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. With easy style and... More

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

My Girlfriend and I had the pleasure of doing the Grand Tour with Jack His knowledge of the area and all things history was incredible -- he had an immediate and thought provoking answer to every question we had. It was great to have a tour from someone who is local and has personally worked with so many veterans and... More

I did a lot of walking in Flanders, but also took a licences tour. We had an excellent guide even though it was freezing, pouring rain and she wasn't 100% she gave us a fantastic tour. We all introduced each other and off we went around the area stopping at various points of interest. It was easy to get in... More

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. The stops were just right and Genavre gave succinct and interesting commentaries both in the bus and out on the ground, whichever was... More

Having never visited Ypres before, we wanted to make the most of our short visit there. How fortunate we were to have read amongst others the Flanders Battlefield Tours leaflet in the Information Office - the tour description seemed to tick all the boxes. WE WERE. NOT DISAPPOINTED!...... It was easy to book and Genevra followed up quickly with an... More

Awesome is a much over used word but this tour was just that. There are over 700 excellent reviews for Flanders Battlefield Tours which must be some kind of record for Tripadvisor - the reviews are thoroughly deserved and it is doubtful that we will add anything new to what fellow reviewers have said. Jacques, our guide, was fantastic. His... More

What an absolutely amazing way to spend an afternoon. I can't explain enough how good this tour was, from the planning and communication, and my silly questions of what to wear and pack, they were truly professional. Genevra's communication was excellent, I booked this for my husbands surprise birthday present and booked in advance and they couldn't help me enough.... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to complete a review it is kind of you both. We are heartened that you found the afternoon special, our cemeteries and memorials are without a doubt special places...they gave so much and we like many others that visit the battlefields respect what they gave, some for obvious reasons, others for less...

14/2/17 along with 15 colleagues and friends we were collected by the company and all the beurecracy was dealt with prior to starting the tour. This was achieved by the team arriving early therefore maintaining maximum time on the tour. Their in depth knowledge of the area and the history of the sites was simply outstanding. We were taken to... More

Jen's research expertise and contribution to team was reading through war diaries for any info on my grandfathers movements. We spent one day with Jacques and it was one of the most memorable days of my life. We appreciated Jacques incredible knowledge and patience as he explained, and guided us through the Ypres and the Ypres Salient Battlefields, particularly where... More

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review Carol & Byron. We are and do on a daily basis feel privileged in our life...your words "we came across the ocean" has so much resonance with those that came before you to never return. We hope that we do them justice... Warm regards Genevra and Jacques, Flanders Battlefield Tour More
