Firstly, thank you to all the people who reviewed this tour company, reading all the impressive reviews was the reason for choosing Terres de Memoire.
We had Sylvestre as our guide and he was brilliant, he had a wealth of knowledge and was humorous. He made you feel like you were driving around with an old friend you hadn't seen for sometime, very easygoing. We did the one day tour. Caught the train from Paris and met Sylvestre opposite Amiens train station at 9am. We were on the tour with two other people, (both from Australia).
We visited the Villers-Bretonneux Australian War Memorial and school, Thiepval Memorial, Pozieres Australian War Memorial, Proyart German Cemetery, Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial and Lochnagar Crater Memorial, this is a snapshot of what the one day tour covered. At no time did you ever feel rushed at each stop. We had lunch in Albert at Hygge Cafe.
During the drive you pass numerous memorial sites dotted over the countryside which is very sobering.
The tour is heart wrenching when confronted with the thousands of crosses and the endless columns of names listed as missing at various sites. Take you tissues they will be needed at times.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR
