Why Travelers Choose This Tour

The Somme is home to some of the most significant WWI sites in Europe. This guided tour takes you along the Circuit du Souvenir (the Remembrance Route), so that you can see some of the most important.

Your excursion begins at your Paris hotel at 7am, when you’ll greet your guide and board an air-conditioned minivan destined for the historic WWI battlefields of the Somme region.

Following a 2-hour drive, you’ll stop at Villers-Bretonneux to visit the site of the world’s first tank battle. The memorials that stand here pay testament to the bravery exhibited by soldiers on the battlefield in 1918.

The next stop is La Boisselle, home to a colossal crater dug by tunneling companies. After marveling at the size of the Lochnagar Crater, you’ll continue to Thiepval village and its WWI cemetery, whose graves honor the memory of thousands of soldiers.

See, too, the Franco-British Memorial before you travel through the verdant French countryside to Péronne, where you’ll have free time to enjoy lunch.

Take a self-guided tour of Péronne’s Museum of the Great War before reconvening with your guide for the journey back to your Paris accommodation.
