Just got back from this tour with Andre. His knowledge and obvious enthusiasm for his tours is infectious. He brings the experience to life by helping visualise what was actually taking place at moment in time. Highly recommended. Thanks Andre!

Five of us took the morning tour with Andre and what a most enjoyable experience it was. Andre is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and conveyed the history with much detail. We all enjoyed it very much. I would certainly take another tour with him.

We did a morning four hour tour and saw many historic sites around Ieper. Unfortunately the guide wasn't as engaging as I've experienced in other companies.
