This 4 day tour was remarkable! We visited most of the major WW1 sites in Northern France and Belgium. The two hotels were very modern and comfortable and the breakfasts were fantastic. Our coach was configured with fewer seats than normal so there was lots of legroom. Our guide Caroline was professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. Our driver Suli was highly skilled. My impression is that all 22 participants fully enjoyed the trip and I would highly recommend it.
This was a fantastic tour. We saw a lot of beautiful countryside, learned a lot about WW1 and made new friends. We took our teenage boys on this tour and they really enjoyed this tour as well -- even though they were by far the youngest on the tour.
Excellent trip covering a large number of the important and some minor WW1 Battlefields.
The Menin Gate Last Post visit was very moving.
The local expert guides were excellent with their intimate knowledge of the particular battlefields and the associated memorials. The coach was comfortable and the drivers expertise around the tiny village streets was quite amazing. Hotels were clean and comfortable.
We would recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the WW1 battlefields.
One point- check initial start time of tour, we were advised 8.00am be there at 7.30. tour did not pick up until 9.00am.
Great tour, very interesting. The tour is run by Insight Vacations and not by EvanEvans Tours as stated by Viator. Apparently the paperwork will eventually arrive in Australia about the same time as we arrive home mid October. If you book this tour direct with Insight you get the option of staying in the hotel where the tour begins. And you get all the correct paperwork making it much easier to find your tour. Not good enough Viator very misleading advertising.
The battlefields tour was wonderful and I enjoyed very minute of it. The only problem I had with the tour was that no one at Viator told me that it would be the local tour operator picking me up at the hotel, and I started to panic when I did not see a Viator bus show up. It got figured out out when the tour director paged me in the lobby, but I think it would be a good idea to let your clients know which tour bus is picking them up. Other than thst glitch, it was a fabulous tour.
