We were in Ypres for the 100th anniversary of War War 1. Celebrations went on thru out the country. But in Ypres they had a wreath laying ceremony and a ceremonial band. They have been doing this every day at the same time for the past seventy years,except for one day (which sadly I can't remember). It was very moving... More

The Flanders Battlefield Tour is a brilliant way of seeing Ypres and getting the best WW1 battlefield experience. Jacques is an utterly brilliant historian and really makes the tour. It was fantastic and I would recommend this to anyone.

What a wonderfully informative afternoon we spent with Genevra around Ieper. A balanced, interesting and perfectly paced tour taking in a varied selection of cemeteries and memorials commemorating WW1. From the warm welcome, to the good company of the small group and the friendly farewell at the conclusion this was a first class tour. Genevra's passionate interest in the historical... More

One of the best things I've done, made possible by an outstanding and astoundingly knowledgeable guide in Jacques. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

Jacques did us proud!! The tour was everything we had hoped for and much more besides. We learned so much about the First World War from our afternoon travelling round the battlefields. Jacques is passionate, interesting, extremely knowledgeable and very personable. I am so glad we chose to go on this tour. Thank you very much indeed.

If you want a guided tour of the WW1 Battlefields around Ypres then look no further, we were a party of 8 which is ideal as they use 8 seater minibuses. Jacques is such a nice chap and really knows his stuff dates names stats he is really first class. Book your tour with them and you will not be... More

You can read the reviews and believe in them all, I imagine you to struggle to meet a nicer couple. We did the 4 hour tour with Jacques, this man is a First World War expert, his knowledge and passion is fantastic. He has a wonderful sincere personality to go alongside his stories and detail of the events in this... More

This was a first time trip to see the historic battlefields of the Somme & I must congratulate Genevra on her pre-trip organisation, & Jacques for his patience throughout the day & his knowledge of what it was he was showing us, in particular the wonderful monument dedicated to the South African Soldiers who lost their lives in Deville Wood....

This was our second visit to Ypres but this time we decided to book a private tour for the family, two adults and two children aged 11 & 15. Having done a lot of research into my grandfather, who fought in and around Ypres in 1918 we wanted to follow in his footsteps, around the salient. Jacques was our host/guide... More

First time to Ypres to find family graves and pay our respects to the fallen. We had a tailor made tour because as a party of 4 we wanted to see different places which were not in the scheduled tours that Flanders Battlefield Tours undertake. This was no problem at all for FBT and we had the pleasure to have... More
