The Tours

100th Anniversary Tours

Each battlefield tour corresponds to a key event or battle that will see some official commemorative activity. The tours are not just a series of unconnected "hop on, hop off" visits; each stop whether on the coach to a cemetery or on foot to a battlefield site will be chronologically linked to the one previous. Each itinerary will include battlefield walking and customers should be prepared to walk between one to five miles on a given day. Museum visits are included to support the tour dialogue as is a comprehensive tour handout for each customer, containing trench maps, battlefield histories, war diary extracts and personal accounts specific to the tour that has been booked. The battlefield tour will precede the commemoration date, so as to minimise the opportunity for disruption of the itinerary and allow customer participation.

Tour duration will be five days and four nights and based on half board accommodation at either two or three star hotels. Breakfast and a three course evening meal with wine is included. In order to keep the tour chronolgy, some of the tours will involve multi site accommodation; for example two nights in Belgium and two in France. The group size is limited to 15 persons only.
