Such a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide

Being at the Battlefield sites was humbling. The guide knew so much about history with the right amount of modern and opinion based context.

I visited here as a 15 year old on a school trip & have returned twice since. Looking at the scale of the place, reading and hearing the many stories, and getting down into some of the trenches really hit home as a teenager. It's been really well maintained over the years, which is a big achievement given the amount... More

I do not believe a tour could be better than this. We had a private tour for 2 people of the Iepers battlefields with Jacques, who is remarkably knowledgeable and respectful of the history of the area. Jacques was very informative and entertaining and he modified the tour according to our needs and our relatives' wartime experiences. Prior to our... More

We had a private full day tour for 4 people, one of whom was walking in the footsteps of his father who saw action and was injured in Ypres. At all stages from inception to booking to communication to execution, our experience was truly excellent and I can not rate the experience highly enough. Genevra was a delight to deal... More

Our tour with Jacques was amazing. He is a walking encyclopedia! He really brought the history of the area alive for us and the hours we spent with him just flew by. We appreciated being guided by someone so passionate about this time in history...it made all the difference between a "canned" tour and such a personal one.

We chose Flanders Battlefield Tours based on previous feedback and we were absolutely delighted with our day tour. I wanted to follow the battlefield history of my great uncle who was killed on 15/2/1915, aged 19. The detailed research made by Genevra and the wonderfully passionate, professional and dedicated service given by Jacques exceeded our expectations.

My wife and I took the train from Ghent to Ypres. Short walk from the train to meet Genevra by the Flanders Field Museum. She took us on the 4 hour Grand Tour. This tour is a must do as Genevra walks you back through history. Her passion and knowledge made every site we visited a poignant reminder of all... More

As we were staying in Ypres for the 100th anniversary of WW1, I found the best way to cram the surrounding battlefields in, was to book with a reputable professional guide/tour company. And what better than the very knowledgeable and passionate Jacques and his "Battlefield Tours". Now being a bit of a war history nut and having travelled the World... More

My friends and I have made a number of visits to the World War 1 battlefields and memorials, usually staying in Ieper. On this occasion our regular guide was not available so instead we booked a two day tour with Flanders Battlefield Tours. Although we based ourselves in Ieper, we wanted to visit the Somme battlefields, so we set off... More
