“So good we intend to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2009

Genevra makes WW1 come to life in a very knowledgable and moving tour. She is self taught and passionate about how soldiers and nurses are remembered and continues to keep their memories alive. The trip for us was especially poignant and Genevra took extra time to take us to a family members memorial for which we are extremely grateful.

“Fabulous Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2009

We enjoyed a fabulous tour with Jacques; so knowledgeable and very engaging. From the admin expertly handled by Genevra, through to the end of our tour, everything was perfect. We learnt so much from Jacques (how does he remember all those dates?!), and unscheduled stops, like the visit to Harry Patch's memorial were very special. Highly recommended, a hard act to follow.

“excellent tour, nothing is too much trouble for them”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2009

We travelled with Jacques on a Salient Tour. His knowledge is outstanding; his explanations clear. His wife kindly found out about my great, great uncles' graves and it was very moving laying crosses at their graves, with Jacques speaking the exhortation.
We recommend this company without hesitation.

“From the welcome to the Good bye we were informed, educated and involved in the tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2009

We did the morning 21/2 hour tour of the Ypres battlefield. Jacques our guide was not only knowledgeable and informative, but his friendly and open manner enhanced the tour experience.
I am a bit of battlefield 'tourist' but I truly believe that if you have never experienced anything like this before you would get so much from this tour. Jacques' ability to relate facts and anecdotes retained the interest of everyone on the tour. In short it was a marvellous tour and like many good things I left wanting more!

“Numerous visits still the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2009

We are regular visitors to Ypres and always arrange a tour with Jacques and Genevra. We have taken friends and have never had a negative comment from them. Every trip we make we learn something new, and are always amazed at the passion and enthusiasm shown by Jacques and Gen and realise it is not just a job but a way of life for them. We have also recommended them to friends who visit Flanders, and everytime get a call after thanking us for the tip.
If you want to have a tour that will move and inform you, use Flanders Battlefield Tours, you will not regret it
