Tour Overview

Come join us on the Western Front at Villers-Bretonneux as we commemorate the sacrifice and valour of a generation who long ago fought and died so far from home.   Over the past 17 years we have handled numerous commemorative tours to the Somme and Flanders battlefields. Your specialist Battlefield Tour Manager has been specially selected as he is an expert in these regions and well versed in the path our ‘Diggers’ trod nearly a century ago.  He will separate fact from fiction and bring to life the whole tragic Western Front campaign. Specially designed to visit the main battlefields, cemeteries, memorials and museums, this tour offers you a unique and personal experience.
