Our tour with Olivier has been the highlight of our trip to the battlefields of the Western Front. From our first contact with Olivier he was very helpful with giving us all the information we required for our trip. Olivier's extensive knowledge of the area and his passion for the history of WWI make the tour a truly remarkable experience.... More

We took a Somme day tour with Olivier in September, 2014. From the first moment of greeting we knew this would be a great day! Olivier's knowledge and passion is reflected in his every word. Each question was answered with detail and insight and punctuated with photos of 'then and now', as well as trench maps which mapped our GPS... More

We booked a tour with Olivier at the last minute and were so glad that we did. The tour that we did was a fairly standard one, I suspect, as we booked so late. But Olivier brought the place alive so that you really got a good feel for how it must have been like during WW1. His passion and... More

Olivier took us for a one day tour of the Somme battlefields. He collected us from our hotel in the morning returning us in the evening. He has an excellent knowledge of everything to do with WW1 and the battlefields which made the tour very interesting. He obviously is very interested in the subject and there was not a single...

You will not be disappointed if you book this tour. I booked a 2 day tour of Somme and Flanders. I have a personal connection to WW1 and Olivier did his own research to find the locations applicable to my great uncle. He is extremely knowledgable and was able to explain the documents I already had plus give great detail... More

Olivier is an exceptional guide and many Tripadvisor reviews clearly outline his professionalism, his friendly and courteous nature and his extensive knowledge of the WW1 battlefields. He takes a very real interest in assisting visitors who are researching deceased relatives. We wanted to visit the grave of an Australian great-uncle in the Guards' Cemetery at Les Boeufs and Olivier was... More

We went to France specifically to see the Somme battlefields, and we are so thankful that we booked a tour with Oliver. Oliver picked us up from our B&B right on time, and we started learning from the moment we got in the van. There was no wasted time, as he told us so much about the battles and pointed... More

We would highly recommend Oliver's tours to anyone interested in the Somme battles but particularly from an Australian viewpoint. From our initial enquiry he was very helpful with the travel arrangements to get to St Quentin. His English is excellent and his knowledge of the area and all the history particularly for Australian units was encyclopedic. We had a terrific... More

We were recommended to Olivier by previous visitors and like them, found him to be a delightful and most informative guide. It was a memorable day for us and we highly recommend his tour to anyone contemplating a visit to the region. His knowledge of WW1 and the surrounding districts was outstanding and we wish we had more time available... More

The Somme Tour with Olivier was one of the highlights of our recent trip to France. Olivier's deep knowledge was consistently demonstrated throughout our day with him. We did the Somme tour which included a visit to the Vimy Ridge memorial which I found very moving. My son and I especially enjoyed the visit to the Beaumont Hamel Newfoundland memorial... More
