A Recent Review of this tour

An excellent tour, Roger had scheduled everything I wished to see and because we had time, he included a number of other sites of interest, such as the memorial to John Macrae and Polygon Wood. Lunch was at a delightful cafe / restaurant with garden setting. The stop off for a Trappist beer also enjoyable. All topped off with attending Last Post at the Menin Gate at 8pm and locating the name of another Great Uncle, the third of the 3 Great Uncles who never returned home to New Zealand from WW1.
