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.

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!

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.

although there were only my husband and I on the tour, the company went ahead with it. It was very easy to confirm with the local company. Our tour guide/driver, Bertrand, was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and if he did not know an answer, he said so. This tour encompassed everything we wanted to see, especially the Canadian Memorial at Vimy Ridge. It was an awesome day and well worth the money paid. Would highly recommend.

This tour was everything we expected and more! Our wonderful guide was Nicola. She is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. The drive through the French countryside was delightful, and as we drove along Nicola explained many things that happened in the area along the way. We had no idea such a large area of France had been devastated by World War I. So many little French towns that we drove through had been destroyed and rebuilt, and as you drove along there were many little cemeteries here and there. The memorials at Vimy Ridge are stunning and moving. Seeing the large Allied cemeteries, and the German cemetery was moving. The preserved landscape was incredible to see, and for us the highlight was being able to walk in the preserved trenches and no man's land. Climbing down into the preserved bunker was also a highlight. The tour helped to give us a sense of the scope and horrors of that war. Anyone with an interest in World War I battlefields should take this tour! We were two of the rare Americans who take it - almost everyone else is Canadian or British, and while they expressed mild surprise that we were interested in it, the tour is applicable to anyone with a desire to learn more about this conflict. There were many options for lunch in the quaint town we stopped at mid-tour. A very enjoyable day, and well worth every bit!

Our guide Nicola was knowledgeable and friendly. Along with the incredible tour of the trenches and tunnels and a visit to the breath-taking memorial, we got an interesting account of WWI events while driving through the countryside. A great opportunity for Canadians and history enthusiasts.

We did the Canadian focused WWI tour with this company and everything went according to plan. We were picked up on time at our hotel and were in a mini van with 6 other couples. The driver/guide was very nice and very knowledgeable about the area and the war. He took us to a few cemeteries and explained all of the symbolism. The best part of the trip was Vimy Ridge. We had some free time at the monument but also received a guided tour by a Canadian guide of the tunnel system and trenches. We had lunch in Arras which was just ok but the trip as a whole was well worth it. We ended up back earlier than expected but we felt we had enough time at all of the stops.

This is one of the highlights of my trip to France. Our tour guide Sylvan picked me up from my hotel right on time. He definitely knows his stuff, very knowledgeable, pleasant and a professional. There were only the 4 of us on this trip and we are all Canadians plus our guide Sylvan. We had such a wonderful time. Going into the tunnels and walking through the trenches was a moving experience. I would suggest that when you go to the memorial you have to look back at the ridge behind you because the view took my breath away. Sylvan had made recommendations on where to eat in Arras for lunch and the food was amazing. This is a must see for all Canadians. I would recommend this to all of my friends who are going to France.

I really enjoyed that it was such a small group, only 8 people and our guide. The guide did a really good job of allotting the appropriate amount of time at each place we stopped and visited based on the interests of the group and even though the schedule changed a bit throughout the day I never felt rushed or felt like we were going to miss anything. Vimy Ridge is a beautiful and meaningful memorial and site that was amazing to see and experience. Thank you!

Nicola was an amazing tour guide. She offered an overview of WWI and we agreed we needed a refresher. Her overview was detailed yet succinct and I wished I had had a tape recorder with me. She answered everyone's questions well and we did not feel rushed at any of the three sites.
The bus driver Natalie was also great.

Our tour guide was well organized and very informative. We liked his choice of stops in addition to the Vimy War Memorial. Sebastian was entertaining and added to our understanding of World War I. It has been hard to imagine the conditions for the soldiers like my grandfather and for the local people. My husband and I would recommend this tour to others. There were 5 of us on the tour: 2 from BC, 1 from ON and the 2 of us from PEI.

Very informative tour! I'm not a big military history buff but I still got a lot out of this tour. The small group setting was very nice and the pick up and drop off at the hotel was perfect. Would highly recommend to Canadians interested in learning more about Canada in WWI!
