As a local and experienced guide of the Ypres and Somme Battlefields, I can offer you a personalized tour adapted to your own expectations. In my Mercedes Viano, Audio all surround, you can enjoy the comments and visit the sites where "your soldier" fought almost a century ago.

Annette and Christian are the perfect hosts on an amazing tour. As the group travelled around the Flanders and Somme areas we were shown and learnt so much. We had excellent accommodation and meals. One of the best tours I have ever joined.
