My wife and I recently did this tour with Caude and highly recommend it for those who want to see for themselves where so much history took place. Claude is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and I am still coming to grips with the enormity of the armed struggle that took place there. For me, standing on the Messiness Ridge looking down the gentle rise up which the allies had to advance was a revelation. That gentle slope was a major strategic advantage to the holder of the high ground and countless live were expended in the struggle to control it.
We saw place names and went through villages that I had only seen in history books. Messines, Ypres, Poperinge, Polygon Wood, Hellfire Corner and many others.
A very memorable tour that will stay with me for a long time. We finished at the Menin Gate in Ypres for the evening service and I was amazed at the number of visitors who attended.
Thanks Claude for a very special time..
Personalized tour with a guide who could relate to the histyory of the battles. The guide also provided axtra detours of some of the Memorials which we wanted to see.
Exceptional tour of the Memorial in France. The guide gave us a fantastic overview of WWI conditions, battles and history
This excursion was completely over and above anything we expected!
Claude, our guide, is top notch. Very knowledgeable and helpful.
We would highly recommend this excursion.
This was an excellent tour to learn about the Canadian experience in WWI. It is a tour in a small van 6/7 people max so very personal attention and we were very fortunate to be the only clients that day. Claude, our, guide was very knowledgeable about Canada's role in the battles and the impact. We visited the key sites including Vime, Passchendale , Ypres etc There was a good mix of cemeteries, battle sites and museums. Claude kept it interesting and paced things well. The day ended with the last post at the Menin Gate. A very memorable full day. Highly recommended. I should also mention the wonderful student guides at Vimy.
Our guide, Claude, was outstanding. We originally planned to tour the WW1 sites by ourselves, but opted for the tour. Solo would have been very difficult due to poor signage and other factors. The tour was good value and well worth the money. We departed from Lille. Claude was knowledgeable!
Claude was a very competent and knowledgeable guide. The day's history lesson was conducted in a lovely air conditioned vehicle which was handy as it was a little hot and humid. We had a relative that we had hoped to see mentioned on a memorial and Claude ensured that this was accomplished. My voucher said that we had to pay for lunch but Claude was a very kind host and gave us lunch. The lunch could have been delayed as the tea rooms were crowded so he ordered the food and took us off to see a mine crater so that we didn't lose any time from the day. Because one of the museums was unexpectedly closed, he took us to another cemetery in Arras and then took us through the Citadel. These last were not part of the normal tour but he made sure we had a fabulous day
This tour was very interesting and emotional. A must for all Australians
This was an excellent all day tour which we highly recommend. Our guide Claude picked us up directly at our hotel at 9:00 and we went straight to the Vimy Ridge site, where we spent the majority of the morning. We visited the memorial, museum, cemetery and tunnels and drove around the site. We then drove to the Battle of the Somme sites where we had a good lunch at a small country restaurant restaurant. In the afternoon we visited Australian battlegrounds and cemetery, a large crater created by an explosion under the trenches, and the British memorial and museum. Canadians were also involved at these sites as evidenced by gravestones in the cemeteries. As we had visited the Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland memorial a few days before, Claude took us instead to the peaceful South African memorial in a forest. Claude provided with us with expert information on all of the sites that we saw, the major WW1 battles in both France and Belgium, and all sorts of other information on northern France and Belgium. We had ample opportunities to ask questions and get further elaboration.
