being a cold October evening.
Fabulous day out - more like a pilgrimage though. The knowledgeable guide took us through what life was like for a WW1 solidier - and made it all real. The Menin gate ceremony was everything I had heard about. Fabulous day
Excellent tour. Our guide Dietrich was quite knowledgable and an excellent presenter. He provided great context and information as we travelled between stops and at each visit. The Flanders Field Museum was excellent. The Last Post ceremony was quite moving. I learned quite a bit about WWI would highly recommend this tour.
Very thorough and inspiring tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and excited about his subject. The highlight was the evening ceremony at the Mennin Gate.
Loved every minute of it well worth the long day out. Very emotional
This was a brilliant trip and did not seem like a long day at all. The reasons for this were two-fold. Firstly, the exceptional guide Jean and secondly, the number of places visited. The latter meant that one never had more than an hour on the coach, apart from the journey back to Brussels, without getting out to look at something.
Fabulous tour of Flanders region with knowledgeable guide. Visited many meaningful sites with back up of guides excellent commentary. The Menin Gates Ladt Post ceremony was a fitting conclusion to an emotional, but fact filled day
This was as poignant as expected. And heart breaking. And magnificent. It meant so much that we could give this experience to our 11 and 12 year old children. One can't understand the meaning of sacrifice until one stands in Tyne Cot among the graves.
Hints......The Last Post has hundreds of people in attendance so do not have any expectation of seeing any part of the ceremony. Supper was rushed so that we could get a good spot to see the ceremony but to no avail. If you want to see the ceremony just skip supper. Although the cold plate lunch is included, you still have to pay for drinks. Essex Field Hospital is eye opening reminder of the medical care so many received in limited conditions, but involves a treacherous walk on uneven ground on an unmarked trail and is not suitable for the elderly or those with mobility issues if we had not held onto my elderly mother she would have gone down and injured herself.
The only disappointment was having to listen to our tour guide's extremist political views for the duration of the tour. I prefer objective commentary. Although he provided helpful information on the history of WW1 and details about the sites we were seeing, as promised, his conspiracy theories on historical and current political affairs was disconcerting. Despite this particular tour guide's eccentricity, this is a five star tour.
This was the best trip due to my guide Stefaem Debrabomolea hope I have my spelling somewhat close...the history we learned in the classroom became reality and seeing where all of it happened made it a great day.

The tour was wonderful. The only drawback is the long bus ride to get to the battlefields area. I found many of the sites that we visited very emotive - particularly the monument to Canadian soldiers who were victims of the first gas attacks. Also Tyne Cot cemetery and the ceremony at Menen Gate were very profound.
Very good guide, very knowledgeable. Various stops, enjoyable lunch in Ypres. The Menin gate service and Last Post very moving. A busy day but plenty to do.
Jean, the guide was simply terrific.
Met all expectations.j
