Informative day with Olivier who was a fantastic guide. Loved the interactive GPS maps that showed the trenches from WWI and also the photos dating back to that time. Quaint little cafe for lunch. Would recommend to anyone as Olivier was very adaptable for his audience.

Having started the tour with little knowledge of the Great War, it's progression and the involvement of all the different countries, I ended the tour with a more comprehensive understanding. We booked the tour after deciding on a last minute holiday in which to incorporate something my husband had always wanted to do. Visit and understand more about the Great... More

Olivier is an exceptional guide. His knowledge about and enthusiasm for what he does shines though the entire day. His attention to customer communication should also be noted. He responded promptly to every inquiry I made prior to booking and offered advice on where to stay and how to get to a train station where he could meet us. World... More

Olivier is a great tour guide with a complete knowledge of WW1 history. We did it from an Australian perspective and were extremely happy with our tour. The mercedes minivan is very comfortable, pick up prompt and this tour is extremely good value for money.

After some research we arranged a battlefields tour with Olivier of Chemins d,Histoire Battlefields Tours. We completed this two day tour today, and cannot recommend this company highly enough. Olivier our guide had not only tracked down the site our great uncle... More

Our family (me, husband, and two boys 13 & 10) took a day tour with Olivier of the Canadian WWI sites at Vimy Ridge and the Somme. Olivier is a very personable guide with a great deal of knowledge about WWI. We learned a lot and the tablet that he used to show us the maps of the trenches was... More

I did a tour with olivier and was amazed at his knowledge. He is a very passionate and knowledgeable tour guide with an understanding of all nations involved. He was flexible with his tour so that people in the group could visit relatives graves. I would definitely recommend using this tour.
