Loved this tour. Our tour guide was excellent, went out of his way to assist people with us to find their Great Uncles grave and was very informative. Would highly recommend.

Absolutely excellent. If you are interested in WW1 battles, it would be hard not to like this. The many cemeteries make for a moving experience. I REALLY enjoyed this, Saw a lot, including the place where the Red Baron crashed to his death. Guide knew his stuff. Tipped him more than any guide I had before. Unlike American graves, the British Commonwealth allowed relatives to provide epitaphs to be written by relatives. Check out this one,. Could speak for everyone killed in that war, although this particular soldier died on the day that the German general Ludendorff described as the Black Day for the German army, so in that respect he didn't die, as so many did in that war, in vain.

The small group thing is a good way to do it. However, 15 mins at the Somme memorial was a bit rude. And if you are sitting in the middle you see nothing. So it was a very expensive exercise and I wouldn't overly recommend it.

Sorry I thought I had rated this trip. This was our holiday last year it was a wonderful day - I would strongly recommend if you only have a day to spend this trip covers a lot. It was amazing.

For some reason the other 4 people did not show up so we had a private tour. The tour guide was great!

The day was very interesting and the guide very knowledgeable. The day was tailored to the needs of the people attending with enough time spent at the memorial sites. It was a little cramped taking 8 in the mini van but definitely worth it.
