July 2021: Western Front Tour

We have just completed a fantastic tour covering the entire WW1 Western Front, starting near the Swiss border, exploring the Vosges and Alsace battlefields,  the Lorraine and Saint-Mihiel salient, Verdun, the Meuse-Argonne, the Marne, the Somme, Arras and Vimy ridge, the Flanders battlefields up to Dixmuide and the other end of the Western Front ! Really an unforgettable experience...

 

"Sylvestre, we would like to thank you for the WW I and WW II Normandy beaches trip for which you were our guide. We were very impressed with your choice of locations, your deep knowledge of the areas, and your willingness to answer all of our questions.  Your Mercedes van was very comfortable for the four of us, and you safely delivered us to the various sites we visited along the 3,000 km. that we traveled.  Your friendliness and good humor were on display every day. We would strongly recommend you for anyone interested in a similar trip.  

Thanks again for a wonderful historical experience."
