WW1 Canadian focused Tour including Vimy Ridge

WW1 Canadian focused Tour including Vimy Ridge

From the beautiful towns of Arras or Albert we head out to the war scarred landscape of this region. The morning will be spent exploring the history of the Battle of the Somme. After lunch we head to Vimy Ridge and the ground over which Canadian troops demonstrated their tenacity and courage during the capture of this strategically important feature.

Your experienced guide will tell you the history of these sites and how the war unfolded over these sections of the Western Front.

We only operate private tours, this will be your tour and adapted as necessary to meet your needs during the day. With our years of living and working on these iconic sites we aim to ensure you leave with memories of the sacrifice of a generation.

Given suitable notice time and the availability of records we are able to research and prepare a bespoke tour to cover an individual soldier or unit.
