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

We had contacted Christian and Annette on the recommendation of a friend who had used them and recommended them to others who were equally as impressed. We told them we had two days to spend and they tailored our tour accordingly. We were picked up at the train station in Lille in the morning spent two full days with either... More

We spent a full day with Annette who had kindly organised a tour for us to take in the Great War battlefields, cemeteries and monuments around Ieper (Ypres) which were important to New Zealanders. It was an amazing experience. We saw and learned things we never could have achieved on our own and in addition had the very moving experiences... More

We spent two days with Annette and Christian going to important WW1 sites for Australians in the Somme and around Ieper a few weeks ago. It was an amazing couple of days. Their knowledge of the areas visited and many interesting stories meant we learnt so much and found the experience to be incredibly moving. We saw several war cemeteries... More

We spent a whole day with our guide Annette on the 21 August 2013 with a tour in the Messines area which included the town of Zonnebeke. This was going to be a memorial day for me because we were going to the exact spot where my Grandfather won his Victoria Cross for Valor on the 26 Sept. 1917. As... More
