An excellent guided tour in this country interesting sub terrainian environment. The staff were friendly, helpful, welcoming and informative. The guide spoke excellent English and she had a great sense of humour. I get a bit claustrophobic so I had some reservations about going down, but it was well illuminated and quite spacious underground. Overall, this exceeded my expectations

I didn't know. Amazing to walk where so many soldiers walked and waited. Powerful. The quote projected above the exit is powerful.

This was absolutely one of the best things we did our whole time in Paris. This is a must for all Canadians, Australians, New Zealanders, or anyone interested in more WWI history. I had never heard about the Wellington Tunnels before and this tour absolutely blew my mind. I would love to say more, but it would take me more... More

We went to the Wellington tunnels as part of a Battlefields tour. The guided tour was excellent. It was very informative and gave an insight into how the solders were accomodated prior to battle.

This place really brings home the reality of the Great War and the terrible living conditions our Allied Forces had to contend with.

Went here and wasn't sure what to expect. Friendly staff on arrival and we arrived just in time to join the next uk language tour. Knowledgable guide and the audio tour section was very good. The tin hats are a fun touch but annoying after about 5 mins. Very interesting place to spend an hour or two.

We were invited to join a battlefield association trip to Arras and asked if there was anywhere we wanted to visit. I saw this was number one on Trip Advisor places to visit, so suggested to go. Some had been before, many had not. Everyone said it was there favourite memory of our trip. It was just brilliant. You must... More

Enjoyed the tour and the guide. Fascinating history that we never knew about before. It was a little dark, but the walkways were easy to navigate and not treacherous at all, even for the elderly in our party.
