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.
Herbert and Julian provided an outstanding tour day. The tour was well planned for appropriate stops and rests. Their commentary and the side stops at out of the way places made it refreshing and very enjoyable. The coach was extremely comfortable and the group of ten or so we went to all enjoyed the day. The restaurant they arranged to dine at was outstanding, with quick and inexpensive meals for all. The Somme is a somber place with many cemeteries etc and they were appropriately addressed by the guides as well. This is a top notch tour and very highly recommended.
Julian and Sylvian spelling ? were great tour guides. They are both very knowledgable as well as
Personable. They did a great job making. The tour a learning experience as well and an entertaining day. There was a family on my tour that asked about a member who had died in WWI and they made sure to bring us to see their final resting place. It was a memorial that was not on the normal visiting list but it made things complete for that family and shows the rest of us that this company cares about its clients. Thanks guys !
Extremely interesting, at times emotional, funny and educational. Our driver and guide were entertaining and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in this subject despite the early start
Despite the rain, the WWI Somme Battlefields Day Trip was an engaging and informative tour. Nicola was a most knowledgeable and friendly guide, willing to help with tracing relatives who served at the Somme and to go out of her way to discover what her group are most interested in experiencing. She provided a detailed history, which was thorough without being too simplistic. Julian, the driver, was friendly and always willing to help out, whether it be offering advice on where to eat or by opening the bus up early so we could escape from the teeming rain. We couldn't have asked for a better pair to guide us through the once-chaotic battlefields.
We had a wonderful tour and could not have asked for a better guide or driver. They were so friendly and full of knowledge. This tour made our trip to France well worth while and is embedded as a memorable time in France I can highly recommend Viator
Would highly recommend this tour. Our guide Nicola and driver Julian were the best. We had a fantastic day. Nicola is very knowledgable and enthusiastic about history.
