We      are      one      of      the      longest-standing      companies specialising   in   small-group   tours   to   the   Somme   and   Ypres battlefields.      Having   taken   over   300   groups   on   tours   to these   battlefields   (and   beyond)   we   now   specialise   in   our hugely   popular   Self-Drive   tours.   Travel   when   you    want   to travel   for   as   long   as   you   wish   -   just   ‘pack   and   go’   -   we   do the   rest!      You   take   your   car   and   we   arrange   your   hotel accommodation   and   Channel   crossing   (for   UK   travellers), as   well   as   providing   all   the   maps   and   directions   you’ll need.        What    lies    at    the    heart    of    our    tours    are    our acclaimed    self-drive    Somme    and/or    Ypres    battlefield guides   -   your   ‘window   to   the   past’.      No   other   self-drive guides   have   so   much   detail   and   are   so   easy   to   follow!     Please read on. . .
A s    you    may    already    have    found,    there    are    many    companies    offering battlefield   tours,   especially   at   the   centenary   of   the   Great   War   spanning 2014-2018.   Our   tours   however   are   quite   different.   It’s   only   when   you receive   our   guide   pack   that   you   realise   just   how   different   and   how   detailed our   self-drive   guides   are   (a   comment   we   receive   time   after   time).   Our   self- drive   guides   are   also   much   more   detailed   and   easier   to   follow   compared with other self-drive options. From   my   personal   experience,   visiting   the   battlefields   of   the   Great   War   is quite    a    moving    experience,    an    experience    best    appreciated    in    the company   of   close   friends   or   family   (or   alone),   without   any   restrictions   such as   the   rigid   timetable   of   a   coach   tour   dictating   the   pace.   It   can   be   quite frustrating   to   see   the   battlefields   passing   before   your   eyes   without   being able   to   stop   wherever   and   whenever   you   want   to   stop,   and   to   explore where   you   want   to   explore.   The   freedom   to   truly   comprehend   the   impact of   the   battlefields   at   your   own   pace,   equipped   with   your   own   detailed ‘then   and   now’   guide(s),   is   what   I   always   set   out   to   achieve,   and   perhaps what today sets our tours apart. Rather   than   me   clutter   up   this   page   (as   I   tend   to   do…),   please   follow   the menu   links   at   the   top   (left)   of   the   page   to   find   out   more   about   the   Self- Drive   tours   we   specialise   in   organising,   so   that   you   just   ‘pack   and   go’ leaving   us   to   make   all   the   arrangements   and   to   provide   you   with   the   best Self-Drive guide available.

From Diane Kenwood  Editor  Women's Weekly It   was   a   profoundly   moving and   fascinating   trip,   which, thanks    to    your    stunningly detailed       and       thorough organisation   went   without   a hitch. . . Your    attention    to    detail    is astonishing.    .    .    You    really did   bring   every   location   to life    in    the    most    fantastic way.   (I   loved   your   personal remarks   dotted   through   the commentary).     It     was     so marvellous   to   be   able   to   do everything   at   our   own   pace and   spend   however   long,   or short,   a   time   as   we   chose   at the places we stopped. Thank    you    so    much    for everything   -   for   your   help   in the   early   stages   sorting   out what   the   best   itinerary   and approach     would     be,     for organising   all   the   bookings and   for   the   brilliant   support packs.   I   have   raved   about your   company   to   everyone I've    spoken    to    since    my return    (and    will    definitely write      about      it      in      the magazine)    and    I    know    at least     one     person     who's definitely     going     to     book through   you   as   a   result.   I hope     you     get     inundated with bookings!
