One of the major reasons for this trip to France was to assist a friend in finding an great uncle killed in WWI; she had done some research herself but felt that Mat and his team would be the best to assist us further and show us the battlefields. Our guide was John Anderson who was tasked to pick us... More

Make no mistake, you do need a guide and if you can afford a private one rather than travel with a coach full of tourists I think you will find it more interesting. Of course it is very sad to see that some of our fallen heroes were so young. Some of 14, 15 and 16 years of age, and... More

I used this company as I had emailed a few (at the last minute) and Genevra at Flanders Battlefields Tours was the quickest to reply. Well, I then booked onto the South Salient Tour with my 17 year old son and I am so glad that I did. Our guide, Andre, had served 37 years in the Belgian Army and... More

Whilst visiting Ypres we did the Grand Tour (North Salient) with Genevra and Extended Tour (South Salient) with Andre. In each case the maximum tour size is only 8 people so they are extremely personal with lots of opportunity to ask questions and gain knowledge. Both Genvra and Andre have such an in depth knowledge of the Battles of Ieper.... More

Myself and my 14 year old son undertook both the north and south salient tour one day after the other. I was a little worried as to how he would take to the whole subject being a 14 year old teenager, but I need not have worried. The in depth knowledge of both tour guides and the way they delivered...

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 tour guide Pete knowledge was first class and manner in which he conduct the tour could not be faulted

This was our third trip to Ypres and we had again organised a tour programmed by Genevra and conducted by Jacques. We received a wonderful welcome from Jacques at our pick up for an all day tour. Our main points of call were to visit a family grave at Bard Cottage Cemetery, revisit Thiepval Memorial to take photos of newly... More
