14/2/17 along with 15 colleagues and friends we were collected by the company and all the beurecracy was dealt with prior to starting the tour. This was achieved by the team arriving early therefore maintaining maximum time on the tour. Their in depth knowledge of the area and the history of the sites was simply outstanding. We were taken to... More

Jen's research expertise and contribution to team was reading through war diaries for any info on my grandfathers movements. We spent one day with Jacques and it was one of the most memorable days of my life. We appreciated Jacques incredible knowledge and patience as he explained, and guided us through the Ypres and the Ypres Salient Battlefields, particularly where... More

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review Carol & Byron. We are and do on a daily basis feel privileged in our life...your words "we came across the ocean" has so much resonance with those that came before you to never return. We hope that we do them justice... Warm regards Genevra and Jacques, Flanders Battlefield Tour More

An unmissable experience. Our guide Raoul was superbly informed, the numbers on the tour were fine and every stop was a real eye opener, however much you have read about the war seeing the landscape and memorials adds so much. To stand at Tyne Cot and look down towards Ypres and remember what happened there should be compulsory

You're feedback on Raoul is warmly received, thankfully most schools in the UK have the First World War and field trips on the school curriculums, maybe ALL politicians should? Thank you again for your review. Kind regards Genevra & Jacques - Flanders Battlefield Tour More

Jacques made our two days very special. His knowledge and gentle enthusiasm is without doubt well worth the visit. You cannot help but gain an insight into the terrible events of WW1and come back more humble

Visited here on a school trip many years ago. So moving, our teachers were crying and we were given a poppy to go and place on somebody's grave.

Thank you...we always suggest placing a poppy on an Known Unto God (undentified grave) as the chances of people placing one there any other day is unlikely, and nice to know that all soldiers are visited. Kind regards Genevra & Jacques - Flanders Battlefield Tour More

We could not recommend this tour enough. My 15 year old daughter and I stumbled across Flanders Battlefield Tours on the internet the day before we went to Ypres after having our itinerary messed about while travelling. We could not have been luckier - Jacques, or Jack as he permitted us to call him, is a true Flemish man and... More

We arranged our tour about a week in advance. Jacques and Genevra were very prompt and contacted us immediately with all the details we needed to get from Bruxelles to Ypres, where to pick up the tour etc. Jacques was a most wonderful tour guide, his knowledge of the area, of the history, and of the complicated memory of the...

We had booked the afternoon Grand Tour well before travelling to Europe and had no idea what we were to expect. The email exchanges were good and directions provided proved to be accurate. It is noted that no payment was required at booking: this was done at pickup time for the tour and is by cash only. We know little... More

Thank you for your candid review it is appreciated, during the busy months from March through to November the tours are generally fully booked, understandably during the Winter months when it is quieter the tours may be operating at a less than half capacity. There are some people that do like the interaction with other customers, there are those that... More

I've done lots of tours around the world, but this must be one of the best. Jack is warm, friendly, EXTREMELY knowledgeable and passionate about WWI history. His tour covered all the major sites, he answered everyone's questions thoughtfully and respectfully. This tour was very engaging, thought-provoking, small and intimate and well worth the €38 per person. I walked away... More
