Brilliant tour very eye opening to us who didn't really understand the war. Our guide was very knowledgeable but did drag on a bit sometimes making it a bit hard to follow. Had no idea there were so many cemeteries around the area, very emotional ending at the Menin Gate for the Last Post service, just brilliant.
Absolutely fantastic day, excellent guide.
I would recommend this tour to all Australians.
The day was topped off by the Last Post Ceremony in Ypres - fabulous and very moving.
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!
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.
After a very late start because of confusing information about our meeting point, the tour proved to be most informative and interesting. The guide was extremely knowledgable and visited cemerties with particular reference to the nationalities of the people on the trip. It was most touching.
This was an excellent and very full day. Our guide was excellent - achieved just the right tone. There was a problem at the start of the day as we had been told we'd be picked up at our hotel and waited half an hour before phoning Viator. Somehow this had been communicated wrongly but we were then picked up and the rest of the day was fine.
This trip was excellent. Very well organised and a very good tour guide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Belguim. We left Bruges at 10.45am and returned at 9.20pm.
The tour guide was very informative, he had a vast knowledge of the subject and made it interesting for us.
terrific tour with an outstanding guide who made the tour educational,informative and interesting.only negative was that the bus pick in Bruges was late.i had to phone the main office twice . i was not aware that the bus had to come from brussles.the actual tour was first class,
Excellent tour-great guide who knew his subject well. He gave us a passionate description of the Great War and the effect it had on the country.as well as the fullest information on each stopping point (and we could hear every word!) I walk with a crutch and I found the guide extremely helpful to me. Little bit rushed at the end for me.
