A Recent Review of this tour

This was an excellent tour. Claude was very informative and an excellent guide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Belgium. We were extremely impressed with every aspect of this tour, but especially how knowledgeable Claude was about Canada's role in WW1.
