A Recent Review of this tour

This tour of significant Australian sites in Flanders with Claude was outstanding. Highly knowledgeable, interesting and considerate, Claude was able to put the events in Flanders into a broader context that made the sites, museums, cemeteries and memorials we saw more significant as part of a whole. Next time we're in Europe we plan to do a similar tour of the Somme with Claude
