This is a well organised 4 day short tour to Flanders start at the overnight ferry Crossing from Hull, This service is still good value with excellent food and small cabins and when the North Sea is flat Calm it is even better. The coach tour from Zeebruger around the Battlefield site is well covered with an excellent tour guide... More

Absolute tops! Nathan is an outstanding guide and WWI scholar. The small group of 8 was ideal in Nathan's minivan. We were picked up promptly and originally thought the full day tour would be too long especially for our teenage daughter, BUT, the day went by so fast for all of us. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute listening to Nathan's... More

Our group went on the Last Post evening tour. Our guide Nathan packed so much information into this 3 hour tour. His passion and knowledge of WW1 was clear to us all ,from the description of the battle of Passchendaele, the war graves at Tyne Cot plus lots more, and finally the Menin Gate Ceremony, which brought together the emotions...

Collected promptly from our Bruges hotel by Nathan to join a small group. Very quickly became immersed in an incredibly detailed but succint description of events leading up to the start of the First World War narrated by Nathan in his inimitable enthousiastic style. The day long trip through the battlefields to Ypres and the Menen Gate was totally engrossing... More

Outstanding day tour. Nathan was the perfect guide - he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of WW1 and European history more widely, and relates the horrors of history with passion and flair. He clearly loves his subject, and his enthusiasm is infectious. He is a Flanders native, whose family goes back generations in the area, and is thus showing you around... More

An extremely moving and informative trip. A full day that felt like only a couple of hours - packed full of information. Nathan has an in-depth historical knowledge and ability to bring the past to life. As we travelled around the area the stories he told painted a vivid picture of the lead up to WW1 and the impact it... More

Amazing. Just amazing. My mom took me on this tour because she toured with Nathan in 2007 and was really impressed with him. The last time I'd thought about WWI was in high school history class but Nathan really brought it alive and inspired me to order several books on WWI so I can learn more. He's a local who... More

This tour is a must. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and driven out towards Ieper. During the drive Nathan effortlessly provided in depth background information on WW1, some of which I knew, much of which I didn't. Throughout the day we visited both German and allied cemeteries, museums and various poignant locations. All the while Nathan provided... More

My girlfriend and I attended this trip while we were staying in Bruges. I have always wanted to visit, experience, learn and pay my respects to the brave men and women whose lives were sacrificed for our freedom. The guide's knowledge, passion and expertise was second to none. As we are Australian, it was especially moving to visit the Tyne... More

We booked the evening tour to Ypres to hear the last post and visit some of the cemeteries . Nathan picked us up from the hotel in Bruges at 6pm prompt. From the start of the journey Nathan gave us a comprehensive insight in to the First World War from all angles. His passion and knowledge was incredible. His tour... More
