Jacques was an excellent tour guide and a genuine enthusiast. The purpose of our private tour was to retrace the steps of my wife's grandfather in 1916. Jacques partner Genevra supplemented our family research, resulting in us being able to retrace the journey from where he disembarked his train, his march to the front line, to the spot where he...

We took the 4 hour tour of the North Salient at Ypres with Jacques. The tour was fully booked with 8 people but 4 did not show up. The scale and horror of events in WW1 in this area is hard to take in but Jacques was a brilliant guide. Clearly very passionate about his subject his knowledge is incredible... More

Our guide did a great job of narrating the major battles, conditions and personal tragedies of the battles around Ypres. There were also touching stories of individual soldiers in the Great War. He truly brought it to life for us in a sensitive and heart felt way. Not surprised to learn that he is also a history teacher ! So... More

6 of us went to Ieper to visit some of the battlefields and to get a generally better understanding of the whole conflict on the centenary of its beginning. I had the good fortune to book 2 tours with Flanders Battlefield Tours. I cannot think of any way the trips could have been more informative. Our guide on the Friday,... More

Visited Ypres last weekend and took a tour with Flanders Battlefield Tours. They have got to be the very best at this sort of thing. The guide spoke perfect English and new everything there was to know about the background to The War, The War itself and the War Graves that we were visiting. Many questions were asked of her...

This is a fantastic experience for visitors of all ages and historical backgrounds alike. The tours are superbly designed to give experiences and information of major battles, campaign strategy, right down to the personal stories and diary extracts of the individual soldiers. The tour vehicle is an 8 seater, limiting the tour to an intimate group. Our guide, Genevra, was... More

Looking at past reviews it has all been said. I have just returned from Iepers and can't recommend the tours enough. Did north and south salient tours with Jacques and they were both excellent. Minibus so not too many people, therefore quite personalised. Not to be missed.

I went on an organised trip with 50 girls studying for there GCSE's what an amazing place to visit. It is so clean and well kept the grass is green the headstones immaculate. It is very clear to me that there are a lot of people tending to the Memorial stones and graves. I would recommend anyone to take some... More

On a recent weekend visit to Brussels I decided to take a train to Ieper to pay my respects to all the fallen soldiers with the 100th year anniversary approching. I was travelling solo and my choice of tour was at first not available as it is a minimum of two persons, so I took the Extended Tour (South Salient).... More
