As a local and experienced guide of the Ypres and Somme Battlefields, I can offer you a personalized tour adapted to your own expectations. In my Mercedes Viano, Audio all surround, you can enjoy the comments and visit the sites where "your soldier" fought almost a century ago.

We had a great couple of days touring around the relevant Australian battle sites of the western front. The final day was a personalised trip based on my great grandfather's last day. You'd be lucky to find two better guides than Christian and Annette.Outstanding tour!
