Tour duration: 12 hours

Visit the battlefields, cemeteries and other World War I memorials in Flanders Fields in a private 8 seater mini-bus in one day

The one day tour focuses on World War One battlefields, cemeteries and memorials in Flanders Fields

Do you wish to see where the Germans launched their first gas attack? You will visit the site with me.

Do you want to see the German bunkers on top of hills and ridges and see from where the allied troups had to run up the hill, unprotected? Discover Messines Ridge, Hill 60 and Passchendale with me on our tour.

Tyne Cot Cemetery is the biggest Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery on the Western Front. Over 12. 500 soldiers are burried there. Do you know what percentage of the graves is for an unidentified body? I will explain you during the tour.

Each day since 1922 the Last Post is blown at Menin Gate in Ypres at 8:00 pm. Do you want to attend this short but touching ceremony? Join my tour and see the bugle playes of the Ypres Fire Brigade in action.
