This was a very rewarding experience for both my husband and me, far more than we expected. The sites we visited were well chosen and we were given an appropriate amount of time at each site. But the most important reason for the success of the tour was the knowledge and humanity of our wonderful guide, Jean, a true Flams and a marvelous raconteur who knew a lot and shared his knowledge well. I would do it again if I had the chance and Jean was the guide,
This was an excellent day. We gained such insight into the area and the history. Our guide was (Diedricht?) was most knowledgeable and interesting. It was a long day, but the last post ceremony at the Menin Gate was a highlight.
Long day out but very interesting especially the Menin Gate ceremony!
Super trip through a very emotional part of WW1 history. So many lives lost for such a small piece of real estate. The Last Post at the Menin Gate was a highlight. Tyne Cot was a beautiful spot. The CWGC deserves a big thank you for their work in both large and small memorial sites.
Fantastic tour! The guide was very knowledgeable. Having never gone on an organized tour before we were a bit hesitant, but it turned out great. Everything was just as promised. Would not hesitate to recommend.
most enjoyable,John the guide knew his subject and his interaction with us was first class,i thought i knew a lot about the first ww but how wronge i was,a long day but for us well worth it.
We had a fantastic tour , I would throughly recommend it, my son and I are both interetsed in history, so we really appreciated the detail our Belgian tour guide gave us, he was great and really made the history come alive for us.We really appreciated being picked up and dropped off at our hotel, it made all the differece at the end of a long day. We will be booking again soon.
An excellent day Our guide, Jean, is knowledgeable and made the day so interesting. Taken to see many interesting places, often very moving, and also very informative, seeing things from different angles and learning some of the historical influencers. I would recommend going on this trip without hesitation.
This tour was a great mix of information and sight seeing. Fantastic value, wonderful sites, and a knowledgeable tour guide. I'm recommending this to anyone interested in WWI and anyone who wants to see the sties for themselves.
This tour was easily the best tour we were ever on. The tour guide brought history alive and held our interest for 12 hours. The battle sites and cemeteries were very thought provoking and brought home the pain of loss of a whole generation and the futility of war.
Jean, our tour guide, was a walking font of knowledge and very much a gentleman, cannot say enough good about him, the tour itself was excellent and very moving - would do again but with more time
This was one of the best tours we did. Guide fantastic, lunch nice, and a very emotional tour
Jean was the best! I am a history teacher from NYC. I learned so much from him. He is passionate and so knowledgeable. He is kind and goes out of his way...above and beyond...for each and every one of his tourists! Love him and so moved by the reverence and respect he shows for those men the world lost in the Great War.
