A Recent Review of this tour

Just what we wanted!--an interesting and really informative tour of a variety of battle sites and cemeteries. Particularly interesting was the contrast between the Allied and German burial sites. Claude is so knowledgeable and yet so approachable and adaptable. Some of the sites we intended to visit were not open, but he quickly substituted other venues in Ypres and elsewhere in the country. His vehicle is very comfortable and he is very easy to understand. We enjoyed the day.
