We had a very enjoyable day with Carl. He really explained the context and detail of the battles at the sights we visited. He made it easy for someone without much prior knowledge of this era to appreciate the tour. At the same time anyone with a good knowledge will find Carl has a very detailed command of the facts. Carl also personalised the histories by pointing out individual experiences.

Firstly I would like to thank our tour guide for such an interesting and informative afternoon. We went on the Grand Tour which took in the North Salient. We went to quite a few different cemeteries and the information that we were given for all of them was very in depth. The most moving part of the tour was when we made a stop off at a cemetery that wasn't on the tour so that some members of our group could visit a family members' grave. Tyne Cot Cemetery was so moving and Hill 62 where you can still see the original trenches and loads of artifacts from the war was a definite must see.

Once again thank you all for all your work putting this informative package together. Our history needs to be kept alive and you are doing this.

We went to Ieper for a second visit to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday in March. Normally we avoid guided tours, much preferring to experience historical sites at our own pace. However, I decided that somebody else could drive on the last day of our visit and booked an extended tour with Flanders Battlefield Tours. It was much more than a simple guided tour. From our guide we learned wonderfully moving stories about the soldiers who fought and died at the Ypres Salient. He took us to battlefield sites that we had entirely missed on our previous visit. He brought the Great War home to us in a very personal and, even, in a passionate way. He knew and he very much cared about what he was talking about and sharing with us. We were disappointed when the van came to a stop in the Grote Markt and our adventure was at an end. We will definitely return to Ieper, the battlefields of the Great War and look forward to our next visit with Flanders Battlefield Tours as our personal guide. Thank you.

This is our third trip with Flanders Battlefield Tours and was as always excellent.
Genevra was our guide once again and has such depth of knowledge, passion and humour.
Would highly recommend.

Thank you to our wonderful guide Raoul, who explained everything with sensitivity and got exactly the right balance between explanation and letting us have some time to explore each site. A very memorable, educational and moving experience.
