Private tour from cruise ship

We will be in Hornfleur in late August and being Australians would love to tour our World War 1 battlefields in Fromelles, Villers-Bretonneux etc. Apparently it would take about 1hr 50mins. To drive there. Our ship docks at 9am and sails at 11pm. Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to get a private guide from Hornfleur to take us on a round trip?

This question was posted in April last year. You might have more luck by PM ing the poster. Are you after a dday tour or wwi. They are different directions.

For wwi try

for d- day there's a list of guides on a top question in the Normandy section. Not all go to cruise ships.

We ended up doing our trip to the Somme Battlefields through battlefieldtourspecialists.com.au. We were picked up from our ship at 9.30am by our guide, an englishman who lives in Amiens. He was an excellent guide and very good company. It was a long day, not getting back to ship until 7pm but well worth the effort. It was certainly a highlight of our trip.
