I can only say that this was one of the best tours I have ever done.

This was no ordinary tourist tour but a full four days in which my hosts went to extraordinary... More

Annette and Christian are locals with an extraordinarily knowledge of the Western front and the history of WW1. Our 4 day tour, with a focus on Australians in WW1, was informative, engaging, tailored to the interests of the group (our group size ranged from 2 to 6 people), and moving. Accommodation was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the atmospheric local lunches..... More

Both Annette and Christian were the ultimate tour guides for the three days that we were with them as they helped me retrace the footsteps of my Great Uncle who was killed during World War 1. They were able to research his whereabouts and show me the places he fought at before he died just south of Ypres. Their knowledge... More

We stayed in Lille but in hindsight we should have stayed in Ypres. Our guide Christian picked my wife and I up at our hotel and from then on he simply blew us away. I've been too Gallipoli and always wanted to visit where the Australians made a stand at Viller Bretonneux in WW1, my research showed my great great... More

Annette and Christian are the perfect hosts on an amazing tour. As the group travelled around the Flanders and Somme areas we were shown and learnt so much. We had excellent accommodation and meals. One of the best tours I have ever joined.
