Claude was an amazing guide and quite a pleasure to spend the day with at the Canadian war sites. We felt we learned more than we had been taught in the past. The vehicle was comfy and he is a very good driver. It was a 12 hour day but really flew by and the last Post was very moving. We would highly recommend Claude. Thanks for the great day!
