Fantastic Battlefields Tour - Must Do
Wendy_G, Sept 2023
Roger's knowledge was vast and he easily narrated the various information to us. Roger answered all of our questions, sometimes the answer was 'nobody knows' and why. The Sanctuary Wood Museum is a must visit. Roger allowed sufficient time at each location. If you want an overview of the WWI battles in Belgium or any other WWI information, contact Roger and undertake one of his tours - Roger is great.
Always something new to learn

All of it..Roger was an amazing guide..Hill 62 was very enlightening, he also made a point of taking us to the New Zealand memorial which was much appreciated

Absolutely amazing tour! An absolute must! Fantastic, passionate, friendly tour guide, Kim. Most moving part was when she read out In Flanders Fields to the group! Wow! 😢❤️ Thank you so much for this memorable experience. Jenny and Georgia xx

My husband and I very much enjoyed our Ypres battlefield experience with Roger. He is very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about helping visitors get the most out of their experience while visiting various WWI sites. Definitely worth doing while in Belgium!

Our guide, Roger, was a British Military historian and author, and he presented the war history of this area in a way that was easy to understand and with respect. This was a small group tour (6) so it was easy to talk with Roger and ask questions - he spent more time than I would have expected ensuring that we understood what he was telling us and was happy to expand on anything we had questions about. Just a wonderful, knowledgeable guide.

The guide did a fantastic job putting this piece of WWI into perspective, as well as bringing home the conditions and experiences of the combatants.
The tour was thought...
Karen_C, Apr 2023
The tour was thought provoking and moving emotionally. Why are there wars? They fought for peace. We are thankful for the solders courage and sacrifice. The tour driver was well informed and most helpful. Highly recommended.
1:1 with Roger

Roger was truely great, very knowledgeable, funny, patient! Best thing was he deviated from the standard tour as he wanted to personalize the experience
Bob_K, Nov 2022
Visiting the cemeteries our relatives are in. Plus Rogers knowledge and ability to modify the tour for us. We were the only guests on our tour, we wouldn't expect it if there were other guests can't recommend it enough.
Toptour langs flanders fields

Onze gids was zeer kundig en erg duidelijk. Tijdens het verplaatsen van spot naar spot vertelde hij in de bus ook zeer duidelijke zijinformatie
