Just returned from a wonderful day spent in the company of Lionel. He is truly engaging and made our trip to the WW1 battlefields both moving and informative. Nothing was too much trouble and the deep knowledge that he has developed over many years with the nice personal insights into those involved in the war are captivating. Would wholeheartedly recommend... More

Lionel has not only an encyclopaedic knowledge of the First & Second World Wars but also the poilitical & social background. The tour around Ypres last week was very informative, interactive and spontaneous such as when he spotted the Bomb Disposal Unit's van! We visited cemeteries both German & British and Lionel even showed us where the late Harry Patch... More

We did 2 x 2 hour tours with Lionel over 2 days. Wish we had had more time. Great tours tailored to the kids (aged 8,9 &10). Lionel kept them engaged and interested. Highly recommended.

What a memorable afternoon with Lionel. His knowledge and portrayal of the events that took place in this area during the first world war brought history to life. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the area.

The four hour tour passed too quickly. Lionel Roosemont sets the scene and then delivers an excellent tour customised to the customer's requirement. He is the local expert with a world view and an appreciation of the history of the period as well as detailed information on the sites and what happened at them. Not to be missed.

Lionel was fantastic from the moment of the first email. He tailored our private tour to include the highlights relating to Australian forces and was highly organised. I loved how he could send your imagination back in time with humanising stories, photographs and incredible site visits. I am not a military history buff (I organised this tour for my husband)...

This was an excellent tour. My wife's grandfather fought in the area as part of the New Zealand contingent. Lionel customised the tour specifically for us and gave us a real feeling of where he most likely was and the challenges he and thousands of others faced. Lionel is extremely knowledgeable and passionate.

My girlfriend and I just did the Mine tour and the Northern Salient tours last week. Lionel was a great host and we thoroughly enjoyed both experiences. The detail and exhibits that were provided were the best I've seen. The choice of sites and the time spent at each one was just right. What we also really appreciated was how... More

My family and I took the 4-hour tour of the northern salient yesterday. Our tour guide Lionel was amazing. He took the time to walk us through the historical background of the Great War and provided context and personal stories to make each stop come alive. He does this with a perfect blend of respect and humour. You can read... More

We recently booked Frontline Tours for a 4 hour private tour on the recommendation of another family member. We found Lionel to be a superb guide; extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his subject as well as very friendly and helpful. We corresponded with Lionel before our trip as we were eager to visit some specific locations where our relatives had... More
