This was a great tour, our guide Sylvestrie as knowledgable and passionate about the First World War and it's many battles in the area. As an Australian the visit to the memorials and the school was interesting and moving......as was the knowledge gained from visiting the British, Newfoundland and German sites. Highly recommend this tour.

This was a wonderful day, so interesting & moving. Our guide Sylvestre was fantastic, knowledgable & passionate about his subject. My friend & I shared the tour with another 6 lovely Aussies so it was a nice small group. This one day tour is very easy to do if you are staying in Paris as we were, it is only... More

If you have any family members who were involved in the First World War, or an interest in it, then this tour is a must do experience. Our guide was Sylvestre, a delightful Frenchman with excellent English, an extensive knowledge of the war on the Western front and an impressive and sensitive understanding of Australia, Australians and the reasons why...

We had a wonderful day with Laia and 2 other Aussie families (and an Irishman) on this tour of the Somme battlefields. It really brought the distant events of WW 1 to life as we visited towns whose names we had heard about for decades. Now when we see TV coverage of the events of WW 1 we'll be able... More

We were fortunate to hit upon this tour of the Battlefields. From the offset they responded promptly. Directions for meeting - Amiens Gare, were explicit and timely. Lea catered superbly to the needs of a diverse age and demographic. She is very comfortable chatting in English, using nuisances and with a good sense of humor. We had ample time at... More

Such a professional tour with a personal touch. Silvestre's knowledge and communication skills were excellent. Value for money and would thoroughly recommend it.

I had the pleasure of touring the Western Front Battlefields with Terres de Memoire after a recommendation from a colleague in Australia. Right from the start our tour guide, Sebastian, provided a knowledgeable, informative narration which was delivered with respect and empathy to the thousands of soldiers who lost their lives in the area during WW1. We toured many important... More

My 79 year old father, two sons aged 7 and 9 and I joined a group totalling 8 people. The 9am - 5.30pm tour was well worth the 380euros for the four of us. Staring at Amiens Gare, we were shown the Somme Museum and Albert, Australian, Canadian, New Foundland, tank and Thieval memorials / cemeteries. Toilet and lunch stops... More

Just finished my 2 day battlefield tour and I can't speak highly enough about it. Really well ran, with an excellent and knowledgeable guide in Sylvestre. Would recommend to anybody with an interest in visiting the Commonwealth cemeteries and memorials of WW1. Thanks!

I had been looking forward to this tour for months and it very nearly fulfilled my expectations. It is a very good tour for those with only a general knowledge of the war on the western front. Sylvestre (tour guide) certainly knows his stuff and presents his commentary very well. I would rate the visit to the Commonwealth Memorial and... More
