Very Moving.

I would highly recommend this tour not only because the guide was so knowledgeable but because it should be compulsory for all.

Nathan, our guide was fantastic. So knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He made the names and places come alive. He explained the background to the causes of WW1 and the progression of the battles as we drove through the countryside. The last post was very poignant, but you do need to be there early. (Lunch was also very good)

We did the Flanders Fields tour today and we were very pleased with it. Nathan, our tour guide was superb. He had a very comfortable 9 seater Mercedes Benz and he provided an outstanding experience for us all, with detailed commentary of all of the significant developments in history that led to the war from as soon as he had...

Our guide was Nathan and there were 6 of us on the full day tour. Nathan has encyclopaedic knowledge about Flanders and explains the history that led up to the war as well as the events of the war itself. It's sad and evocative to see the cemeteries and to hear about the lives lost. It's amazing to see how... More

This is fantastic tour. We chose the full day tour. I'm glad we did because Nathan is a font of knowledge. The fact that you share the tour with 7 other means it's more personal and you don't have to wait for 40-50 other people to get on and off the bus. We went to a lot of the significant... More

From the time Nathan arrived at "The Pand" hotel to collect us I knew we were going to enjoy our trip to the Battlefields. We sat up front in his mini bus and were in awe of how much knowledge Nathan had of WW1. Definitely not a tour to be missed especially Nathan 's tour. ...we were transported back in... More

We went on the full day tour on 4th August which started with Nathan picking us up directly from our hotel. The best things about this tour are the guide - Nathan - who was so knowledgeable and engaging, and the fact that it has an 8 person limit unlike many of the other tour options. The day itself flew... More

This was a brilliant tour led by a very capable and knowledgeable guide Nathan who not only gave very detailed information about the build up to WWI but also a Belgian perspective, in fact his knowledge of the war seemed unsurpassed. Transportation from our Bed and Breakfast was included as well as visits to American, British, Canadian and German cemeteries... More

As noted in most all of the reviews, this is a day trip well worth taking. Nathan was superb as a guide, very knowledgeable on the history and could see he adapted the cemetery visits to ensure each participates country was included. Super nice lunch as well. I came home feeling I really learned alot. Those men and women should... More

In June, Nathan took a small group of us on a remarkable backroads tour of battlefields, memorials, cemeteries and tiny villages. He did not follow a set routing but responded to the particular interests of his guests. Nathan started telling us about World War 1 as soon as we started driving away from Bruges and didn't stop linking what we... More
