An outstanding day with Claude for which we are most grateful. Claude communicated really well with us in English and he was certainly very knowledgeable. The first part of our day required some customisation which was expertly managed and fitted in seamlessly to our tour. We highly recommend touring the ballefields with Claude and would we would like to thank him for a very memorable experience. Thanks too Claude for providing such a comfortable and appropriate vehicle.\\\\\\\
