Sebastian picked us up from our accommodation exactly at the time we were expecting him to. We had a breakfast stop, at a large road house which was most welcome. Our first stop was at The Adelaide Cemetery at Ville -Bretonneux where Sebastian gave us an in depth history lesson about the horrors of WW!. We journeyed onto several other significant memorials, with Sebastian providing an immense amount of information about each site. . This was an exceptional day and we thank Sebastian for his amazing knowledge and skilled driving!
But for the poor weather, rained all day, a very stirring tour for any Aussie interested in the history of our servicemen and women who fought in WW 1. Bertrand our guide was fantastic, giving us great insight into all the battle fields and battles as well as the history of the area. One got quite emotional just being there. The trip to the museum was also fantastic. Highly recommend this tour five stars plus!
