    I was particularly impressed with the background knowledge of David Lombardi, his ability to locate grave sites identified by those on the tour and his ever present easy manner with us. I was also impressed with our driver and his never failing manoeuvring ability in sites which would have posed a driving challenge to anyone. All in all a very informative, satisfying, and enjoyable experience.

    Our amazing guide Dave gave an excellent presentation. Accommodation was great. Driver and vehicle was very good. We came away with a much greater awareness and appreciation of the sacrifice.
