This was an excellent tour! The guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. There weren't many of us so he chose the places specifically based on our countries. Me and my Dad had wanted to see this our whole lives and this tour was exactly what we needed to have the experience we wanted!

I recently went on a trip to Ypres to learn more about WW1 and visit Menin Gate, the battlefields and cemeteries. By going on this tour with Lionel this ticked every box and gave me a great understanding afterwards. Lionel was a fantastic guide, he was engaging, enthusiastic and very knowledgable. He was open to any questions and happy to... More

Frontline Tours was efforttless to book and easy to arrange once in Ypres. Lionel was engaging and captivating with his extensive knowledge of the history of every street, building, and monument that surrounds Ypres. He let us decide which areas to focus the tour on, and our only regret is that we only booked ourselves for two hours! Lionel's passion... More

Just returned from a wonderful day spent in the company of Lionel. He is truly engaging and made our trip to the WW1 battlefields both moving and informative. Nothing was too much trouble and the deep knowledge that he has developed over many years with the nice personal insights into those involved in the war are captivating. Would wholeheartedly recommend... More

Lionel has not only an encyclopaedic knowledge of the First & Second World Wars but also the poilitical & social background. The tour around Ypres last week was very informative, interactive and spontaneous such as when he spotted the Bomb Disposal Unit's van! We visited cemeteries both German & British and Lionel even showed us where the late Harry Patch... More

We did 2 x 2 hour tours with Lionel over 2 days. Wish we had had more time. Great tours tailored to the kids (aged 8,9 &10). Lionel kept them engaged and interested. Highly recommended.

What a memorable afternoon with Lionel. His knowledge and portrayal of the events that took place in this area during the first world war brought history to life. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the area.

The four hour tour passed too quickly. Lionel Roosemont sets the scene and then delivers an excellent tour customised to the customer's requirement. He is the local expert with a world view and an appreciation of the history of the period as well as detailed information on the sites and what happened at them. Not to be missed.

Lionel was fantastic from the moment of the first email. He tailored our private tour to include the highlights relating to Australian forces and was highly organised. I loved how he could send your imagination back in time with humanising stories, photographs and incredible site visits. I am not a military history buff (I organised this tour for my husband)...

This was an excellent tour. My wife's grandfather fought in the area as part of the New Zealand contingent. Lionel customised the tour specifically for us and gave us a real feeling of where he most likely was and the challenges he and thousands of others faced. Lionel is extremely knowledgeable and passionate.
