“Hill 60”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This is a fantastic sight and such an important of the war efforts. Wander among the pill boxes and fortifications and let your mind wonder to the amount of explosives that shaped this landscape. Dont miss it

“Stunning crater”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Hill 60 and the Caterpillar are a must visit site. The Caterpillar, whilst not as large as Lochnagar, is a sight to behold and slightly unnerving for being so tranquil today. Ensure to understand what happened there, before visiting; it will make the visit all the more poignant.

“Incredible place: I'm glad we went with a guide”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Hill 60 and other nearby sites in the fields of Flanders are incredible. I strongly recommend that everyone visit them (unless you are physically unable to walk on uneven terrain).

We took a guided tour with Roger at Salient Tours. I strongly recommend that you find a good guide, as we would not have understood this site but for Roger's explanations, photos, stories, etc.

I've written a separate review for Salient Tours, but I wanted to leave this review here. Whether with Salient Tours or another good tour company, find someone who can paint the full picture of what happened here. The sites themselves are too large, complex, changed over time, etc., and thus to difficult to understand without a good guide.

“Hill Tour”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This place seems to have been abandoned. The café was closed and people were left to wander around with very little information. However it is easy to see the horror of the war here with shell craters everywhere. could have done with a little area with a guide brochure as some of it is on private land. I preferred Hill 62 where the display is great and you can clearly imagine the difficulty with which the Soldiers had to cope

“One powerful site to visit”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

This place has the original impact craters all around it and clearly gives an impression of how horrid an experience it must have been for all sides. I'm very pleased to have seen it.
