When it comes to costing, it’s difficult for us to cover all permutations of group sizes, room configurations, dates etc, which is why we quote you for the tour you have in mind based on your dates, your choice of hotel and for as long or short as you wish. In a nutshell, tailor made for you.
We would therefore be most grateful if you could tell us about the basics of the tour you have in mind using the this form. May be first have a look at our ‘Planning a Tour’ guide to the left here.
We’re not great fans of forms but it does allow us get an idea of those factors which have an influence on cost. You can of course just email us and tell us in your own words what you have in mind bearing in mind the guidelines below.
Car hire: We’re sorry but we are currently unable to help with car hire though there are many rental outlets at Lille rail terminal (for those thinking of taking the train from London) and all airports.
How many nights?
For either the Somme or Ypres try and earmark at least 3 nights as this will give you 2 ‘clear’ days. 4 nights is about right for either or both the Somme and Ypres. 5 nights even better. At a push 3 nights for both Somme and night Ypres is possible but a bit of a rush. Don’t forget this is your tour and we can structure everything to the time you have available! (See also ‘planning’ link below left)
How many people?
Please mention the age of any children and any other factors we may need to know such as disabilities etc. Also bear in mind the per-
How many rooms?
Most of the hotels we work with have double rooms (i.e. one bed for two persons) or twin rooms (two single or two double beds). Somme of our Somme hotels have triple rooms usually comprising a double and a single bed. Our Ypres hotels have triple rooms comprising a double and a roll-
We need to know how many rooms of each type you’ll need please (as triple rooms usually harder to come by it’s helpful to back it both ways).
At present our Self-
This option is only of interest to those travelling from the UK. Just enter ‘No’ if you will already be in France or Belgium.
We offer the choice of either ferry or Eurotunnel from Folkestone/Dover to Calais (same cost whichever you choose). This is the only route we offer at present so please feel free to make your own arrangements for services from Portsmouth, Hull etc.
Is this tour for a present? Are you looking to bolt this tour on to a holiday elsewhere? Do please feel free to ask us any questions as this is your tour which can be tailored to your preferences. We are here to help you.
Please have a look at the ‘A Personal Guide’ option from the main menu. A personal guide can work out quite expensive, but well worth the expense (you need to book early). We only work with the best guides who will pick you up at your hotel using their transport for a whole day’s exploration (half or split days not possible). This option is invaluable if you want to follow the footsteps of a distant relative or explore a battlefield not included in our Self-
When to travel?
Just give us a rough idea. Please bear in mind that the cost is the same throughout the year and regardless of weekdays. You may wish to avoid either side of these key dates when it can be quite busy: 25 April, 1 July, 31 July 2017 (Ypres only), 11 November, Also check online for French and Belgium public holidays etc (see links bottom of this page).
Consider avoiding French and (Somme) and Belgian (Ypres) public holidays?
