This was an unforgettable experience. Our guide, Sylvain, was knowledgeable, very informative, and a pleasure to spend the day with. He clearly and thoroughly explained the background and historical significance of the sites we visited. He also paced the tour well, letting us visit each site without feeling rushed. And he was a great driver! The visit to the Vimy Ridge memorial was especially moving, and I would recommend this tour to any Canadian.
My husband and I were really glad we visited Vimy Ridge Battlefields - it was something we'd wanted to do for a long time. From start to finish it was a very moving day! Nicola was great - very informative and we enjoyed the background history she gave the group on the way as to what led up to WWI - it helped fill in the gaps. She explained the sites, cemeteries and monuments really well - lots of great info. As well, she had a map of the area and her overview of the battlefields/lines of battles was truly fascinating. We really enjoyed visiting the tunnels and trenches also - you can only imagine what the soldiers endured! If we had one suggestion to make though it would be to add an additional site to visit after lunch in Arras. We visited a lot of sites in the morning but after lunch we just returned to Paris - we felt the afternoon fell flat. Overall though, this was a great tour and we highly recommend it.
The guide is very knowledgeable and very engaging. The bus driver was also amazing. The sites are fantastic.
This tour was amazing!
This was a powerful and educational tour. An amazing day , our guide Nicola was friendly and helpful ! A wonderful day to learn about an import part in Canadian history !
Even though it was a wet and rainy day, our tour guide went above and beyond to make sure we had a great day. Nicola was a wonderful guide and answered all questions asked. There is no doubt the day was a great success because of her! We would highly recommend this tour!
We had a wonderful day. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable.
Tour sites were quite spectacular. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. Her ability to explain the sites and the historical background and significance made the trip very special. The small group size also helped to make it more personal. Highly recommended.
An all Canadian tour! The cemetery visits were very moving as was the Memorial. The chance to walk through the trenches and tunnels - we'll remember a long time. This was a wonderfully paced tour, with a great guide who knew his stuff. If you are looking for a name on the memorial, see if you can find someone to help - its not strictly alphabetical.
Would highly recommend.
Fantastic tour...would highly recommend to ww1 history buffs........
Tour guide was wonderful.....well worth the price
