My husband, 9 year old son and I did a private tour with Camalou in October this year to commemorate the 97th anniversary of the death of my husband's Great Grandfather who is buried at Ypres. The communication and organization before the tour was excellent and Annette picked us up at our hotel on time and with a warm and... More

We were fortunate to select Camalou Battlefield Tours for our two day tour of Australian WW1 sites in early July. Christian's and Annette's knowledge of Australian WW1 history is outstanding and they go to great lengths to share that knowledge. My wife's second cousin died on the Somme and Christian and Annette had researched his records and took us to... More

Thanks to Christian and Annette for an enlightening four days. Their very comprehensive knowledge and easily understood explanations provided us with a complete picture. We are now able to identify the landscapes attached to the many place names we were familiar with. Walking the battlefields and then visiting the many cemeteries’ really brought home the very real nature of the... More

This is possibly the most informative and detailed journeys one is likely to encounter if you want historically accurate insights into the role of our young Australians in WW1. Both tour guides, Christian and Annette, were engaging and authentic in the wealth of information they shared about the battle fields. They planned and researched their tour to get everyone in...

Four of us were escorted by Annette in late September, 2014 for a one day tour of WWI cemeteries, museums, and battlefields. It was exactly what we were interested in and very thorough. She was so very knowledgeable of all of the details of the conflict in the area. It is hard to believe how much destruction and carnage was... More

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.
