This was a great day out and worth every penny. Olivier met us punctually and was fully prepared for our day out. We wanted to see the memorial at Thiepval where my Great Uncle Jack has his name inscribed and see Vimy Ridge - but we got so much more. We were able to follow Jack's last day with maps... More

When booking this tour, everything was easy. Olivier even advised what train to catch from Gar du Nor station to St Quentin. The train trip took just over an hour. He was there to meet us on arrival and showed us to his impeccably clean minibus. I thought I knew a lot about the Anzacs on the Western Front, however... More

Olivier's one day Somme tour of Australian sectors was wonderfully presented. The trench maps and photographs contextualised the intensity and strategy of the Australian involvement in the 3 years of trench warfare in the area.

Informative day with Olivier who was a fantastic guide. Loved the interactive GPS maps that showed the trenches from WWI and also the photos dating back to that time. Quaint little cafe for lunch. Would recommend to anyone as Olivier was very adaptable for his audience.

Having started the tour with little knowledge of the Great War, it's progression and the involvement of all the different countries, I ended the tour with a more comprehensive understanding. We booked the tour after deciding on a last minute holiday in which to incorporate something my husband had always wanted to do. Visit and understand more about the Great... More
