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

Visiting the Somme Memorial we were filled with so many mixed emotions ranging from the tragedy of wars to feelings of deep national pride. The tombstones provide a very moving way to pause and reflect on our brave men. The rural setting is very beautiful and peaceful. It was a privilege to visit this place!

I spent the day doing the Somme tour with Léa last Thursday. I caught the train from Paris to Amiens and met the tour opposite the train station. Léa had gone to the trouble of researching my great uncle who was killed near Flers in November 1916 and gave me a copy of the information she'd found. We also went... More

We were met by Sebastian as arranged by the various emails in advance at 9am by the station. We were joined by 4 others and had a small people and jumped into the people transporter for our day ahead. Sebastian had also taken the time to research my relative who had died on the Somme and provided some interesting facts... More

We were picked up at Amiens Station for our one day tour in September, 2016. Right from the email exchange prior to our visit and then to the visit itself, It was very apparent that this company is very professional. One objective we had was to visit my wife's relative who was buried at Heath Cemetery. Not only did Terres... More

Found Terres de Memoire through recommendations on the Net and they did not disappoint. From my first contact they were polite and quick to reply. I explained that we both had our grandmothers brothers buried in two cemeteries in the area of our visit and asked if we could visit those graves and they were happy to do it. When... More

The peace and respect afforded to the dead of these terrible battles is really uplifting and not nearly as depressing as I had thought it would be. Really beautiful.
