About 2Xplore Flanders Fields
“If you want a superb tour of the WW1 battlefields then you can do no better than be guided by Patrick! Himself a senior military man of considerable contemporary experience, he cleverly sets out an interesting series of events that, at the end of the day, come together to provide a fascinating insight into The Great War! " 2Xplore Tours differs because of its unique concept. Forget about endless lectures and ready explanations on the usual tourist sites. A careful selection is made of “must-see” sites and “off the beaten track” (private) sites, going local!

We booked a half day private tour- Patrick had all the basics covered - on time - personal preparation and COVID-19 ready. He used visual diagrams, photos and above all great story telling to bring the history to focus. He treated the subject - and hence the people involved with dignity. Totally recommend Patrick- 2xplore - if you are looking for a tour.

Patrick is simply amazing, very knowledgeable and friendly. He took time on explaining the history to us. He gave us enough time to roam around and take some pictures of all the places we visited. We came from Canada and Patrick made sure our tour is catered to what we wanted to see. We highly recommend Patrick if you are looking for this type of tour. - Lorna V.

Patrick was amazing and dedicated the tour to my great uncle. We came from Australia and not many tours operate in winter, very lucky to book this tour. Patrick is full of knowledge and made the tour very enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour, this was one of our memorable highlighted moments of our trip to Belgium.

My friend and I booked a tour with Patrick and we weren’t disappointed. He took us to all the main sites and with the help of maps really showed us how the area looked during the war. The tour wasn’t rushed, he took us around in a comfortable MPV and we even stopped at my request at a local bakery because I was hungry! Patrick is knowledgable, laid back, friendly and basically an all round good guy. His tour was the highlight of our weekend away and we’ll definitely be looking him up again as and when we return to the area. Thank you Patrick! 🙏🙏🙏

No hesitation in fully recommending Patrick as a guide and giving him five stars for the incredible quality of service we enjoyed. Patrick's local and historical knowledge was impressive and we enjoyed a fascinating tour of the Ipres campaign where he skilfully brought to life the scale of the carnage that was WW1, its impact upon both the soldiers who fought there and the people who were displaced and later returned to rebuild. Most of all, however, was the wonderful way he looked after our two elderly dads. My father in law had relatives killed in the fighting. Patrick had researched his battalion and was able to take us to the exact location his great uncle had fallen- an intensely moving experience that meant a great deal to him. Not only that, but he'd prepared a pack of information from maps to battlefield reports. Incredible.
