This was a wonderful tour, made even better by the in-depth information given by our guide Regis. This man has a passion for this period in history and he very much makes every site visited come alive. Each place we arrived at held much significance for Australians. Visiting the War Cemetery was a moving experience - such a dreadful loss of young lives. I would encourage every person, regardless of nationality, to take the time to do this tour.
Brilliant. Guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Lunch was great. Recommend to anyone with any interest in this period of our history.
This was a marvellous experience and a must for all Australians visiting Paris to get an appreciation of what our soldiers went through during the Great War. Our driver was excellent and had so much knowledge of the events and the areas involved. A very somber trip on our way home as we all reflected on the days trip.
This was a wonderful day trip for a first-time visitor to the Somme. A great introduction to the battlefields on the Western Front where Australians served. Our tour guide Riccardo was very accommodating, making a side-trip to a small cemetery to visit an Australian grave. I would recommend this trip for anyone who wants a taste of this history, without the hassle of driving and navigating yourself.
Our tour guide Regis was amazing and you could tell had a real interest in WW1 history. Tour is well worthwhile if you want to really experience the battlefields of WW1.
We would recommend the tour to the Somme to,anyone. It was am amazing,day with Nicola our guide who was so informative. Her knowledge of the places we visited and more were amazing.
Our guide was very knowledgeable. Questions answered and made the tour quite personal adjusting stops which made the tour even more interesting. Would recommend this tour.
great trip - very moving to visit the cemeteries and battle fields. highly recommended.
This trip is a fantastic 'first' trip to WW1 battlefields, gave us a taste of the locations and definitely inspired us to return and revisit at length these locations. Guide and bus driver were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, made extra stop just to assist one passenger find the location of a family members name, which everyone on the trip thought was very special.
THIS IS A MUST DO TOUR FOR ALL AUSTRALIANS. OUR TOUR GUIDE WAS AN EXCELLENT HISTORIAN ON WORLD WAR 1. SIGHTS WERE MAGNIFICENT. TRANSPORT WAS EXCELLENT.
Our guides Regis and Julien were excellent, friendly, very informed and very flexible. The spots we visited were inspiring and our guides were flexible and made a couple of side trips that our group was interested in
It wa a fantastic tour. Very informative and interesting. The tour was made even better by the friendliness and knowledge of our guide Nicola.
The trip to :a Somme was beyond expectations! Ricardo, our guide, was knowledgeable and had a terrific personality.
Amazing tour with a great host. Extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Somme and very eye opening experience into the history of the ANZACs. Tour was very organised and not rushed.
This was a very full day. The experience of visiting the battle fields was very moving. Our guide was excellent.

This was by far, the best tour we have been on. It was recommended by a family member who had experienced it. As an Australian, it was important and an honour to be able to visit these places and walk through them and remember what the soldiers had gone through not just our soldiers but all. The tour guide was fantastic, he knew his history, was very engaging, funny and although French, he spoke English well. The small group of 10 made it easier to get through the day without a problem. This was a memorable and emotional day, one we would recommend to anyone, but particularly Australians.
Wow such an emotional tour and so glad it was only 10 of us. Our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable. To see where our soldiers are and to walk around the most beautifully looked after cemetery was completely eye opening. This place is huge so much bigger than I ever imagined.
This tour was exellent. The guide and driver were very good with a very extensive subject knowledge.
A long day but great! First, our guide for the day was perfect. Very informed open and paced the visits perfectly to visit all locations and being back in Paris on time. The visit to the British, New Zealand, Australian, and Canadian as well of French of course battles was eye-opening. I suggest viewing the series Apocalypse WW I before visiting the battlefields. Learning the history first and then experiencing the locations and visuals that the soldiers saw and experienced is all the more moving. For those interested in WW I and wishing to become more immersed in the experience I highly recommend this tour.
A moving day which gave us a lot of time to explore the Somme area. Our guide Regis had great knowledge of the area and with his iPad brought many interesting pictures and facts to life for us The Australian memorial was most moving and the the visit to the first and third division memorials gave great insight into the huge loss of life and a generation. A must tour for Aussies
While the weather on the day was not good,it helped put in perspective the conditions that the soldiers had to endure. For an Australian with a grandfather who had served in France in WW1 it was both sobering and uplifting to see the recognition that is still present at Villers Bretonneux and Poziers. Regis the tour guide was very passionate and his knowledge was encyclopaedic when it came to WW1. He was very accommodating and on request made a minor amendment to the schedule to show the Australians the famous windmill site at Poziers. The wind was absolutely howling at the time which added to the effect. It was a rewarding experience.
Tour was very informative and the whole experience so moving. Our guide was extremely knowledgable of the war history and went out of his way to show us all he could.
This trip was really worth and our guide was full of very relevant information. He was able to cover detail on the varios armies. He also took us to his favourite view of the river Somme. A great day out and well worth it if you are interested in modern history.
