Sylvestre has a passionate interest in the battles that took place on the Somme and does the research to find your relatives graves and details of their service. Within our group there were families doing this. I went because I have read fictional texts about the war and knew something of Villers-Bretonneux and the Victoria school rebuilt with funds raised...

Very impressed with our bespoke tour with Lea. We visited sites that were relevent to us as well as other important sites in the battle of the Somme. Lea had the sensitivity and respect for the subject and gave us a very good overview. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to visit the area.

If you are interested in such types of places and history you can try to visit this one. It is really far away from the center of the city and probably you will need a car.

I can't speak highly enough of this tour group. From the very start they were accomodating and helpful. Valentine our guide was an absolute fountain of knowledge, he did not falter with his facts and stories for our 8 hour tour of the Somme. His friendly personality had us at ease immediately and although there was just the 2 of... More

The Somme was such a lesson for us in the history of WWI and the role of the UK and Commonwealth. The landscape can be peaceful, rolling hills with grand belvedere views. The area is also set up for hiking, biking and in some cases camping. Yet you are also able to visit the various memorials established by England, Australia,... More

My husband & I spent a memorable day yesterday with Lea. We had her to ourselves, and she went out of her way to customize our experience to reflect my ties to the US, Newfoundland, and Australia. She was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, and thoroughly impressed my amateur historian husband with her knowledge. She went above and beyond to... More

Our tour guide was Lea and we couldn't have asked for anything more from her as a guide. She was friendly, knowledgable and very easy to get on with. The one day Western Front tour was perfect. Good for Aussies with Villiers Breteneux and Pozieres but also many other places. Thiepval is particularly moving. I highly recommend this tour.

During October my wife & another couple had the great pleasure to tour the Somme with Terres de Memoire Battlefield Tours, the knowledge of our guide Sylvestre was first class & his ability to share this knowledge & insights was truly appreciated by us all. Even the organisation of the tour was well done with enquiries & emails answered quickly... More

I have just returned with five friends from Arras and during our stay we had the days tour of the Somme. Our guide was Lea. Her knowledge was extensive and we did not feel we were at any time being rushed from place to place. I had supplied my granddads army details and she took us to the area where... More

We spent two days with lea, our guide, and the whole experience was really good. Very flexible, knowledgable, found out things specifically for our interests, and provided a good balance of sites of interest. Not cheap, but excellent value - and that's what matters to us really. It was good to stop for lunch too - we didn't have to... More
