    Our guide provided excellent insights and information as we toured selected WW1 sites in Northern France and Belgium during this one day tour. Being a small group we were able to easily interact with the guide, asking questions and gaining a better understanding of the Western Front. The Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate was wonderful & very moving. Highly recommend this tour.
