We enjoyed the whole day. Regis (driver/guide) was so informative and well-informed (and given that my wife is very well read on the subject of WWI, she is not easy to impress) however she was! A great day! Thank you (and Regis).

Our trip to the Somme was all that we hoped for. Julie, our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the Somme battles. We were pleased to be able to locate the grave of a relation as was another of our tour guests. While it was a very long day, it was very worthwhile with the commentary about the areas keeping us engaged.
Fortunately the weather was perfect

Being from Newfoundland I loved this tour! I found it very emotionally moving. It was worth every penny and recommend to not just fellow Newfies but any Canadian. The Australian sites are gorgeous and also very moving and very much worth seeing! The tour covers both sides equally and respectfully!

We were picked up exactly on time by our very friendly tour guide, all our companions for the day were Australian which was a plus, not sure if that was organised or by change but it worked out very well.
Our guide's knowledge was amazing he could answer any questions we asked and was a wealth of information about WW1 and WW2 and all the places we visited. It was a very emotional day but we had a great day helping each other find relatives names, one couple had a relative buried in a cemetery that wasn't on our agenda but our guide made a special detour for them which was lovely, all in all it was a great experience that I can highly recommend.

As a young Australian couple, we were enthralled by this tour. It was one of the most interesting we have done. Villes Bretonneux was fascinating and it was a surprise to see where our Unknown Soldier came from. Our tour guide, Sylvan, could not be faulted- he was easy going and very knowledgable.

Definitely recommend this tour, value for money. Regis our tour guide was excellent with his knowledge of all the sites visited and was funny. Our group were all from Australia, which was a nice touch to the day. If you have time, this is a must do if you're interested

First rate from start to finish. Regis was a super guide - informative, engaging and professional. I was there with my 14 year old son and we spent the day with Regis and 4 other travellers visiting a number of sites in and around the WWI battlefields, travelling around in a luxury people carrier. As the day unfolded we all got to know each other and the questions and conversations around the tour and our various interests developed. I found the site visits emotional and sobering at times and undoubtedly thought-provoking. We went for a late but delicious lunch in a local bar prior to our last tour stop before heading back to Paris. This tour was a perfect mix of history, scenery, sightseeing and interaction with our guide, Regis, and our fellow travellers. Out of a 10 day holiday in Paris and the South of France with many highlights my 14 year old declared it the best day.

Great tour of the battlefields, so much sad history took place here. You really get a feel for the desperation of those doomed men. It was a moderately rainy day when we visited but that just made it feel more real. On this centenary year of the start of the Great War, it is good to remember the horror and sacrifice so that the chance of another is less.
