ANZACS on the Western Front

  • 5 days
  • France / Belgium
  • Max 18 Passengers


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. And with poignant visits to cemeteries and national memorials on the agenda, this history-themed adventure is perfect for those wishing to learn more about their ancestors who fought and died in The Great War. Please note: this tour runs on selected dates throughout the season.

Worth Noting…
for ANZAC Ceremony departures, our accommodation in Amiens is subject to change. Due to the large number of visitors at this time, two Back-Roads tour groups may stay at the same hotel at the same time.

    There were only 11 of us on the tour with a guide and driver. Went on back roads rather on the busy highways which was great as I got to see more of the countryside. Mark Banning went out of his way to make sure I got all the information I needed to know by writing notes on a regular basis. I am Deaf.
