“Personalized Service and a Must-See Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2009

Nathan was an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide. We saw and learned so very much this day. All along he made sure we were enjoying our day while seeing things we had only read about. He know about little out-of-the-way places and historical sites that I know are not on other tours. This is the BEST!

“Totally fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2009

This tour was the highlight of our weekend in Bruges. We saw a huge range of sights (not just cemeteries and monuments) and learnt a lot about WW1. Definitely recommend this tour - money well spent.

“What a tour should really be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2009

One of the best tours I have ever taken, anywhere. Nathan only takes very small groups, so you get to see a lot and have a lot of interaction with someone who is clearly a local expert on a vast and complex area. He threads his way through the various sectors of the West Flanders battlefields with skill and sensitivity. From visits (at your own pace) to major museums, to stopping at the side of the road to examine (just) excavated shells, Nathan gives a real window into the experiences of the soldiers of WWI. Real history, explained and illustrated by a real expert. If you are interested in WWI, this is a fantastic tour.

“Must take this tour on your visit to Bruges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2009

Nathan is a walking history book on WW1 in the Flanders battlefields. What makes this tour work is his passion and personal knowledge of the area. He was able to relate through stories and bring you back to those horrific times. Because we were American, Canadian and British on the tour he chose memorials for each country so that everyone felt connected to the tour. I highly recommend it.

“a hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2009

this was a wonderful tour. We were picked up right at our hotel and joined a small group (he takes a max of 8 people) and we had a great tour around flanders. We stopped at over a dozen different sites, visited two museums, and even had a nice restaurant lunch included in the tour.
This was much more personal than going on one of those large bus tours. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to visit Flanders
