We recently booked this tour in Sept. with Nathan and had a fantastic day ... The comments on here are pretty accurate so I won't repeat all the same comments. I did like how Nathan adapted our tour based on the nationalities in the van on this day .. I would highly recommend booking this tour ... great yet sobering... More

On a visit to Bruges in September 2014 my wife and I decided to include a visit to the Ypres battlefields, booking in advance with Nathan at 'Visit Bruges'. 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

Tour was booked through the Battlefield Day Tours website, they were very helpful as the cemetery we wanted to visit was a long way from Bruges. We were a family of 6 from Ireland and wanted to pay respects our our Mothers grand-uncle who died in WW1. Nathan took us on a bespoke tour, he went off and found the... More

Just returned from a few days break in Bruges. Wasn't quite sure what to expect but I fell in love with the city. Lots of little squares with cobbled streets and amazing shops from traditional chocolate to lovely quaint gift shops. We decided to take a canal boat trip which takes in all the historic buildings and a guide explaining... More

We took this tour with Nathan on August 16th. What an amazing experience. We had read reviews prior to going to Bruges that spoke very highly of Nathan’s World War One tour. It was so much more than we could have hoped for. Nathan was amazing. His knowledge and his passion about World War One is truly inspiring. We learned... More

My husband (loves history) and I (not into history much) took this tour by Nathan. It was outstanding. His narrative really brought the WW1 battles alive. His understanding and breath of knowledge is incredible. The tour was small in size (8 of us) and huge in knowledge. We visited WW1 sites: battlefields, the Menin gate, Museums, trenches, cemeteries and memorials.... More

We booked the "Last Post" tour in advance via email (advisable). The emails were replied to promptly and personally. Nathan picked us up at our hotel in Bruges at the appointed time. He drove us to the "Tyne Cot" cemetery, and on the way explained the how war's affected the area we were driving through, as well as explaining the... More

Wow. Coming from someone who never really was a history guru to now feel so involved and intrigued by the powerful messages and sightings of this tour has definitely changed me. I took my girlfriend as a birthday trip as she is a history guru! She learnt a lot, and you got more than what anyone would expect. Nathan was... More

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
