This is a great experience to get a feel for what the troops encountered while fighting in this region. Our tour guide Claude was excellent and made the day very special for us. Even though it is a long day it is well paced. The Last Post Ceremony in Ypres was a great way to finish our very informative and emotive day. Would highly recommend this tour.
