My husband and I chose this tour especially because we family who fought in this area during WW1. Our tour guide took us to the places that were important to our interests. We found that he had an in depth knowledge of the campaigns which he was able to bring to life for us using vivid descriptions of what took place at each location we visited. He had excellent communication and driving skills and was passionate about conducting the tour. He also added a new understanding on what our people and the French people went through.

This tour was magnificent thanks to Bertram, his extensive knowledge and wonderful sense of humour was much appreciated. Because it was a small group- only 2 we were able to spend a longer time in places of personal interest and shorter times in others. We missed the heavy traffic both coming and going and while it is a long trip to the battlefields the scenery was interesting. Would highly recommend this trip.

This was the best tour we went on during this trip - the guide was on time, courtious and knowledgable. Our guide gave us a running commentary of all the historical and not so historiacal sites we past or visit during the entire trip. This was further supported by a local expert guide re the battle fields we picked up in Ypres who came fully prepared with photos, maps and diagrams. This expert's knowledge and communication ability was not only enlightening but delivered clearly and effectively. The guide and the expert adjusted the tour to visit areas geared to our country's participation and our interests which further enhanced our knowledge and appreciation of the past events. During our independent time in Ypres we explored the musium and the cathedral as well as the local town area around the Menin Gate. This tour spoiled us for any other tours we took this trip and became our measuring stick (set our expectation levels) for all other tours.

A very emotional day! The enormity of the sacrifice made by our Canadian and Allied Veterans is at once poignantly obvious. We are so proud of Canada's contributions and of the spectacular war memorial erected in honour of these brave people who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Our Parisian driver and our very knowledgeable guide from Belgium made this trip a most educational and enjoyable day.

A great tour for history buffs, and a good way to get a taste of the Ypree Belgium area. Excellent guide with a very small group.

The best and most profound tour I have ever experienced. A special "Thank You" to both Noel and my other wonderful and patient guide whose name I will not begin to try and spell. Your knowledge and reverence will stay with me forever. A life changing experience.

We liked the trip because the group was small. The only criticism would be that after booking the trip I had a question and sent it off and although I was assured the maximum time it would take for a reply or answer to my question was 36 hours it a actually took about two weeks.
