      Our guide, Claude, was outstanding. We originally planned to tour the WW1 sites by ourselves, but opted for the tour. Solo would have been very difficult due to poor signage and other factors. The tour was good value and well worth the money. We departed from Lille. Claude was knowledgeable!

      We saw what was advertised including Vimy Ridge, Neuville Saint Vaast Canadian N2 Cemetery, Courcelette Canadian Memorial, Thiepval Memorial, and the Beaumont Hamel Newfoundland Memorial. We also stopped in front of but did not get out to walk around a number of other memorials including a memorial to one of the Australian divisions involved in the Battle of the Somme I'm pretty sure that we would have been able to walk around if we had asked. Probably my favourite location was Vimy Ridge although every stop was quite interesting in its own way. The Thiepval Memorial to the missing is really quit staggering with the 73,000 names of soldiers with no known graves.

      Our guide, Claude, spoke excellent English, was quite personable and really knew his stuff. He provided in-depth descriptions of each site and was able to easily answer every question we asked. We also never felt rushed.
