It totally changed my perception of conditions in the trenches, The distance between opposing trenches was so small its no surprise so many people died. Visiting tyne cot cemetery with its many thousands of war graves left a lump in my throat. So very sad but also very proud of the young men who fell.

Wouter will provide you with a knowledgeable and engaging half day trip into the hell that was Flanders in the Great War. The cost is reasonable and if you need any personal tailoring of sites to visit you'll be accommodated.
As in any guided tour, you'll need to be willing to go back to see what most interests you in greater depth, but as an introduction to key elements of the strategy, people and experiences of the Ypres Salient it is excellent.

Excellent half day, our guide was Joe who was great company and really made the trip very memorable. I would recommend small private tours rather than big ones as you get to learn so much more. Will use againif back in Ypres

A brilliant company who do everything they can to make your tour special. Very informative and done in air conditioned minibuses. Humour and anecdotes are free but the prices are very reasonable for the tour. Can also do private and tailor madde tours.
