A Recent Review of this tour

Claude tailored our WW1 battlefield tour to include a visit to my wife's uncle's grave in Armentieres and special relevant Kiwi locations, gave us unhurried time in Ypres prior to the Last Post ceremony and pointed us to a great local restaurant to enjoy the city and its local food. A really great day that was informative, respectful and memorable. Thanks Claude!
