My husband and two adult children and I travelled to Ieper to see WWI battlefields & learn more about it. I had read great reviews on Flanders Battlefield Tours & booked the 1/2 day North Salient trip & full day Vimy Ridge tour. Both were above & beyond our expectations!

A few friends expressed an interest in visiting the main WW1 sites so having some personal experience following my own family research I offered to organise a trip, but rather than leaving anything to chance I came across the Flanders Battlefield Tours web site. Following various email traffic two tours where arranged for us, one taking in the Ypres salient... More

Genevra has an unbelievable knowledge of the First World War events around Ieper - my knowledge of what took place here was scant but I learnt and saw so much - 3 hours just flew by! Genevra picked us up in her minibus very promptly and very lucidly explained events from 1914-18 (and beyond). Her passion and interest shone through... More

Thank you! We are heartened very much by your comments which are appreciated, a decision was made by us at the beginning of the Centenary to not change the rates for the afternoon 4hr tours given that it was the Centenary so it is a very cost effective tour with much information being imparted. We love what we do and... More

We recently had our tour of the North Salient with Genevra and her knowledge of the topic was incredibly extensive. Also, with the tour group being relatively small she was very approachable to ask any questions we had and you could tell she had a real passion. Would definitely recommend!

I would urge anyone interested in doing a WW1 battlefield tour to use this excellent tour company. Our guide was so enthusiastic and interesting with his in depth knowledge it brought the whole thing to life. We intend to return to do other tours with them.

What a great experience - we were met by Genevra (English lady) that has been here 20 years - my word she knows her stuff - down-to-earth - incredible knowledge she talks you through each story with absolute detail and gives you a true understanding of the experiences at the time of WW1 in the area.

It's hard to put into words how excellent Jacques and Genevra are at this. Despite me being a seasoned genealogist, Genevra's access to German archives found some PoW details for a relative of mine that I hadn't seen before. Jacques is hugely personable, completely engaging and very knowledgeable - he has had involvement in WW1 in one form or another... More

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review it is very much welcomed.

On a wet and cold February day we were engrossed in a fascinating tour of the Ypres Salient and didn't over-notice the conditions as there was a nice warm minibus to get back into after each stop.
