Our guide, Lucas, packed so much into this small tour (just 8 of us). With his family being from Paschendale, he spoke from the heart and he provided a great deal of interesting information in a very engaging way during this visit to the significant sites. Many thanks.

Booked this tour at the last minute at the bookshop in Ypres. With only 7 on the tour it was more personal and easier to ask questions. Lucas, the tour guide, was excellent and obviously knew his stuff. (Thanks Lucas). This morning tour lasted 4 hours and covered an awful lot in those hours including a visit to a local... More

We booked our tour consisting of 6 people. Lucas was our tour guide and we could not compliment him enough. He was extremely knowledgeable and very animated. I would definitely recommend this to everyone!

this tour is worth your time and expense. We had Roger as our guide. He shares so much information and really brings WWI into your mind. So difficult to imagine the horrors that went on here. The tour lasts four hours from 10:00 to 14:00. By far the majority of the time is spent outside. Dress comfortably including shoes.

Roger was our guide. His knowledge and perspective of the area gave a very good understanding of the conditions and what the men faced over so many years. Very informative but more importantly a sense of empathy for the fate of those soldiers and what they faced - the mud, cold, wet and the gassing. Highly recommended

Our guide Lucas was very knowledgable and animated and brought the tour to life. His local knowledge about the area, the events of the Great War and it's ongoing and lasting legacy for his country and countrymen was a real eye opener. Couldn't recommend this tour and its guide enough.

My sons and I travelled to Ypres, (Ieper) Belgium specifically to visit the battlefield where my Grandfather was killed in April 1915. We went on the Salient Tour with Steve and he took us to the exact location of the battle. He described in detail the location of various troop units, weather conditions and other fascinating detailed information about that... More
