This tour was excellent! The tour guide, Stefan, was fabulous and really did illuminate our trip.
The itinerary is very well thought out as you visit a German, a Belgian, several Commonwealth cemeteries and you just gain a sense of the sheer loss, the devastation and the tragedy on each side.
Attending the Last Post ceremony at Ypres, on a freezing November night, was probably the highlight a very moving way to end our tour and remember those who died in Flanders Fields.
A compact tour, the guide is knowledgeable. The last post ceremony on the 11th of November is great.
Excellent tour! Highly Recommend it! Tour Guide was knowledgeable about everything :
Our tour guide was well informed and also skilled at putting World War I battles and situations in perspective. For me the highlight of the day was being able to attend the very moving Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres.
This trip was a bucket list wish. It was a moving emotional tour. Our guide was full of information and very patient with all our questions.
Fantastic experience. Wonderful guide who shared information about not only WWI and Flanders but about Belgium as a whole. Would highly recommend this trip to others!
It was a very interesting and informative day. The tour guide was excellent.
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.
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!!!
Fantastic history. Got to visit Great Uncles grave with the help from the guide.
I would highly recommend this tour - is important to learn about the history of WW1, but is also an enjoyable day out in the beautiful Belgium countryside - just do it!!!
This was an informative tour. The guide was great and knew the subject. The bus was comfortable. Lunch was tasty and it was nice to visit with other folks on the tour. It was a long tour, but we really got a great overview of WWI in Flanders. We would recommend it!
This was an excellent tour and turned out to be one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Belgium. One highlight of the tour was actually being able to go into the trenches. We were surprised that they are still there. The history and the cemeteries were very moving. The most moving experience of all was that Last Post at Ypres. This was a major reason that we went on this tour, and it was extremely powerful. The horrors of World War I seem to be eclipsed by the horrors of World War II. As an American I felt bad that it took us so long to become involved in this war. Our tour guide was also excellent.
A well designed, well paced tour, with a very informative helpful guide and excellent driver. Well chosen place for lunch, just opposite the Flanders Field Museum. Highly recommended
Excellent tour with a small group made the tour along with the extremely interesting commentary the trip met all that we were hoping to see
Excellent! Johan was a very knowledgeable guide, and even though it was a long day the time flew by. Very interesting and very emotional experience. Highly recommended tour.
This is an excellent tour which covers most of the important scenes of WWI in Flanders fields.Top marks to Johan who is a first-rate guide.

Excellent tour, a very long day if you take it from Brussels. We were very hungry by the time lunch arrived. Guide is very informative. Some hiccups with the return journey, resulting in 2 women being left at Brussels central station without knowing how to get back to their hotelthankfully another person on the tour helped them out. We didn't have too far to walk but a bit annoying.
