“What a day !”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

When we first found out about the various day trips to the ww1 battlefields in Belgium, it seemed there were three viable options, but after careful consideration we decided to choose this one, and I'm glad we did. This one was the most complete tour with a price comparable or even lower than the other tours who do not feature as many sights.

The guide spoke fluent English and was very approachable that made our tour so pleasant. We saw numerous sights, including the trenches that give you an idea of how the soldiers used to live. The lunch, included in the tour, was exactly what we needed to keep going for the rest of the day. The last post, the daily ceremony to commemorate all those war victims was a perfect ending, and makes you respect the courage of all those brave people. I would definitely recommend this tour !

“Luxury Tour at small all-in price”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

We were able to join this brand new tour featuring all famous sites + the city of Ieper + Last Post at only 69 euros per person! This included a full cold and warm buffet lunch with 2 drinks. Coach was new and spotless. The guide was very comprehensive and gave it a personal touch by telling some anecdotes. We had enough time to see the city of Ieper and ate something light before the Last Post ceremony which was very special. Around 9.30pm we came back to Bruges where we shared a taxi back to the hotel (7 euros to split amongst 7 persons). Tickets available at the hotel.

“The perfect trip”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

A very nice and well organized trip to the battlefields, Flanders Fields Museum. At noon there is a nice buffet lunch. After lunch you go from Ypres to the Canadian Memorial and Tyne Cot. And finally you get to witness the impressive 'Last Post'. Very interesting trip witch include almost everything there is to see regarding WW1.
