Recently we spent a moving and memorable day touring the Sommes Battlefields with Lea from Terres de Memoire as our respectful, expert, knowledgable & articulate Tour Guide. Among our small group was a gentleman seeking to locate the Resting place of some distant family relatives. Lea had done a considerable amount of research and took us to a Cemetery that... More

It rained, which made it somewhat more real and brought home the challenges faced. Lea was our guide and she's clearly very well read and knowledgeable about The Somme. Beyond that though she brings a human perspective and insight into many of the monuments and the effect on the people of the Picardy region. We would highly recommend this company... More

A memorable day spent touring the Somme Battlefields with Lea from Terres Memoire battlefield tours. An extremely knowledgeable, articulate, experienced and enthusiastic tour guide, Lea took us on an awe inspiring small group tour around the significant memorial sites (6 Aussies, 2 Brits) and explained in detail the different battles fought along the Western front and the consequences of those....

It was very interesting visiting the battlefields but the Thiepval Memorial is covered in scaffolding. A BIG disappointment as we could not see our uncle's name which was the main reason for the visit. Be warned the scaffolding will remain this year and if you want to see the names of family members on the memorial this IS NOT A... More

We found the management and staff so very helpful especially with our bad French, as they could speak English (Australian), fairly well. The rooms were clean, beds very comfortable and the food delicious. Location was perfect, near train, bus, taxis and the city centre. Come, stay and enjoy, we hope to return again one day!!!

We did the two day tour of the battlefields with this organisation. I am ashamed to admit we were a little disappointed on the first day when we realised our guide was a young girl - we had both expected a crusty, old gent to lead such a tour. However, Leah was just incredible. She had every fact and figure... More

We took the full day tour of the Somme battlefields. Lea, our guide, was absolutely excellent, and provided fantastic insight into all the locations we visited.We would unhesitatingly recommend Terres de Memoire for people who wish to get the most out of their visit to The Somme.

Sylvester was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable of the sites we Australians wanted to visit. He gave a balanced view without the glorification of war. Also visited a German cemetery. Communication was excellent before the booking and pick ups were on time. We took a 2 day tour but I think you could cover enough in one... More
