Excellent guide who went out of his way to find relatives of a fellow passenger. Informative, over whelming at times but well worth doing. Highly recommended.

Extremely well organised. Small vehicle with only two other couples on the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to places that would interest all of us according to our nationality. The Australian National Memorial and Villers-Bretonneux were very special places and quite emotional to visit. We found that we didn't have enough time to explore the area so would recommend to others either a two day tour or an overnight stay in one of the lovely villages.
