This was an informative tour. The guide was great and knew the subject. The bus was comfortable. Lunch was tasty and it was nice to visit with other folks on the tour. It was a long tour, but we really got a great overview of WWI in Flanders. We would recommend it!

This was an excellent tour and turned out to be one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Belgium. One highlight of the tour was actually being able to go into the trenches. We were surprised that they are still there. The history and the cemeteries were very moving. The most moving experience of all was that Last Post at Ypres. This was a major reason that we went on this tour, and it was extremely powerful. The horrors of World War I seem to be eclipsed by the horrors of World War II. As an American I felt bad that it took us so long to become involved in this war. Our tour guide was also excellent.

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.

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

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.

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.

Our tour guide was very good. This tour gave a good one-day overview of the WWI war experience. The museum in Ypres was extremely good and the final trumpet tribute was moving.

This was a great day. The guide was a mine of information and packed a lot into the visit. Both he and the driver were very helpful with my wheelchair and advice on which sites were accessible to me and which would be difficult. Was a last minute addition to our stay in Brussels but for me was the highlight.
