Amazing tour with a fantastic guide!
KarenJackson, May 2023
My husband and I took this tour, wanting some history, geography and context for the WWI battles fought here. Our guide, Soren, hit it out of the park. Incredibly knowledgeable and full of interesting stories. Any questions we asked just led to more interesting information and stories. The places we went to were all over - we can't imagine trying to do this ourselves without a knowledgeable, local guide - we would have missed so much. We really appreciated the pace and communication. Can't recommend this guide or tour enough!

We boekten deze tour met heel veel verwachtingen en alles werd ingelost. De gids komt uit London en spreekt alleen engels, maar hij kent de battlefields van WWI rond Ieper waar hij 15 jaar woont als geen ander. Zijn grootoom overleed daar in de oorlog, was zijn held en zoals hij zelf zegt, de eerste keer dat hij de streek rond Ieper bezocht, voelde als thuiskomen. Hij deelt zijn passie, kent de meest ontroerende verhalen, de verborgen en beruchte plekken van de Grote Oorlog. Top!
