Excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and showed a great flexibility. I would highly recommend it.
Fantastic day, promptly collected from our Hotel by Jean and driven for the day in luxury vehicle
Watched excellent video on the way, full day, very educational and informative, comprehensive
We were a group of 4 New Zealanders so got to see the ANZAC and NZ heroes resting places.
Worth doing some reading before you go about the various battlegrounds but our host was brilliant.
Flanders Museum excellent too. Menin Gate Last Post very moving despite it being a cold October evening.
Jean, the guide was simply terrific.
A very insightful and somber day - it is incredible to still see landscape affected by events of 100 years ago. Our guide customized a bit for us and we visited the site of McCrae's poem as well as the "In Flanders Fields Museum" in Ypres. The Irish, Canadian, and Tyne Cot memorials were very powerful.
Excellent and emotional tour. A must see for all Canadians visiting Europe, especially with 100 year anniversary approaching in 2017. A suggestion: ask the quide to slow down a bit - quality over quantity
This trip was excellent, our guide was very informative and certainly knew his history of the area. We saw and learnt so many things about Flanders in general. The whole day was a great experience.
Jean was a nice man, but was totally unprepared as far as taking Americans on a WWI tour. It would have been nice if he'd prepared a historical overview of WWI, including the eastern and western fronts, explaining how the was was started. There was no overview. His presentations were wandering and not focused. He seemed to have the information, but presented it in a disjointed way. We cut the tour short because it was so poor and we weren't learning anything. Also, at the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres, we had to pay our own entrance fees: Really??? Are you kidding??? We paid almost 900 for a private tour of Flanders and had to pay entrance fees to one of the museums??? On the positive side, Jean was better at explaining today's Belgium - it's culture and economy. Overall, this Brussels tour was a waste of time.
