    What an incredible experience for our family. We did the tour from Lille, France. Claude V. Was our guide. He was a great story teller and historian. His knowledge and passion for history brought the scenes alive. Our teenage sons loved it too. I would highly recommend this wonderful tour.

    What a wonderful tour! Claude was very accommodating and kind. He kindly answered all of our questions as he drove us to all the sites of the area. We had a wonderful lunch and continued on our tour. He didn’t rush us and allowed us to take our time, which was quite helpful for my 77 year old grandfather. Overall, it was a fantastic tour, my family enjoyed our trip immensely!

    We have done many privately guided tours but this was the best ever! Claude tailored the tour to our family backgrounds, Canadian, German, South Africa and Belgium as well as to our expressed interest in Newfoundland. His knowledge is incredible. His pleasant personality and lively comments made this an unforgettable experience.

    Claude was a really good guide. He was totally knowledgeable about the Great War and all of dates and stats were in his head. He made sure he did whatever we wanted to do and gave us options wherever it was possible. The tour was comprehensive and gave us a better understanding about the causes of the war. It was an excellent learning experience.

    This was a great tour. Our guild was very knowledgeable and friendly. Picked us up right on time and drove to the sites. We visited all the sites I wanted to see and he gave us time to wander at the sites, we were not rushed. It was good to have a driver for on our way home we ran into a traffic jam and he got us out of it quickly. My only complaint would be the price of the tour. It was expensive, I will pay for great service but this price as high.
