We did a tour on a recent trip to Paris. Booked online which was an easy, problem free experience. Instructions for meeting the guide were clear and easy to follow. The guide, Lea is knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. We loved every moment of the tour and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Highly recommended!

I cannot say enough good things about this company and its Somme Battlefields tour. I had a school group (17-18 years old) and we had a one day tour. Our tour guide was excellent and even did extra research on WW1 stories to suit the nationalities of our varied group members. Highly recommended!

We had.a very educational two day tour with Lea around the Somme and Flanders. Lea's love of her job, her knowledge and her passion enabled us to appreciate many aspects of the war activities in the areas we visited. Her intimate knowledge of the areas gave us a deeper appreciation of the soldiers who fought here. What was especially touching... More

We had an amazing two day tour with the friendly and knowledgeable Sylvester. Nothing was too much trouble, even provided paperwork on my ancestor and took the tour to the farm where he was killed and at the end of the tour arranged for us to be dropped at Lille train station for the Eurostar to London :-) Recommend highly...

My husband and I visited the Somme area 20 years ago and were keen to take our teenaged sons to make history live for them. We caught the train from Paris for a day trip (even an hour breakdown did not ruin the day). Sylvestre was also our guide and was wonderful. Having a knowledgeable guide (and a driver for... More

We booked with Terres de Memoire from Australia on the strength of 2 recommendations - one from TripAdvisor reviews and the other from a military historian connected with the RSL back home. Our guide was Lea and she kept us engaged and informed despite atrocious weather. She certainly knows her stuff and has perfect english. We were also very pleased... More

Wow! We did a private 1 day tour with Sylvestre as a group of 2 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 14. Sylvestre was so knowledgable and so engaging with both the adults and kids that everyone learnt a lot during the day. We visited many memorials , graves, a museum, a bunker and the trenches. The highlight for... More

Yesterday we experienced a wonderful day tour of parts of the Somme with Sylvester as our driver and very informative guide. We took our 10 year old grandson with us as a special birthday present and we all three learned so much. It was a very informative day with many reflective moments. Sylvester knows his history very well and shared... More
