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

My family and I took the Extended Tour (South Salient) with Genevra as our guide. It was a truly fascinating and educating afternoon that we would thoroughly recommend to everybody. Genevra is not only a mine of historical information that gives a great insight into the background of the War and the individual campaigns and offensives, she intersperses this with... More

The reviews that are already on this site say it all and don't bear repeating. However, I went to Ieper for 3 days to understand more about WW1, and took the half day grand tour with Jacques as the guide. He brought it to life, made it real and visceral, so without going over the same comments as everyone else,... More

We were in Ieper and took the half day Grand Tour. Our guide was Andre, and what great guide he was. His knowledge was second to none and spoke with passion and enthusiasm, and, when appropriate, humour. He didn't rush us, letting us spend time to reflect at each site we visited.

This tour really added so much to the experience. The guide Jacques is -apart of being very friendly- extremely knowledgeable, he really knows his (sad) facts and figures. But above all, he knows the personal stories of the humans behind it, having toured the area with so many WOI veterans since the late 1970's. The tour was a good mix... More

Take this tour. When Jaques (our guide) said to use "there are no experts -- only very knowledgeable people" I knew I had found the tour I wanted. Professional, knowledgeable, and people focused, this is the tour to take for a great overview of what can be a very confusing battlefield. Jaques was welcoming and exceptionally patient with questions --... More

Last year I booked a half-day tour with FBT to test the water as I knew I would be returning with a small group this year. The service and quality of the product was exemplary and I had no qualms with using them this year. I had some specific requests for my group as we were looking for a New... More
