A Recent Review of this tour

Roland was flexible in modifying your so we could visit German cemetery as well as Tyncote visited trenches, Flanders museum and Closing Taps. He was good company with stories about sites but about Belgium sites and government too. We were 3, grandparents and college age grandson. Rolands Tour was great for all. Also appreciated 9 hours not 12 or 13 as some others
