The team of "Terres de Mémoire" has developed guided tours of the battlefields since 10 years especialy adapted for school or adult groups. We have worked to create guided tours which are flexible, of the highest quality and completely adapted to each group's need.
We feel that altought visits of some of the main sites in the Somme - like for example the Thiepval memorial, the Newfoundland Park and its preserved trenches or the "Lochnagar" crater should not be missed the opportunity should also be given to the teacher or the group leader to choose other sites of particular interest or relevance to the group.
Furthermore, we will be on hand to offer our advice on what that particular relevance may be and what would be feasible during the tour.
If you need transport or a transfer for your group, let us know where the group will be staying or where you would like the group to be collected. We can provide a coach for large groups, we work with a local and well known coach company "Les Courriers Automobiles Picards" with experienced drivers who know well the different sites of the battlefields in the area.
Since 2009 we are delighted to be involved with the Premier's ANZAC Spirit School Prize for South Australia. The Premier's ANZAC Spirit School Prize was first established in 2007 by the state government of South Australia in association with the S.A branch of the Returned and Services League (R.S.L). The aim of this tour is to encourage young South Australians to recognise, connect and maintain the ANZAC Spirit and it is very rewarding for us at "Terres de Mémoire" to accompany, organise and help organise this twelve days visit.
