Absolutely brilliant day. An amazing experience and a brilliant guide made it very worthwhile.
Wow, wow, wow.... what an amazing, informative, emotional and fascinating tour. The drive through the countryside was lovely and the places we stopped off are so much a part of Australian history.
I went on this tour to honor my grandfather who fought on the Somme and it was like a pilgrimage. Thanks to our wonderful tour guide who provided lots of information and was extremely respectful.
Fantastic day. Rojis our tour guide very informative. Small group which was great we all got on very well. Would recommend.
The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The tour itself was well-planned. We met some interesting people. Walking through the trenches was especially poignant. All in all, a thoroughly worthwhile trip.
I just want to say that this tour was the highlight of my whole trip, only made so because of our guide Nicola.
Nothing was a problem in fact we got back into Paris two hours latter than planned. Nicola's passion is the history of the first world war. For an Aussie or Kiwi with any connection with the WW1 this tour is a must.
Thank you again Nicola.
Guide and driver were very good. The tour was most informative and lived up to our expectations. I would recommend it to others.
The tour was very informative, although there is quite a lot of information to take in! Our driver/guide handled our small group (only four on the tour) very well - he knew when to stop talking and when to find a spot for coffee! Well recommended due to the various sites visited in a short period.
Herbert was a very informative guide and we visited many significant sites for the Australian troops. A moving day but well worth the emotion. A great visit to an elderly lady in a small village to talk about through Herbert's translation what it was like in France during the German occupation in WWII.
Great tour. thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Our driver was very knowledgable and has such a passion for his job that is contagious as he takes you on his tour. Great day and a must to do !
A fabulous day. We loved the experience. The tour guide was great.
