This tour was amazing! My guide took me everywhere that I personally wanted to go to as well many hidden gems off the tourist track. Definite five stars from me. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!
This trip is a fantastic 'first' trip to WW1 battlefields, gave us a taste of the locations and definitely inspired us to return and revisit at length these locations. Guide and bus driver were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, made extra stop just to assist one passenger find the location of a family members name, which everyone on the trip thought was very special.
great trip - very moving to visit the cemeteries and battle fields. highly recommended.
We would recommend the tour to the Somme to,anyone. It was am amazing,day with Nicola our guide who was so informative. Her knowledge of the places we visited and more were amazing.
Our guide was very knowledgeable. Questions answered and made the tour quite personal adjusting stops which made the tour even more interesting. Would recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Regis was amazing and you could tell had a real interest in WW1 history. Tour is well worthwhile if you want to really experience the battlefields of WW1.
Tour guide was good ,tour was very informative but very tiring
wonderful tour! thanks!
Excellent tour by Bertrand, a very knowledgeable and helpful guide. May need to return to see other WW I sites in the future. Time well spent!
This was a wonderful day trip for a first-time visitor to the Somme. A great introduction to the battlefields on the Western Front where Australians served. Our tour guide Riccardo was very accommodating, making a side-trip to a small cemetery to visit an Australian grave. I would recommend this trip for anyone who wants a taste of this history, without the hassle of driving and navigating yourself.
A very special experience. Nicole our tour leader was incredible, so passionate and knowledgeable about her subject. Our driver Nat was superb and didn't loose her cool in all that Parisian traffic. Thank you both.
So much history and interesting sights packed into one day. Very educational and emotional but still a lot of fun! Worth wile day!
It wa a fantastic tour. Very informative and interesting. The tour was made even better by the friendliness and knowledge of our guide Nicola.
A very good tour Highly recommend for all war buffs from Australia and Canada. Had an excellent young guide who made it even more enjoyable.
An excellent tour of the World War One battlefields.
We were collected from the Crown Plaza Hotel in Bruges and taken to meet our tour bus coming from Brussels.
Our tour guide was Johann and he was very knowledgeable regarding the history of the various battlefields that we visited.We were so lucky to have him as our guide and I would recommend him to anyone considering this tour.
Guide superb. Thank you for a memorable day.
Our guides Regis and Julien were excellent, friendly, very informed and very flexible. The spots we visited were inspiring and our guides were flexible and made a couple of side trips that our group was interested in
Great trip. It is a long day but time passes by quickly and each site has its own intriguing story. A must visit for all who are staying in Brussels.
Fantastic tour. Well worth the cost of admission!
Dietrich was a truly excellent guide full of relevant information without giving bias in any way. We were always armed with the appropriate facts and details prior to arriving at our stops. We saw cemeteries for both the Germans and the Allies. Canadians, British, Australians and New Zealanders were all commemorated in a variety of ways-be it monuments, cemeteries or memorials. We saw original bunkers and trenches, as well as a wonderful modern museum at Ypres.
Dietrich explained about battles-how and why they were fought and whether they were successful or catastrophic in outcome. He included the terrain and other relevant information about the land in local areas. He never sounded bored or monotone, despite probably doing the same tour many times by now. He was passionate about the history and linked everything up for us in a logical way.
Lunch was included and plenty of time to organise our own dinner before the Last Post ceremony at Menin Gate. A long, but very informative and emotional day for all who embarked on this pilgrimage.
I booked this trip for my family and must admit that I was worried that my wife and two boys might struggle with it being such a long day. I had no need to worry, our guide Johan was excellent and extremely knowledgable and tailored the tour to include cemeteries and monuments for all the different nationalities on the coach. A very memorable and moving day and finished off with the last post at the Menin Gate. My boys haven't stopped talking about the tour since we came back. Fantastic!!!
THIS IS A MUST DO TOUR FOR ALL AUSTRALIANS. OUR TOUR GUIDE WAS AN EXCELLENT HISTORIAN ON WORLD WAR 1. SIGHTS WERE MAGNIFICENT. TRANSPORT WAS EXCELLENT.
tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the subject matter.The tour was very well planned
It was a very interesting and informative day. The tour guide was excellent.
A very full and packed day visiting a number of WW1 cemeteries and battlefields which was inspiring to see and also an emotional experience, particularly the last stop Ypres for the Last Post ceremony where we were fortunate that old soldiers from various Welsh regiments were present and performed a march past - it made me even prouder to be British.
One small point may be to consider reducing the number of stops to allow more time to be spent at the other locations.
The guide was excellent and explained in great detail the history of each location
