We booked this tour after picking up the leaflet last year and we were lucky that there was space for us. The tour only carries 8 people and there was 4 of us. The small size of the group and Nathans knowledge and pleasant character really makes you feel like you are taking eveything in. We visited several Monuments, Cemeteries... More

I booked a tour for myself and my wife, what a fountain of knowledge he is! He took us to the various battlefield landmarks, including the Tyne Cot cemetery, where my wife's uncle was commemorated on the Queen's Own (Royal West Kent Regiment) Panel. Nathan knew exactly the Panel number where the name of Private Leonard Adolphus Springett G/7269 was... More

My two teens (ages 14 and 17) and I took this trip from Bruges earlier this week. We've visited WWII battlefields (D-Day Landing Beaches in January 2013), but this was our first foray into WWI, outside of books and TV documentaries. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and gave us lots of information as we travelled to Flanders. We visited a... More

We read the great reviews, booked our tour, and immensely enjoyed every moment in Flanders. Nathan is a superb historian and went above and beyond by taking us to sites not on the coach tour stops and even located spent ammunition he deftly plucked from the grasses. His knowledge, friendliness, and great sense of humor were exceptional. Our only regret... More

Trip Advisor raved about Nathan and his tours, so our group booked a trip many months ago. We were collected from our hotel by Henri as it was Nathan's day off and combined both tours to include the Menin Gate service. We had a most enjoyable day and got see and experience so much. It is a packed day with... More

Nathan picked us up from our hotel in central Bruges bang on time, in fact he was 4 minutes early! Myself and family spent a very rewarding and educational day in the company of Nathan, he is a very knowledgeable guide who has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Great War and in particular the war as it was fought in...

Highly recommended, Nathan is very knowledgable about WW1 and the region. He took us to some very interesting out of the way places, including a Farm where the barn is full of WW1 artefacts and some real trenches, at a Hotel near Polygon Woods (I think). Although the museums you could do on your own, the additional places and commentary... More

I would recommend this excellent mini bus experience of the Flanders Fields. Our guide/owner of this tour, Nathan Ghysbrecht, was a wealth of information and it was obvious that he has a deep understanding of the area and what happened here before and during WW I. Nathan made this tour so interesting and gave above and beyond what most tour... More
