We had a fascinating time on this tour, though philippe our guide exhausted us with his knowledge.
Me and my wife were in the area for my birthday and she saw these tours just two days before we were due to go. I had a vague memory of being told aout my great-grandfather's grave and thanks to the commonwealth war graves commission website was able to track it down quickly.
I emailed Phillipe with a request to visit the grave just the day before we went to Bruges and he was very helpful and encouraging. We learned more about this important time than either of us had in school, or our own lifetimes.
Hearing about both the micro and macro scale details is so fascinating, the incredible scale and the personal suffering were indelibly brought to life. Gaining an understanding of the Belgian perspective, both at the time of the great war and since, was particularly enlightening.
The tour showed Phillipe's years of experience as a guide. It was very well constructed and thought out and the landscape and geography of the area was brought to life as much as possible.
I was also personally very happy with how our visit to my great-grandfather's grave was handled, and I would encourage anyone with ancestors who fought in the great war to take the opportunity to visit if they are anywhere near the area.
Quasimodo tours was the perfect guide.
