Claude was a really good guide. He was totally knowledgeable about the Great War and all of dates and stats were in his head. He made sure he did whatever we wanted to do and gave us options wherever it was possible. The tour was comprehensive and gave us a better understanding about the causes of the war. It was an excellent learning experience.

This was a great tour. Our guild was very knowledgeable and friendly. Picked us up right on time and drove to the sites. We visited all the sites I wanted to see and he gave us time to wander at the sites, we were not rushed. It was good to have a driver for on our way home we ran into a traffic jam and he got us out of it quickly. My only complaint would be the price of the tour. It was expensive, I will pay for great service but this price as high.
