testimonials


The tour was excellent and very well organised. Both Annette and Christian are extremely knowledgeable, organised and did lots of
extra unexpected things for everyone which was wonderful. Would highly recommend them for anyone wanting a personalised
experience visiting the WW1 sites who have family connections to the war. Fiona - Anzac 2019


I just wanted to touch base and tell you what a wonderful tour I had a few weeks ago for Anzac Day. Annette and Christian where simply
the best and went above and beyond what I expected.I could fault nothing for the 4 days I spent with them. Accomodation and meals where outstanding. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know wanting to do a Western Front Tour. Thanks again. Rebecca - Anzac 2019
