We chose the four day tour option from Camalou Battlefield tours. Christian and Annette provide a personally tailor-made approach to the tours they offer. Maps of the relevant areas, soldiers' records and the records from the Australian (in our instance) Intelligence services describing the various battles in which the particular soldiers were involved bringing the whole battlefield to life.

It is difficult to find the words to explain how absolutely fabulous Christian and Annette are. Superior experience; unsurpassed knowledge; good humour and complete dedication to client satisfaction are the hallmarks of their service. Christian and Annette provided us with an extraordinary personalised tour of the Ypres area (where my grandfather fought) and down to the Somme over a very... More

What an excellent experience! Annette and Christian so obviously love their work and their passion for the history of the Great War shines through. Our four day tour related to the Australian experience and we learned so much. There was never a single worry and nothing was too much trouble. It was particularly sobering to be shown a live gas...

Camalou took us on an interesting and moving tour of the battlefield areas around Ypres. They were very knowledgeable and tailored the 2 day tour to meet our requirements. As there were only two of us, we had their full attention and they were very mindful of my husband's needs. We visited cemeteries, battlefields, museums, trench replicas, hill 60 and... More

Quite simply the best guided tour I have ever been on! Annette and Christian live locally and this coupled with their subject matter knowledge, easy charm, and great English made them the ideal guides for our three day tour. They were prompt and professional throughout, giving particular support to my elderly father who is now a bit slow on his... More

Spent a day in Ypres during our trip to Belgium on a guided tour with Camalou Tours. Can't say enough positive things about it. Fantastic learning experience. My wife and me were the only ones on the tour (end of March) so it was perfect. Saw some incredible sights.....battlefield areas, bunkers, trenches, Tyne Cot cemetery. Messines. Nice lunch break at... More

Quite simply the tour was first class and exceeded my expectations. I was very much impressed by their professionalism, attention to detail, preparation of the tour, research about Australians that served on the Western Front, knowledge about the... More

My wife and I enjoyed an amazing 4-day Camalou Battlefield Tour with Annette & Christian in 2013. From the initial enquiry stage our hosts were courteous, helpful & very professional. An added bonus was our pick-up from Lille Railway Station, transfer to accommodation in Ypres, & return to Lille at Tours end. Annette & Christian researched beforehand precise details relating...

I had very limited time to visit the battlefields and contacted Camalou two months prior to my planned weekend excursion from England to discuss options. We agreed on a few areas that I would be interested in and the tour cost. Christian collected me from Lille and entertained me on the way to Hill 60 where we met Annette with... More

Wow, what can I say! Christian and Annette have a passion and knowledge for WWI which they enthusiastically deliver. My husband and I booked this tour to follow my grandfathers war. It was a privilege and honour to visit the places where so many Australians fought and gave their their lives and to visit the sites of battles that have... More
