Here are some testimonials from our customers!!

Just a quick note to say a big "Thank You" for the weekend in Ypres! Please feel free to use this comment on your testimonial page.  I have a couple of photos for you too!
The four of us had a wonderful time; especially the birthday boy, Mike, who had always wanted to visit the front line, the trenches and the cemeteries and the Menin Gate since....well.... forever!
I must say that I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, and this enjoyment was enhanced by you being the ideal host, guide and friend on the trip!
The weekend was a perfect balance of reflection, history and your amusing anecdotes; and it allowed us to learn about the 1914-1918 period, as well as having some free time to explore the quaint streets of Ypres and sample the "must-haves" of Moules, Frites, Belgium Chocolates and beers!!
The two days flew by and we'd love to accompany you on another trip sometime!
Please don't forget to send us details of the Moscow/St Petersburg trip for next year!

 -JUst wanted to thank you for a fantastic weekend - very well organised, and I am delighted to have found my Great-Uncle's memorial and also the place where he died at Chapelles-Armentiere. It was great to have the trip personalised in this way, and we want to come again on the Somme visit.

Thank you so much for a wonderful Saturday, what a moving and emotional experience it was for us - we are still stunned by it all and definitely would like to 'do' the Somme daytrip. We have ordered the film Hill 60! Many Thanks for a truely memorable day
Anne and Mark Palmer Ypres Day trip April 2012


We have just returned from a weekend in Ypres and cannot recommend it highly enough. Everything about the weekend was excellent, from the comfortable minibus to the wonderful hotel and most importantly, the very friendly & knowledgeable guides. The itinerary was very full and it felt like we were away for longer than two days. We hope to book on future tours and see you both soon!
Nicola and Dan Carter Ypres weekend May 2012


We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the weekend spent in your company during our visit to Normandy. As usual you both showed immense enthusiasm and knowledge of the locations we visited. I know I personally had a problem relating to the atrocities on the beaches until we visited Omaha when we were given names and photos of the "lads" that lost their lives fighting for their cause. Then it made it all so real. Today I ordered “The Longest Day”, Carve her name with Pride and Saving Private Ryan on DVD... Thank you once again
Sylvia and Bruce McPhee Normandy Tour 2011

This two day trip to Ypres was one of the best birthday presents I have ever been given. The guides were superb; their passion and knowledge of the subject and area really enhanced a very full couple of days that flew by and ended much too quickly. Their organisation and planning cannot be faulted and we were made to feel part of a very special group of people very quickly. Believe me, if a 56 year old smashed up ex rugby player can be brought to tears by the power of the place, anyone can. An experience I will remember for a very long time.
