    Had a fantastic tour with an excellent guide and driver. Very knowledgable about WW1 and the various battlefields we visited. Very moving and enjoyable at the same time. The amount of information packed into a 5 day tour was incredible. The small group (we had 17 people) is more manageable than the big groups with the guide readily accessible. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Back Roads Tour to anyone who has an interest in WW1 or a relative that either fought or died there.
