“Top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012

We took the 4 hour tour with Genevra, a most knowlegeable guide and a lovely lady. Came away with a great overview of what happened on the Salient all excellently explained. Definitely would recommend this tour.

“Our Tour on 9 April 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012

We booked a tour with Flanders Battlefields Tours from New Zealand and all went well when we arrived. Jacques picked us up from our Hotel and took us on a personal tour including the cemetery where my grandfather was buried. Genevra also did some personal research which Jacques gave us a copy of. So impressed. He made our tour so interesting by taking a personal interest in our family member whose grave we had come to see. Also visited other sites of New Zealand interest which was wonderful to see. It is so good to know that WW1 is so 'kept alive' and honoured by this tour company. Thanks for the memories.

“Battlefield Tour - April 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

I had a tour in late April 2012 with 12 other colleagues and friends. The tour guide (Jacques) was both very informative and enjoyable - frequently taking us to places "off the beaten track" to show us areas / items of interest that were of relevance.

In previous years we have toured as a group without a tour guide - in future years we wont be making this mistake again as having somebody with Jacques' enthusiasm and knowledge truly opens your eyes to the scale of the battlefield and provides plenty of points which otherwise would have been easily missed.

All in all I would really recommend Flanders Battlefield Tours for any individual / group looking to learn about the history of this area.

“Two day Ypres Salient Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

Very professional booking process, with clear instructions and very prompt reply.
Both Northern and Southern Salient Tours were extremely well researched and were well balanced, providing a very clear and well explained overall view point from both sides.
Battle strategy, personal accounts and personal histories brought the events to life and were communicated in a very passionate and respectfull way. All questions were welcomed and answered in detail.
Very good choices of places visited, museums, memorials, battlefields, cemeteries, craters and dressing stations.
Provision of maps, photographs and written accounts extremely useful.
The comfort of the clients was met, excellent vehicles,umbrellas provided.
Excellent value for guided tours by such a knowledgeable and friendly company. I would recommend them to all age groups.

“School Tour... Outstanding Guides!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

We took 100 students on a 3 day tour of the Ypres Salient and the Somme (with a brief stop at Wellington Quarry in Arras). Jacques and Andre were on our 2 coaches and we could not have asked for more knowledgeable, articulate and engaging guides, they were really fantastic. I would recommend this company to all travellers, from families through to large groups and we will definately be using them again.
