What You Can Expect
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.
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 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.
Tour was excellent. Little late to start but not a big issue. Tour guide was extremely knowledgable and willing to answer all questions. Delivered on all aspects of tour as described. Only issue with tour operator was lack of specific information on pick up location. A small map would be very helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was excellent. He not only knew his subject material well, he approached the tour with reverence for the huge personal sacrifices made by men and women on both sides of the first World War. We learned so much and it was great day.
It is a very somber trip through FLanders. Very powerful to see the memorials to the lost. May we always honor their sacrifice
The entire day was so informative and interesting. Stefan our guide was exceptional with his knowledge, empathy and sense of understanding of these sites, and how we the clients may feel about visiting them. Despite being a long day it is necessary in order to capture that special moment in Ypres for the last post ceremony, I came away feeling that I had just lived a special day and created an unforgettable memory. I highly recommend this if you have time, it is indeed confronting, and a compelling yet sad story. 10 out of 10
By taking this tour and having a very knowledgeable guide, I was able to see so much more than I could have done on my own. The sites are widely dispersed and sometimes out-of-the-way. It lasted an entire 10 hours and included a very nice lunch consisting of open-faced sandwiches in a nice restaurant on the square in Ypres across from the Flanders Field museum which we had plenty of time to visit. Because some of us joined in Brugges, they brought a separate van to take us back to Bruges while the remainder of the folks on the bus returned to Brussels. The Menin Gate ceremony was impressive. I would take it again.
I would certainly recommend this tour and in particular Diederick was particularly knowledgeable and obviously passionate. However the bus broke down on the way back. We were going to Bruges so we already had a bus to get us there but those going to Brussels were treated badly. The organizers had enough time to organize a bus or any other form of transport from Bruges. However they were dumped at the station and told to run for the last train to Brussels .it was unacceptable particularly as there were two elderly women involved. I accept that it was not Viator, but those persons deserved to be treated better than they were.
