A Recent Review of this tour

We really enjoyed our time with Claude. He had a wealth of knowledge to share about the battlefields and was able to explain in full at a level we were able to comprehend. We really appreciated that we had sufficient time at each location and at no time did we feel rushed or hurried but rather had the opportunity to discover at our own pace. At the end of the day we appreciated being delivered back to our apartment in Brussels. Thanks Claude for a wonderful time.
