Expert guides

We have offered our signature Back-Roads Battlefields tours of France and Belgium for over twenty years. Each one is led by our expert Battlefields Tour Leaders, some of whom are former servicemen and women – and all of whom have a keen interest in history. This includes Steve who reveals his deep knowledge of WWI in our Q&A.

Bring history to life

Trace the shifting battlelines of WWI as our guides recount the strategies that brought both victory and defeat to the forces that once fought over the earth where you stand. From Ypres to The Somme and Villers-Bretonneux, you’ll have the opportunity to see world-famous Belgian and French battlefields from a soldier’s perspective.

Flexible tours

Our small group touring philosophy allows us to be flexible when it comes to selecting the sites we visit. Our Tour Leaders welcome requests to visit locations where guests’ ancestors may have fought or been buried. For many, our WWI Battlefields tours are not just educational experiences, but personal ones that allow them to forge a poignant link with the past.

Pay your respects

Our Battlefields tours are journeys of remembrance and respect for those soldiers that didn’t return home. During your tour, you’ll learn many stories of brave ANZACs who fought on the Western Front. There’ll also be an opportunity to pay your respects at monuments like the Menin Gate in Ypres and to observe the ANZAC Day Dawn Service in Villers-Bretonneux.
