My partner and I booked Nathan in last minute and he was fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate. He also has a cheeky sense of humour which I enjoyed. He tailors the tours to suit the nationality of the people on board which was really appreciated. We managed to fit in a lot of stuff without it feeling rushed.... More

If you are in any way interested in history and are staying in Bruges, this tour is essential. Nathan is an excellent guide, full of knowledge about the area and the history of what took place, yet very personable as well. We chose this tour over some of the others as we thought that a maximum of eight would be... More

We booked a day tour of Flanders Fields and the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate with Nathan via the internet. It was a great day, we found Nathan very professional and very passionate about history of all kinds. After collecting us from our hotel in Bruges, we picked up two more travellers (7 of us in all) and... More

I booked the Flanders Fields Tour with Viator for myself, my husband and two friends. Pick-up was an hour late after two bus transfers. The tour itself was very enjoyable and the Tour Guide and the bus driver on the tour part of the journey were excellent but everything went badly downhill after the Bruges participants left the main group...

My husband and I did the last posted tour last night. I booked it a few months ago via email which was very easy. We got picked up from our hotel and driven to Ypres to see the 8pm last post ceremony with a few stops on the way to take in the full experience. Our guide Nathan was friendly,... More

Came back after 4 dats on the Cunard Queen Mary. We have been on this ship several times before and know the layout of this very large ocean liner. I wanted to see the battlefields where my Grandad would have been in the war and this was going to be a good way of going to Belgium. I'll start by... More

Myself and my wife went on a day tour of the battlefields accompanied by Nathan. His expertise was second to none, and his knowledge of the subject really brought to life the history and horrors of WW1 on what is the 100th anniversary of the start of the war. The tour included visits to many of the key battlefields and... More

The guide was funny, engaging and informative, and fluently operated the tour in two languages to accommodate both the English and Dutch-speaking participants. I was extremely impressed by how easily he managed to flip between the two languages, and he's obviously done this many many times. He made our visits fun and upbeat despite being serious and respectful about the... More

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
