      Claude is a fantastic host and guide. Amiable, knowledgeable and professional, he judged the pace of the tour and our interest in certain subjects to keep it from being boring. He explained the horrors of the War while being impartial. A great tour and a must for anyone interested in the history of this horrendous and wasteful time in history

        Calificación General: 10/10
