The Somme tour was great. There was a mixup on the meeting location. Everyone was updated on the new pickup location, except the guide. They called us and told us he’d be about 10 min late. The guide was great. He was very informative and answered all questions. He was very knowledgeable. We saw a lot of sites but I did feel rushed. We really enjoyed the tour.

Oliver was a terrific guide who allowed members of group take extra time at sites as needed. My husband Cliff especially appreciated Oliver's efforts to help ensure the Canadien guide at the Newfoundland memorial was able to assist in locating a relative. A big thank you to Oliver!

I found the tour to be very informative and any questions you had Julian would answer to the best he could. Very knowledgable guide. Very good service. 5/5, would reccomend.

Our tour guide was Regis Piteux, such knowledge and passion. Very professional!!. Couldn't ask for a better guide for the Somme Battlefield tour. Highly recommend!!!!
