Battlefields Trip

Hi Phillipe Thank you so much for an excellent trip on Sunday. This holiday in Belgium was part of a Christmas present for my husband, but your tour was most certainly the highlight. It was rather an impulse decision when we saw your brochure in our hotel in Brugge and as my husband had always wished to visit the WW1 battle sites it was the perfect day. Your expert knowledge and brilliant memory for dates,, figures and detail made the poignancy of these terrible events very ' real'. We have some great memories and photos from the trip and it is something we will never forget. I would wholly recommend this trip for honest, educational, varied and enjoyable content. Phillipe was a great guide and host and ' did that little bit extra' to make the whole experience first class. Thank you.

Hi Philip Just wanted to say thank you so much for the brilliant tour we had with you last August. I feel very priveleged because the original tour we had booked got cancelled on us and at the last minute our hotel recommended yours and all I can say is my husband, son and I would thoroughly recommend it to everyone. Your knowledge was fantastic and nothing was any bother to you. Thank you so much and we are looking forward to our next visit to Belgium and we will do the tour all over again Thank You again for making it all so interesting and enjoyable June Alan and Andrew Agnew

Dear Sharon, A somewhat belated message of thanks for the tour of the battlefields that we came on together with our friends on August 23rd. It was a great day delivered with passion and great respect for those who fought and lost their lives. It was also a privilege to meet some of the gardeners from the War Graves Commission who so lovingly tend the cemeteries. Your voice is ideal for the subject and the commentary was very informative.......

Flanders Fields

Dear Sharon and Philippe, Thank you so much for responding. We were in your lovely country in September 2005 and Philippe, you made our trip wonderful...... The Tyne Cot Cemetery still stands out in my mind. It reminded me of our Arlington Cemetery for our service men here in the States........

Dear Sharon, A brief message to thank you for a wonderful tour last Friday! The way in which we were taken through ‘Flanders Fields’ was sensitive, informative, evocative and spell-binding; history brought to life in a manner that was entirely appropriate to the place, people and events concerned. Both Ali and I are involved in education, and were able to appreciate the skills and natural abilities you demonstrated as a communicator. A perfect end to our week away in Bruges, and we could not have asked for anything more from the experience. Many, many thanks

Hi Sharon, This is just a quick "thank you" for the two tours we went on in September when we were in Brugge. The Flanders Fields tour was quite fascinating and when we teamed up with Johan as well, answered all of Gerald's questions concerning his father's movements in WWI, to the extent that he's now completely satisfied with all the information provided. The Triple Treat tour was excellent. Thanks again, Sharon - we would highly recommend your tours for anyone who is in Brugge!

I am back in Canada but wanted to send along a thank you for the absolutely excellent tour with Philippe of Ypres area on Thursday past. I am so glad I took the time for this opportunity which was so moving to me. I was very touched by Philippe’s commitment which helped to make the experience very moving indeed. Thanks again so very much.

Sharon Just a note to thank you for the fantastic Flanders Fields Tour on Wednesday 22 August. As a former teacher of history and someone who has taught The First World War and indeed used the Coats booklet on Ypres back in the 80s, I would like to say how informative and interesting the tour was. As with all good teachers, your knowledge and passion for your subject matter came over very well with, indeed, a tear in the eye with the reading of In Flanders Fields by John McRae at Essex Farm.

Hello, Philippe and Sharon Paul and I wanted to follow up on yesterday's tour and tell you how great it was. Both of us came away with the same feeling: we learned so much more than we had expected and now have a much deeper understanding of the events leading up to the war and of how the war unfolded. So, thank you! It was an unforgettable experience. On a personal note, I also wanted to add how much I enjoyed seeing (and experiencing) how your company has evolved from the early days. One of the main reasons we wanted to do the tour on this trip was that the tour I took back in 1993 was the highlight of my trip to Brugge ... and, now that I was here with my husband, who had never been here before, I wanted to share with him the best of Brugge. You did not disappoint! All the best

Triple treat

Thank you for a sensitive and thought provoking tour. Although we had some knowledge of the struggles, your informative description whilst we were standing on the spot has given us a much clearer realisation of what life was like for those soldiers, the effect on the lives of local people, then and now, and the overall story of how events unfolded. We feel very strongly that this tour made our trip to Bruges a very important one in our lives and have already recommended you to other hotel guests, thanks again and our best wishes to you,
