After getting a list of available tours of the Somme battlefield (while still in the States) I contacted several & chose Terres de Memoire because of their prompt & detailed e-mail responses to my questions as well as their description of a big picture overall view of the battle area. At 9:00 AM I was picked up at the Amiens... More

Recently four Australian friends were fortunate to join a two day tour of the Somme and Belgian Battlefields with Terres de Memoire. Sylvestre was our guide and we could not have had a more knowledgeable and committed guide. Sylvestre tailored the tour to the Australian involvement in WWI and had provided information about relatives of two of our group who... More

We went on a 2 day tour with the most marvellous Lea, along with 2 other Australian Couples. Good coverage of the Somme Battlefields from 1916 with interesting and informative stops at Villers-Bretonnex and Peronne Museums plus trenchlines and memorials. Good stops and personalised where required, the Terres team researched the service records and took us to the cemetary to... More

We went on a one day Terres de Memoire Somme Battlefield Tour which we booked online from Australia. I made several email enquiries and each time Estelle answered quickly. Our guide was Sylvestre and most of our group were Australians. It was quickly evident that Sylvestre was deeply passionate about WW1 history and was very keen to pass on his... More

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.
