A Recent Review of this tour

What a wonderful day we had with Claude touring the countryside, seeing and hearing about various war sites we visited and tasting some of the best beer in the world. Claude gave us everything we asked for and more. He made sure we were back at the dock in plenty of time and took us to a local restaurant for lunch that gave us the flavor of the area. I would highly recommend Claude for any tour that he does in the area.
