A great tour. I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks for a fantastic time. Mike.
This is a long day but great value with very good unbiased history. So much to see in such a short time. Very moving ceremony at Menin gate. Jan
This was the highlight of our trip to Belgium. The guide was excellent and very well informed. He chose the route well and added sights to suit the Canadians and Australians on board and helped us find the names of our relatives at Tyne Cot and on the Menin Gate. The tour was very thought-provoking, as we visited a German Cemetery and a replica of a World war I trench as well as the Commonwealth cemeteries. The emotional climax was attending the last post at the Menin Gate. We couldn't have done all this by ourselves. We saw and learnt such a lot. We highly recommend this tour.
After two weeks of touring Europe, this was by far the best day trip we took. The tour guide was not only extremely knowledgeable, but also had a great interest in WWI. It was a small group, 16 people, which made it more enjoyable. The guide was willing to adjust the tour a bit to make sure we saw all the monuments that interested us.
The trip was a highlight for personal reasons too. We found our great-grandfather's grave at Vladslo. Another man on the trip also got to experience where his father fought in WWI, It was a moving experience for all.
This was a long day, but well worth it. The walking isn't too extensive, especially when compared to other tours we've been on. If you have an interest in history or WWI, this is a don't miss!
What an informative and interesting day spent on Tour of Flanders this August 1 2013. Our guide was very informed and certainly knowledeable on the events of 1914 - 1918 and much preceeding history. We were especially thrilled to have the opportunity to visit Hill 62 the site almost 100 years ago where my husbands father and many other Canadian soldiers attacked and were successful. Our guide made every effort to visit spots that were especially important to the visitors, where time allowed. Thank you for an emotional and interesting day we won't soon forget. The MacGregor's
Fantastic! Took my 14 year old daughter. Excellent trip, comfortable air conditioned coach, very knowledgeable, informative guide. saw far more than we expected. Excellent Lunch included at a delightful restaurant. Would highly recommend this trip.
Very educational and VERY moving. Excellent tour guide - Jean.
Highly recommended to realize the foolish sacrifice of so many young lives and that it mostly took place within a 15 mile radius.
The whole day was wonderful. Our guide was exceptional. The Last Post ceremony in Ypres was moving and memorable. It was definitely worth a long tour day to have this experience.
The tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable. The sites were great but became a bit overwhelming about 3/4 of the way through the 13 hour tour. The weather was quite hot so a bottle or two of water is a good idea. It was an amazing feeling seeing those places where soldiers fought and died. The sites are very well maintained and an atmosphere of deep respect pervades. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in history. The day cam to a perfect ending with the last post at the Menin gate in Ypres.
Tour Guide, Jean Wyns, gave us one of the most comprehensive tours that we have encountered in our various travels. His subject matter expertise was spot on leading to a great learning experience on the subject of WWI in Flanders. Time given to us at each stop was sufficient and we never felt rushed. The lite lunch included in the tour was perfect. The Ceremony that we witnessed at the conclusion of the tour will be remembered forever.
This company is excellent and they proved it again with this tour.....loved it!
History and scenery were included as many battlefields are in the countryside.
The guide was excellent........and there is so much to learn, this tour will help to understand a lot more about the Great War......not to be missed!!,
Had a really good Belgian tour guide/driver who knew the history well. Sobering, but very interesting and informative day which left us understanding WW1 better than before. Would do it again.
great Guide/Driver. Much better with having a small number on the tour - no hold ups, Last Post Ceremony finished off a great day.
A long day out exploring a few of the hundreds of WWI cemetries and historical sites in Flanders. Comprehensive guide provided information which sometimes doesn't make much sense until later sites are visited and put into context. Guide very pleased to answer questions and to clarify points. Guide made an effort to include ANZAC perspective if NZ or Australians included in tour party. The WWI museum at Ypres is fantastic and included in the trip.
