We booked the half day tour with Battlefield Explorer. We had a fantastic tour and Wouter, our guide, was like a fountain of knowledge. There was literally not a question he could not answer. He made the complexities of WWI understandable and brought this trenches...More

Collected on time from our Apartment by Wouter, Sunday morning 0900, for a half-day tour around the Ypres salient. What a well-educated, knowledgeable and informative guide this man is. Learnt and saw far more than if we'd tried to do this under our own steam....More

We had a fantastic tour with Wouter. I would highly recommend spending 1/2 day or a whole day to learn about this historic part of Belgium. If you are traveling to Belgium, you must visit Ieper and you must do a tour with Wouter. We...More
