La Somme WW1 battlefield tour

Hubby and I are looking into going on a tour of the WW1 battlefields of La Somme,either catching a train to Amiens and joining a tour from there (or nearby) or else getting picked up from our apartment in Paris (depending on the cost).

We have limited time so we are looking at a day tour only.

Any recommendations please?

Haven't tried it but Salient Tours has a half-day tour of the Somme that looks promising. They're at www.salienttours.com.

Thanks for that. I have googled too but I was hoping to get a tour that someone has been on and can recommend if at all possible.

Are there any Aussies out there who have been? I've heard that La Somme WW1 battlefields are much more relevant to us Australians than say the Normandy WW2 beaches.
