Full day tour to Ypres, Passendaele, Tyne Cot, the trenches, Flanders Fields Museum and around(Dixsmuide) with private guide
Walking around this pretty Belgian city, it is hard to imagine the incredible highs and lows it has endured. Extreme wealth in the Middle Ages and then, less than one hundred years ago, reduced to rubble during World War I. It is a fitting reminder of people's resilience and their ability to bounce back from adversity. The Ypres Salient battlefields in Flanders, Belgium, are among the most visited on the entire Old Front Line.
Every evening at 8pm since 1928, the Last Post has been sounded under the imposing memorial arches of the Menin Gate. The Last Post is the traditional salute to the fallen and is played in honour of the memory of the soldiers of the then British Empire, who fought and died in Ypres.
Ypres city center, Flanders Fields Museum, Menin Gate, Tyne Cot Cemetery, Hill 66, Sanctuary Wood etc. Daytrip of 8 h
If you wish to attend the last post ceremony then we start the tour at 2PM from Brussels and return at 10pm.
