Although this tour was a very long one it was very interesting and informative. We had a great Tour Driver/Guide who had vast knowledge and was only too willing to answer questions and allow time for extended breaks at points of interest. Would rate this Tour as follows Driver /Guide 8/10, Tour 9/10, Value for Money 8/10. As previously stated the only problem being the long time getting to and from the Battlefields.
Absolutely excellent. If you are interested in WW1 battles, it would be hard not to like this. The many cemeteries make for a moving experience. I REALLY enjoyed this, Saw a lot, including the place where the Red Baron crashed to his death. Guide knew his stuff.
Tipped him more than any guide I had before. Unlike American graves, the British Commonwealth allowed relatives to provide epitaphs to be written by relatives. Check out this one,. Could speak for everyone killed in that war, although this particular soldier died on the day that the German general Ludendorff described as the Black Day for the German army, so in that respect he didn't die, as so
many did in that war, in vain.
The small group thing is a good way to do it. However, 15 mins at the Somme memorial was a bit rude. And if you are sitting in the middle you see nothing. So it was a very expensive exercise and I wouldn't overly recommend it.
Gwen (our guide) was as knowledgeable as she was charming, an excellent guide with a manageable, informative itinerary. A real treat - everyone who is remotely interested in Australian history should she the WW1 battlefields
The day was very interesting and the guide very knowledgeable. The day was tailored to the needs of the people attending with enough time spent at the memorial sites. It was a little cramped taking 8 in the mini van but definitely worth it.
