What our clients are saying about touring the battlefields of Europe
“Interesting World War One Tour”
The tour was very interesting and also confronting, well worth taking this tour. Guides were very informative and certainly had in depth knowledge and were very helpful. The first day of the tour was too long. The issues were that the coach was a little crammed and not as spacious as other coaches we have travelled on. Wifi was a bit intermittent. It would have been nice to have one organised dinner.
“Worth Doing but a bit monotonous”
The tour was good. Small numbers on Back-Roads tours. The guide (Mark Banning) was excellent, he organised things really well and his extensive knowledge of the subject was amazing. I found the tour a bit monotonous as each day seemed to merge into all the others. The message was similar each day with only the location varying. The accommodation was varied... really excellent on day 1 (L'Hermitage) but not as good on other days. The tour does give excellent coverage of the Australian involvement ...read more in France and Belgium in WW1 so if that's your passion, you will enjoy it.
“Wonderful small group tour”
Our Guide David was excellent! He provided excellent information on the historical background of the sites we visited. He was also an excellent driver and considerate. Surprised one of the couples on tour by taking them to the grave site of her relative - we were all very impressed that he had researched where he was! Van was excellent and had plenty of stops throughout the day. Hotel was quaint and very comfortable. We learnt so much about the sacrifices made by our brave soldiers in WW1. Highly ...read more recommend Back Roads. Thanks Global Journeys for another great booking!
“4 days Immersed in the Battlefields”
Having done 1 day of the Somme Battlefields tour back in 2012, this time we undertook the full 4 day experience. It was nothing short of amazing. The knowledge and giving nature of our guide Mark Banning making it all that so much more special. The only suggestion I would make is that, while this is an ANZACS tour and therefore focusing on the Australian and New Zealand contingents, there needs to be a more balanced view which includes other allies, including the British. I will admit, that this ...read more is a very selfish view, as the reason I was there was to go to Poziere where my great grandfather is mentioned on the memorial wall, however I think there could be more perspective in the tour. All in all, this is an amazing tour, with an amazing company and even more amazing guide.
