An excellent tour by an excellent tour guide, Nathan. His knowledge and passion for the subject is second to none.

If you are interested or not in WWI this tour gives you an insight into the human sacrifices endured within the 1914 to 1918 conflict. It also shows you marks still left on the landscape and the facts behind them.

Highly recommended day out.

We were so glad we booked with Nathan and Flanders Fields Battlefield Day Tours. This man is so knowledgable and worked very hard to answer all of our questions. There were a number of countries represented in our tour and he made sure all of the countries' stories were covered. He was very punctual and accommodating. He took us to places that the big tour buses would have difficulty to go. The provided lunch was very good. A first class tour!

Three people failed to turn up for Nathan's guided tour. Sadly they will never know what an interesting, informative and emotional experience they missed out on.
Nathan's knowledge of European and world history was outstanding and really set the scene for the calamitous events that occured between 1914-1918. The field visits and museums viewed, combined with Nathan's commentary enabled Glenys and myself to gain a full understanding of the strategies employed by both sides during this horrific conflict.
Thanks Nathan for an amazing tour.
Paul and Glenys.

We decided to spend one of our days in Bruges touring WWI sights, as our child had just finished studying about World War I and was enamored with early-20th-century history. Nathan took us to a number of remarkably moving sights, both on and off the beaten path (he grew up in the area and seems to know it from his years playing in the countryside as a child), and described the areas we passed through in such detail that I wouldn't be surprised to learn that he's read every book on WWI in English, French, and Flemish. The only downside of the tour is that there isn't quite enough time to fully absorb the two extraordinarily good museums that the tour visits (Paschendale and Ypres), but Nathan sets expectations appropriately beforehand. We would love to go back.

Nathan the guide really knows his stuff. He started with a potted history of Europe in the 19th century & continued to give appropriate & interesting information throughout the day. He tailored the trip to the people on it so we visited Canadian & US memorials as well as the big sites & some smaller ones such as shell holes (more interesting than it sounds). When I told him (with no prior notice) that my grandfather had fought at Passchendaele & with which regiment he was able to take us to the farm where they were stationed: we were impressed.
The arrangements were fine; Nathan turned up on time. the bus was comfortable and lunch was good.
All in all a good day.
