Claude was a very competent and knowledgeable guide. The day's history lesson was conducted in a lovely air conditioned vehicle which was handy as it was a little hot and humid. We had a relative that we had hoped to see mentioned on a memorial and Claude ensured that this was accomplished. My voucher said that we had to pay for lunch but Claude was a very kind host and gave us lunch. The lunch could have been delayed as the tea rooms were crowded so he ordered the food and took us off to see a mine crater so that we didn't lose any time from the day. Because one of the museums was unexpectedly closed, he took us to another cemetery in Arras and then took us through the Citadel. These last were not part of the normal tour but he made sure we had a fabulous day

Excellent tour to the Somme. Claude picked us up from our hotel in Lille and spent 8 hours with us showing us the Australian battlefields and monuments on the Western Front. He was very knowledgeable on the history of the war and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants an insight into the war fought by Australians.
We would highly recommend, Claude...
