Claude was a fantastic...
Colleen_K, May 2023
Claude was a fantastic guide. Very passionate and knowledgeable about WWI and the battlefields. We focused on the Canadian experience and he helped to make the day memorable. Would recommend Claude to anyone who is interested in spending the day in remembrance.

The guide did not give any history...
Marianne K, June 2016
The guide did not give any history along the drive from Bruges to Vimy for 1.5 hours he did not point out anything of interest.. there were lots of things he could have pointed out .. we had to ask what was what. The handouts he gave us at end of the trip .. were not in order and some we backwards. He should have had a map that showed the area and what was happening in the war on the map .. and where the fronts were etc ... key battles etc ... Should explain where we are going and what the significance was to the war etc ...
