This trip was very good value for money. A long day about 9.5 hours but a lot was crammed in. The Tour Guide Johan and coach driver, sorry don't know your name, were very good. Johan was a fountain of knowledge. The lunch provided was also good. Would highly recommend this trip.
Amazing day though long. We were staying in Bruges and had to meet at 10.30am and returned back to Bruges at approx. 9.30pm.We were lucky enough to have good weather which helped as a lot of the time on the tour you are walking outside. Our guide was fantastic. Unfortunately cannot remember his name. He was so informative and knew little extras which made the trip more interesting. He conveyed so much information but did not bombard us so that it became too much to take in. The cemeteries and the battlefields sites were very moving and upsetting. There are so many cemeteries in this area. It is hard to take in the number of soldiers killed here and their young ages and so many of the graves are unmarked. We had a vested interest in the area as my grandfather fought in this area during WW1. The driver was very good and the coach comfortable and clean. We had plenty of time to explore the sites on our own and also to grab food where necessary. The lunch provided was adequate. Our guide advised us where to stand and at what time to arrive at the Menin Gate to be able to see the ceremony and make a quick exit to the coach park. All in all a wonderful day. If only all young people could take this tour then it might make the younger generation think twice about the foolishness and terrible waste of lives in a war.
A moving experience. Tyne Cot and Menin Gate will always be remembered.
Excellent and very comprehensive tour!
Excellent tour and our guide was amazing. Very moving to see the battlefields and sights.
A great tour! The tour guide was extremely knowledgable in all areas of WWI and had lots of information for us both on the bus and when we arrived at each area to be explored. He was very aware of the nationalities of the people on the tour and made special stops that were of interest to different people on the tour. It is a very long and rewarding day that covers a lot of information and stops but very worthwhile
for both history buffs and people just wanting to learn more about the war. I would definitely recommend this tour as a must see when in the Belgium area.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and willing to make minor changes to the emphasis based on who was in the group. In our instance, there were a significant number of Canadians and he customized his information slightly to suit us. Any questions that we asked were addressed seriously and he did a great job of interpreting what we were trying to get at. In a number of cases, our guide pointed out things during our walking around that we would have never noticed if he hadn't been there. A very worthwhile experience!

Really good, Long day but worth every minute, guide was really good.
Bus driver and guide were excellent,
Though the bus was 1/2 hour late.
We were able to find our gt Uncle at the Menin Gate and witness the Last Post.
There were no hotel pickups !
No Cheese Factory, though we did have a plough mans sandwich available. Buy your own drinks.
We expected to be dropped at pickup point, but told at last minute we would be dropped at Cental Station.
And perhaps could get taxi back to our hotel, though we hadn't budgeted for this, so we walked in the dark,
Luckily we knew the way.
I would recommend the tour,,,but clarify details first.
Such an excellent tour. Would well recommend it. It gave me new insight into a more holistic view of what happened and our guide was very informative and flexible.
