Sylvester us the best!
Cathi_B, May 2023
A day with Sylvester was a comprehensive, informative look at the Battle of the Somme. He hit more highlights than we could have covered in three days! And some off the beaten path stops we never would have seen. We loved it!
Making History Real
Sonja_D, Mar 2023
We decided during our stay in France to experience some of the WWI history up close and found this tour to do so. Our guide was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, not just about the places we toured, but also about the area in general. The diversity of sites we visited, from memorials to preserved battlefields, was astounding and way more than we expected. Would absolutely recommend this tour to a friend.
Fantastic tour of the Somme
James_M, Mar 2023
A fantastic tour - we had a really enjoyable and insightful day. Sylvestre was a great guide, giving us lots of history and facts on the tour, moving at the right speed and allowing us to take our time at each stop. We learnt a lot from our trip and asked lots of questions. We were not looking for a specific grave (although if you are, Sylvestre will help you to find it) - we were looking for more a general tour and history of the Somme and this tour was fantastic. We would recommend this tour - it was excellent.
Great tour
