My wife and myself booked with Quasimodo tour from Bruges and Phillip was our driver/guide. Phillip has obviously built up a great deal of knowledge about the First World War but he is also sensitive to people’s reasons to go on this trip. My own was my grandfather served in Anson battalion and was there from age 17 onwards , and by going you could sense the awfulness of this war . It is hoped that this is not becoming a tourist venture but an acknowledgement of the sacrifice these people made .
The trip was great from start to finish. Coach was clean and comfortable. Perfect amount of time in both cities and the tour enabled us to see a lot of different interesting things. Our tour guide Andrea was great - really informative and had lots of interesting facts. The use of microphone and earphones meant we could hear everything. Overall it was a fantastic trip and would 100% recommend.
Very informative friendly tour. Philippe included an Irish memorial for us and an American memorial for another person on the tour which was great. Ieper is beautiful and the Menin Gate is amazing. Lunch was very good. I crossed the road to Hooge Cemetery with the spare time from lunch. Highly recommend this tour.
Very knowledgeable guide, sufficient free time in Gent and Bruges, good value for money, if you don’t fancy the restaurant for lunch, walk up the road and just round the corner is a fab cafe that makes an amazing lunch
It was worth every penny. It was an amazing experience. The guide has the expertise in what he’s doing, first time to do a review because I was really happy with the experience.
