    4.5 - Excellent

    We went on the Western Front Battlefields weekend tour just a week ago. It was a very interesting and highly moving experience. David our excellent guide carefully built a "brush stroke" picture both through sensitive commentary and the order in which he guided us through this iconic area yet never "over commentated"' allowing us to form our own impressions. The coach was very comfortable. If you are looking for luxury accomodation and /or a "foodie" experience then this is not the tour for you . All perfectly adequate but not what we were there for. Many thanks David for making these few days so memorable.

    5.0 - Excellent

    The tour was perfect for our needs. Informative, concise and well organised. Gide was knowledgable and able to adapt the tour to suit the needs of the group.
