My wife's great uncle had not returned from WW1' and much of the history surrounding him was scant. After some research we arranged a battlefields tour with Olivier of Chemins d,Histoire Battlefields Tours. We completed this two day tour today, and cannot recommend this company highly enough. Olivier our guide had not only tracked down the site our great uncle... More

Our family (me, husband, and two boys 13 & 10) took a day tour with Olivier of the Canadian WWI sites at Vimy Ridge and the Somme. Olivier is a very personable guide with a great deal of knowledge about WWI. We learned a lot and the tablet that he used to show us the maps of the trenches was... More

I did a tour with olivier and was amazed at his knowledge. He is a very passionate and knowledgeable tour guide with an understanding of all nations involved. He was flexible with his tour so that people in the group could visit relatives graves. I would definitely recommend using this tour.

I picked the one day tour of the Somme. Olivier picked me up following a late train from Paris on a great solo tour of the Somme, he has excellent local knowledge and has a passion for history. I really liked the fact he covered a combination of British, Australian and Canadian memorials. We covered all the main sites, in... More

We made a great decision to use the excellent services of Olivier for our day visiting the area in June. My Great Uncle was killed in the closing stages of WW1 and I had passed all the information I had found on this to Olivier. Prior to our visit Olivier carried out his own research to ensure we got the... More

We booked Oliver's tour due to his knowledge and we were not disappointed. There was 6 of us and we were there for the Pozieres centenary so thought it would be great to familiarise ourselves with the area etc. It was suppose to be from 10 am till 4 pm but he picked us up from our Gite at 9.30...

Our family recently were most fortunate to spend a day on tour with Olivier, who drove us in his lovely new Mercedes vehicle through the Somme battlefields area. Olivier is meticulous in his explanations and detail, is extremely well-organised, conveys interesting informative facts about the war and tailored the tour to our family excellently, including to our 12 and 9yo...

Olivier was fantastic, he took each of us (6 guests) to the place of most interest to each person; For me it was a great uncle Alf's grave in the Cemetery extension at Millencourt. Olivier knew which battle (Dernancourt 3rd April 1918) and in which field Alf had been killed. My great uncle had been buried in a mass grave... More

We would highly recommend Olivier, there was no aspect of his tour we could fault. He was punctual, comprehensive in his description of the conflicts and obliging in his inclusion of our specific requests for information pertaining to our relatives' involvement in the particular battles of Bullecourt and Pozieres. This is an area where Olivier's tour was a highlight of... More
