I can't speak highly enough of this experience. The tour group comprised approximately 20 people, all Australians, who had travelled to France especially to attend Anzac Day services on the Western Front in April 2019. We travelled in a very comfortable coach for the entire tour. We are a family of 4 and really enjoyed visiting all the important battlefields that are special to Australians, including Pozieres, Bullecourt, and Fromelle over 2 and 1/2 days with the climax being attendance at the Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux. The tour also included a visit to the John Monash Centre and the Victoria School, which was absolutely fantastic, and we also stopped in Arras and Albert on two of the touring days for lunch. Estelle was most helpful with the booking arrangements prior to our arrival. She answered my many questions promptly and left me feeling confident that this was a very experienced crew. Nothing was any trouble for Estelle and she also undertook research for us about our family members, who had fought in the area during WW1. She even provided us with a photograph of our relative who was killed in action, which we had never seen before. We were very touched by this. Lea was our guide and wow, she really has an amazingly in depth knowledge of the history of the area and all aspects of how the battles unfolded. She is a born historian and exudes such passion that made the stories she told about the war all the more compelling. Lea was also able to point out to us the exact location of our relative's death at Pozieres, which was important to us as he has no known grave. The information about the exact location exceeded our expectations and was a highlight for us as we would not have thought this level of detail possible. Lea is also a really lovely lady, who was a pleasure to travel with over the 2 and 1/2 days of our tour, as was Estelle who was a pleasure to deal with also. It was sad to say good-bye when the tour was over. We are sorry to see that the tour is cancelled for 2020 due to Covid19 as it is a really wonderful experience. I commend this tour to all Australians who may be looking to spend a few days exploring and being educated about the Somme battlefields in 2021, particularly as the tour concludes with the not to be missed Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux. Yes, it was very cold and a bit wet, but I would do it all again. Thank you Terres de Memoir, especially Lea and Estelle. I love your work!

Her presentation was superb and the tour, was not only tailored to our historical interests but also based on the questions we asked..we would highly recommend Lea and this Tour Company, if you are looking for an excellent and educational experience..Brendan and Alan..

My Aussie family and I thoroughly enjoyed our 1 day tour of the Somme we undertook late in Nov '19. Lea was an excellent guide who not only had very good knowledge of the events that occurred but was also very fluent in English. Our entire family learnt a lot that day and my wife even shared some of her grandfathers stories. I definitely recommend this tour.
