Salient Tours has excellent, knowledgeable guides for the Somme and Ieper salient battles. They customize the itinerary to suit the clients and the group size is kept small.

Took the half day tour round the north of the salient. Small group of eight which enabled us to dodge the large groups arriving on coaches. Guide was very well informed and gave us plenty of information before allowing us time to wander by ourselves to take in the atmosphere. A good selection of sites.

One can't help but to be moved by the tours of the battlefields and graves at Ypres. All recommended.

We took the half-day tour of the North Salient with Christine, and the Extended Tour of the South Salient with Raoul. Both were brilliant tours, and both guides were absolutely fantastic,providing superb local insight.The arrangements were also excellent.

My two great uncles and their cousin are resting here, having lost their lives in 1917 in the third battle of Ypres. The care and maintenance of this site is indeed a testament to the Flemish of Flanders, thank you so much!

We travelled with another couple and had the minibus to ourselves. Roger, of Salient Tours, was a fantastic guide and took us to Nine Elms Cemetery, where we found my husband's great-uncle's grave. Very moving and emotional. Hill 60 and Tyne Cot were also very important and interesting.

I had given Gen a rather large itinerary for our tour and had additionally asked for some relatives to be researched, Gen didn't disappoint; we saw a plethora of sites and a member of our tour learnt a great deal about a relatives role in the war. Gen included locations that would be of interest to our party e.g. Welsh... More

A trip around the local WW1 Battlefields and Cemeteries makes one consider the absolute waste of life this was.
