We were three friends from Spain and wanted to visit in one day the most important places of WWI at Ypres. Annette was an EXCELLENT guide, the tour that she made absolutly completed our expectations. Without her guidance and knowledge (that is impressive) it would have been imposible to seize the day as we did.

We did a three day tour that covered more than I could list here.As we were coming over from... More

Annette and Christian are great guides. Very knowledgeable, and happy to customise the tour to highlight specific areas of interest to the customers. They have two 7 seater mercedes vans; very comfortable. On our four day tour we have between 4 and 8 people at various stages, with the two vehicles together and separate. All very flexible.

Annette was our guide for the day. WE booked the tour about twelve months out and when Annette picked us up at our hotel she had researched my wife"s uncle records and the 42nd Battalion diaries. She was able to show us the places where he would have been camped and fought including the general area where he should have... More

Not only did Christian and Annette manage all of her accommodation and meals, they also arranged her transport to and from Lille station. The Hotel in Ypres ( The Regina) was lovely and... More

Booked with Camalou on the basis of a recommendation from customers and we were not disappointed. We were booked into a great hotel in Ypres and picked up by Christian each morning and taken on our tour (tailored according to your nationality) of the battlefields, landmarks and cemeteries specific to the Australian troops. Excellent tour! Knowledgeable commentary from Christian. Found... More

We spent four days with Annette and Christian and, while near exhaustion on day four, appreciated every moment of their excellent presentations. Both have spent some twenty years showing people around the battlefields of Northern France and Flanders and their knowledge makes for an exceptional experience. They have at their fingertips the dates and locations of every significant action in... More

With Annette you go the whole nine yards for the whole nine hours! It's difficult to know which adjectives to use on a day tour like this, but by the end we really felt as if we knew the whole area of the three battles of Ypres which included not only the more obvious destinations but spots I imagine no...
