The four day you could ever have I now have a great understanding of what the Australian solders went through so brave and as for the respect shown by the people of a France and Belgium is amazing.

Our main points of call were to visit a family grave at Bard Cottage Cemetery, revisit Thiepval Memorial to take photos of newly... More

I didnt realise how little I know about World War I until this trip we did a private Somme battlefield tour with Jaques and the half day Ypres tour with Genevra it was well organised and so informative with very touching extra bits of information such as copies of diary entries/letters from soldiers at the different battle sites and photographs...

As retired High school teachers with family members who had fought with the 1st AIF in Flanders, over 2 days of private tour with Jacques, we enjoyed Jacques deep knowledge and enthusiasm in sharing with us the History and Geography of this today beautiful pastoral area in Belgium.

Flanders battlefield tours gave us a most informative & well-researched tour of the Ypres WW1 battlefields. They worked with James Power who gave us very comprehensive maps & guides of Ypres & Somme fronts. Highlight of our trip was detailed researched visit to sites around a relatives death at Vlamertinghe. Highly recommended suppliers patrick

Our guide was not only doing her job she was sharing her passion - and it showed, she was incredibly knowledgeable and made it all easy to understand. The tour was a small group in a comfy, mini bus. Questions were asked, points debated and humour shared. There was no rush and thoses who wished it were given time they... More

What can we say... EXCELLENT!!! My dad and I thoroughly enjoyed the Extended tour led by Genevera. What a wealth of information we learnt in such a small space of time. Genevera tailored the tour to cater for all the people on her tour. She is an enthusiastic historian and retells the story of the First World War with passion... More
