      This was an excellent tour to learn about the Canadian experience in WWI. It is a tour in a small van 6/7 people max so very personal attention and we were very fortunate to be the only clients that day. Claude, our, guide was very knowledgeable about Canada's role in the battles and the impact. We visited the key sites including Vime, Passchendale , Ypres etc There was a good mix of cemeteries, battle sites and museums. Claude kept it interesting and paced things well. The day ended with the last post at the Menin Gate. A very memorable full day. Highly recommended. I should also mention the wonderful student guides at Vimy.
