I booked a private tour with two friends, Jacques was an excellent guide, although he has done this for many years his passion for what he does is immense. At no stage does the tour come across as stable or formalistic. You will not go wrong by booking a tour with Jacques

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review it is appreciated. Regardless of the number of years that Jacques and I have been involved in the First World War, Jacques certainly more than myself we pride ourselves on remembering how lucky/privileged we are to have what we have today....through the sacrifices of others and this is something that...

My husband and I along with our friends did a tour of the Ypres salient last week. Jacques our tour guide was very informative and the whole tour was moving, and absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend this tour company.

Recently did a group tour with "Flanders Battlefield Tours" Genevra and Jacques were absolutely excellent. Their knowledge of the history of WW1 was exceptional. You could see they both had an absolute passion for their job and their delivery matched. Thank you.

We joined Andre and his minibus in the centre of Ypres for a half day afternoon North Salient tour. There were eight of us (four couples) roughly mid 50s three from England one from Germany. Andre really knew his history, and was able to impart some of his own military experience having been in the Belgian army and part of... More

We are pleased that you found the tour fascinating and learned so much, it is important to explain battles etc easily for all to understand and this we are able to substantiate with the use of maps, images etc. All of our guides are well...

This tour was booked for my husband whose Great Grandfather was killed in WW1. We had previously found his grave and my husband had visited it several years ago. As we both continued to research our family history we discovered that his great grandfather and my grandfather had both been in the Ypres area at the same time. We went... More

On Saturday we spent a moving and emotional afternoon with Genevra. She has so much knowledge it is quite astounding and has a passion for what she does. Although we were very cold and the weather was miserable she kept us entertained all afternoon. Our group was just 8 which is the maximum size for their minibuses. Would highly recommend... More

Our itinerary meant that we booked the shorter Saturday morning 'standard tour' and we found it full of interest thanks to our guide Jacque's tremendous knowledge and enthusiasm. A really enjoyable and rewarding experience that I would recommend to any first time visitor to Ieper and the area.

We did the Grand Tour (North Salient) with Genevra and it was excellent. Genevra is highly professional and knowledgeable. It makes such a difference to listen to someone explain what happened, and tell the stories of individuals, rather than be leafing through guidebooks and fumbling with maps - you really get time to reflect on the events and soak it...

Hello...Thank you very much for your review and taking the time to complete it.

Very well told documentaries and displays to give some understanding of what people went through 100 years ago. A must do visit, it takes about 2 hours but gives so much information.
