Henri was the guide for our tour and he was excellent. He really knows his history of World War 1 in the Flanders area, and actually lives in Ypres. The tour takes you to a variety of sites, and as well as telling the group about each place, we also had time on our own to wander. Lunch was included,... More

This day was the best thing we've ever done whilst travelling. The tour was meticulously organised and Nathan was the perfect host. We had details of a relative we had been tracing and Nathan was extremely helpful and knew exactly where to find what we thought was a grave but was actually a panel on the Menin Gate. Our tour...

this tour company offers a great day tour of the world war one sites in Ypres, Belgium. Very nice driver and guide. Love the pickup and dropoff at our hotel. So easy to have transportation to the world war one cemeteries, museums, memorials. He also took us to the spot in Flanders Fields where John McCrae wrote the famous poem,... More

Nathan picked us up promptly from our hotel. The tour groups only hold a maximum of 8 people which makes the experience more personable. Nathan was an extremely knowledgable and friendly guide, taking us to all the major WW1 sites in Ypres and Flanders. The sit lunch with beer was lovely. At the conclusion of the tour, we received a... More

The booking was made based on the positive reviews given on Trip Advisor. What an unforgettable and moving experience. I cannot commend Nathan highly enough - one of the most informed,... More
