Thank you, Annette and Christian, for giving Pauline and I the wonderful experience of your two-day guided World War One Battlefields Tour on 22 and 23 July. Your knowledge of the history and events of those dark days (and later) was amazing and you kept us interested and enthralled throughout the tour. I am especially grateful to you both for... More

Annette and Christian were great hosts in conducting the four day ANZAC tour that my wife and I went on in May 2014. They were welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable. While being flexible in adapting to necessary changes, they were also reliable in meeting all their commitments to their customers. We traveled to Lille on the Eurostar from London. Christian...

My grandfather wrote an extensive diary of his World War 1 experiences when he returned home in January 1919. With the centenary of WW1 approaching we decided to retrace his footsteps and visit the Western Front. Our group included my father and 4 of my siblings. Annette worked with us before our arrival in Lille to customise a tour that... More

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. The... More

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

Christian and Annette, provided me with a brilliant 3 day tour of the Western Front Battlefields which was conducted in December 2013. 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
