I had an unreal experience with Kurt. Due to circumstances it ended up being a solo tour. From this point on, Kurt ensures that my tour was exactly as I wanted it to be. He worked hard to make sure I saw every site, memorial...More
Warm regards and many thanks, Dylan. It was also my pleasure to guide you on this - indeed a bit unexpected 'private' tour. But having more fun on a bit more sporting bikes, this trip satisfied both of us, I guess!
It's just over a year since my family and I took a day trip with Kurt around Ypres. Kurt is a very knowledgeable guide and my kids (12 and 9 at the time) also enjoyed this immensely. I can only imagine it's even better with...More
How gentle David, to think back to our common tour a year later. I have been a bit too busy, apparently, just checking out now my latest reviews. It still warms my heart to read about you and I hope your family is very well...More
I would thoroughly recommend this tour as Kurt is very knowledeable and delivers his knowledge with huge enthusiasm. So much better than wondering around on your own with a guide book. We cycled for 2 days and Kurt showed us so much - battlefied sites,...More

Kurt put together an excellent 5 day tour for us involving a good amount of cycling with lots of stops for sightseeing. He was very knowledgeable about both WW1 and WW2. His local knowledge allowed us to cycle on quiet roads/tracks so we could chat...More
Thanks a lot, Paul! I also enjoyed your company! Five days together, and we got along so well that it felt a bit sad to say goodbye, remember our 'ciao' in Lille ;)) Hope to see you again (perhaps us one day in Scotland!)
This biking tour gives you a flexible way to experience "Flanders Field" where you can fit in your own interest and preferences. The Tour guide has the communication skills to tell clients about what happened in Flanders Field not only during WW I
Dank je wel Roland! Many thanks Roland! You were a great guy to guide on this tailormade trip. Also thanks for the mails!
My wife and I visited the Ypres area of Flanders and used it as a base to visit areas of the Western Front and areas with a historical significance for Commonwealth Countries during WW1. We hired the Bikingbox cycles from the Newsagency just a short...More
