ANZAC on the Western Front - Special ANZAC Ceremony

  • 7 days
  • France / Belgium
  • Max 18 Passengers

Overview

From the trenches of Ypres to monuments marking The Somme, our ANZAC tour maps Australian and New Zealand troops’ movements in WWI – delving into the stories of the soldiers’ involvement in the battles of the Western Front. With poignant visits to cemeteries and national memorials on the agenda, as well as a special ANZAC Day service at Villers-Bretonneux – join us in remembering those who fought during the Great War on an unforgettable history-themed journey.

Worth Noting…
For tours departing on the 22nd April, Day 3 and Day 4 of the itinerary will be exchanged – meaning the visit to The Somme is featured on Day 3 and the ANZAC Day service takes place on Day 4.
